My file was 550MB and then i purged them and it reduced to 450 MB...
I am making a 3D Project..
I am not able to upload the file as it is too big so i give you a little detail what i drew..
There are 3 meters long 5 fence panels and there i worked on details of the ornaments and put materials on them.. There is a solid base with an image and i am using sun properties with lights etc...
i cannot render the file as it gives me an error.. i am not able to work on the file now as it is gigantic size..
i am using autocad 2014 and my pc specs are..
Intel i7..
6GB Ram
64MB VGA
What i am doing wrong making 3D objects?
Would it reduce the size if i union all the objects or make blocks ?
Please help me

This is the Civil 3D forum - you are probably better off posting in the AutoCAD forum ....... but 450Mb file size....I'm surprised you can do anything with that!!!!!!!

Make a backup copy of your huge file, then perform the powerful _BREP command on the DWG copy: any size changes..?
