im abit lost here...
i've tried allmost everything i found on the web on how to reduce dwg file size:
and nothing seems to work, my file size is approx 15mb when it should be no more then 2mb
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you MANY strange LineTypes in your DWG ?
If YES :
If NOT: can you share (send us - Dropbox or any other manner) your DWG in .ZIP/.RAR format ?
I thought I was pretty nifty when it came to AutoCAD and it's 3D environment, regardless of the 3rd party platform. then one day, as it relates to a large dwg when by all indicators it should not be, I ran into the answer. It could possibly be your issue.
In modeling we can choose to record the history of objects we use to generate a 3d solid, like circles, squares, or any shape that we extrude, etc.
also, we can choose to show this history or not, it is possible to load down a dwg with a ton of history unbeknownst to the user.
the command BREP Removes the history from 3D solids and composite solids, and associativity from surfaces.
When a solid loses the history of the original parts from which it was created, the original parts can no longer be selected and modified. BREP also removes surface associativity. When a surface loses associativity it loses any mathematical expressions or information about how the surface was created.
set SHOWHIST to 1 or 2 to see the objects, and BREP to clean up.
hope it helps.
