I was drawing isometric dwgs and the file keep pn getting bigger and eventually it became 78,000KB for an iso. Is there a way to reduce the size beside exporting dxf file. Normally an iso should be average a few hundred KB only. Hope someone can help. Thanks
Also look for excessive named layer filters and regapps. These things can bloat a drawing quickly.
Use the FILTERS command (if 2006 or later) to get rid of named layer filters.
And use the command line version of purge (-PURGE) to purge regapps.

If you have trouble purging some of your layers try looking under EXPRESS, then LAYERS and finally, LAYER DELETE. Works great on those stubborn layers that just refuse to go away.

I use 2006, but I think the express tools were incorporated into 2007. The express tool's name in 2006 is "Laydel". Try that at the command line.
You could also to wblock everything, i.e.select "all"; that usually reduces the file size.

I had tried attaching into new files and then bind, insert, explode, purge and save it..... Course... the information must be in the "model space". This works prefectly
