Try the "overkill" command 1st.

The pdf convert is like raster to vector it will make thousands of little tiny lines for stuff like text where it is not saved as text in the pdf. Line work not quite square will be lots of little segments.

 

Reduce your pdf area remake a  pdf, zoom in etc to remove as much as possible of stuff you don't want. May take a couple of go's.

 

Sometimes trace over top of pdf is quicker, same problem with raster.

While cool lisp but why not just run the purge command without running a lisp?

What are your computer specs?

What program did you use to convert the pdf?

What is the dwg file size after you converted the pdf?

 

I agree with BIGAL. The problem is probably the sheer number of individual line segments created by the pdf conversion. A better approach would be to attach the pdf and then trace over it.

ALWAYS this. Even if the PDF is very clean and simple.
