Clean, optimize and reduce current drawing and its xreferences dwg files.

General Usage Instructions

Open any drawing, then type in the command line DWGCOMPRESSORPALETTE

In the palette that opens, you can see your file hierarchy and sizes.

Next to the file, there is a solid color indicator:

A red solid indicates a weighted file size.

An orange solid indicates an intermediate file size.

A green solid indicates an ideal file size.

When the user presses the Compress button, all files in the hierarchy become subject to compression.

The current drawings close, are rewritten, and then reopen immediately with the compressed master drawing.

Additional Information

Known Issues

DWG Compressor PRO is crafted to reconstruct files, retaining solely the native data and excluding any foreign elements. In simpler terms, not all files can derive benefits from the application; only those containing some degree of foreign data can benefit. These foreign data elements can account for up to over 90% of the file, which we guarantee to eliminate.
