# block export command

Syntax

block export filename s <binary> <range>

Export an assembly of blocks to a file named s. A path can be part of the file name. If no extension is specified, .3dgrid is assumed.

The optional keyword sbinary can be given to indicate a binary output file. By default, an ASCII file format is assumed. The binary-format file size will be smaller than the ASCII-format file size, and it takes less loading time if being imported by 3DEC later. The ASCII-format grid file specification can be found with the block import command description.
