Hello all,

 

Was wondering if others could share thier tips/ tricks for shrinking file sizes.I have one in particular Which is not working well. It seems there are BIM objects in it, Is there a command to remove some of the "intelligent" features from the file?

 

Or, what would be your usual courese of action to get the file size down?

Hi,

 

>> a command to remove some of the "intelligent" features

_ERASE

 

And additional to Patchy's ones

  • _-PURGE and use the option to purge application-registration items
  • copy&paste objects into a new drawing.
