Dear Danel ,

I want to combination some blocks while just build blocks. I have no idear about how to organize them. I think i must remember all joint-points of all the blocks and set there positions. Is there any function to mark these joint-points in block ? I want to solve the problem with parameterization for Dynamically generate machine design dxf files.

I will really looking forward to your reply !

Yes, netDxf supports blocks with attributes.

If what you need is a way to store additional information in a block reference to be able to read it with netDxf, you have two options: to use block attributes or to add extended to your inserts (aka block reference). I do not clearly understand what are you trying to achieve.
