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). :geek:

Hopefully this will satisfy my curiosity. Thanks! :D

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." :(

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. ;)

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.

Just do as I said and export the drawing to DXF format, then open the DXF file in Notepad. You can see it clearly.

 

Here is a screenshot.

Lan: Since the drawing contains nothing of value why are you even concerned?

Hi Remark, Actually there were objects present before. I noticed that why does the file is heavy whereas there are only around 1000 objects. So I made the file empty

on my curiosity to find which causes the file huge.:roll:

I think you should have provided the original (full) drawing instead of an empty drawing.

Where did the drawing originate from?

 

What program was the drawing created with?

 

Did you "borrow" any content from any other drawing and insert it into this drawing?

 

Do you regularly clean up your drawings using such commands as Overkill, -Purge, Audit and WBlock?
