Hello,

That is a good question.
As far as I understand, the reader does not act the same way compare to other cad formats. This is because a DWG or DXF file might contain huge number of entities. In this case, the reader tries to group entites of the same time into a single geometry feature (one for frames, one for polylines, one for meshes, …)

It might also create additional features (transform) for each block if you have the option Feature tree = Full

Hy @ccamilo ,

organising the Features by blocks sounds great… :slightly_smiling_face:

The dwg Attribute Reader in 4.4 also sounds interessting in this Case. :wink:
