To avoid big files is n't it possible to make exel datasheets with material
and/or/not colours
like you choose threads, choose materials.

There is a macro to "purge" your file of unused colors and materials after
you are done with it. I'll see if I can find it if you want it...

I do that fairly quickly through the organizer. Just select all the
materials and delete. It deletes all the unused materials and warns you
that the current material(s) and default can't be deleted.

Repeat for colours and sheet metal styles.

Generally the reduction in drawing size is too small to make it
worthwhile so I only do it for iParts.
