Khoshravan, please post your non Autocad questions about the forum in the Feedback section. This is the third question I've moved today.

 

I'm not sure what a .wdg file is, but the size limit for .dwg files is 250kb.

You can also upload it as a zip file if needed. :thumbsup:

Yes, there are size limitations based on file type.

On that matter, why limit .dwg files to 250kb these days? A limit of 5mb is more realistic for 2011 and bandwidth/storage is extremely cheap today compared to that of 10 years ago.

I think the problem is with CT's server limitation for accepting the uploaded files.:(

 

I see my old files which I have uploaded in the past and I don't need them to be there anymore, still sits in CT's server.:?

 

But I have a suggestion,

 

I think it should be better to set a time limit for uploaded files, to be deleted after a month or so or put an option whether the author wants the files to be kept or allowed to be deleted after a period of time.

 

In this way the burden on CT server will decrease and they can save resources:)

 

What other members think about?

There is no problem in increasing the upload limit. I haven't reviewed this for a while and it's probably due for an update, so I'll take a look at it.

 

There is no facility within vBulletin to place a time limit on attachments but it would be a useful feature.

OK, I've reviewed the file attachments situation and the new settings are given below. I have increased most of the max file sizes and have added a lot more formats, specifically for Revit, Inventor, Microstation and SketchUp and some others. Any formats not covered can be zipped.

Thanks for the update. This really helps especially in the DWG format. While your at it though, could the GIF file sized be increased to min 512k. This would really help since GIF animations are hard to get under 500k with any useful length.

 

Thanks Again.
