    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello Guys! It's been a long time since my last post in this forum. Kindly please help me to find out which causes my drawing file size very large (around 42 MB).
    Hopefully this will satisfy my curiosity. Thanks!

    I'm using Autocad 2017 and I don't have any luck finding these "RegisteredApplications.Count = 7".
    I already tried -purge>regapps>n but the result is "No unreferenced registered applications found."

    Opened it in BricsCAD, did a saveas (without doing anything else) - and the file size of the new file is 38kb

    Hi Ron, thanks for the LISP file reducer. I'm just curious what are those 7 Registered Applications you found on the file?

    Hi rkmcswain, good to know BricsCAD reduces the file. But I don't have this installed.

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    USE DXFOUT and then look at all of the data in there.
    A boatload of 310 records. Over 385MB in this format.
    You don't need this DWG file. Just start a new empty one. There is literally nothing in this one except this garbage.
    BTW: You can download BricsCAD and try it if you'd like.
