I recently showed how to create an XCLIP for XREFs (found here) but today’s tip gives you some more options. The Express Tool CLIPIT will clip reference objects – not just XREFed drawings. It will work on the following objects:
CLIPIT will also use round objects like circles and ellipses as the defining boundary whereas XCLIP will not.
- CLIPIT <enter>
- Select the object that defines the clipping border (shown below = circle)
- Select the reference object
- Specify the arcs smoothness (like VIEWRES or WHIPARC) <enter>
