  • New Error?
    Nicholas De Steiguer | settembre 15, 2018

    Very nice tool, have been using for a long time. However I am getting a new error recently in the Status field of the progress window: "Error: INDEXCTL must be Zero". About 20% of my files are skipped due to this error. Any ideas?


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | settembre 18, 2018

    This error is due to the restriction in the code to ignore the drawings with INDEXCTL system variable value other than Zero(0). When I was testing the app, I have noticed that if INDEXCTL is not zero, then sometimes the batch process crashed/failed. I have added an option to ignore this error in the new version of the app (version 8.2.0).Please install the latest version and on the 'About' page, there is an option turn off this error checking.

    Press "ALT TAB" and switch to the program (you wont see it) Press "ALT SPACE" (you wont see anything) Press "R" (You wont see anything) Press "ALT SPACE" again, followed by "M" Press the ARROW keys to initiate the movement. Now use your mouse to move the window into place. Works with any window off the AutoCAD screen

  • xref lines not purged in purge batch
    Alex Holzmann | dicembre 20, 2017 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Dear Ajin First of all thank you so much for this program we are having serious problems with the dgn linetypes. Our drawings are full with linetypes e.g. XREF_00$0$_19_A_B…_R00$0${ Tapered Dash } we can eliminate them with dxf and audit or using purge in autocad 2015 I was really happy to find batch purge because we are having a couple of hundred of those files which are out of control, so far batch purge is reducing the file size but not eliminating thoese linetypes is there anything we are doing wrong? Would really appreciate some help about that. lg alex


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | gennaio 07, 2018

    Alex,Thanks for sharing the drawings by email for testing.As I mentioned in the email, the files that you have shared is purging as expected in my system. I am not able to figure out why its not working on your system. I would suggest you to try these files in 2016 or later version.

    Kent Keplinger | novembre 28, 2017 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    There is one or two files during batch purging that are corrupted during the process (civil3d 2016). The files are even locked so you can't even delete the file without involving server admin. If this issue is fixed would easily be a 5 star!!

    Daniel Silva | ottobre 10, 2017 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Eu utilizava a versão 6.3 e o usar o "purge-Batch" funcionava porém não explodia os blocos que estavam em uso no desenho atual, porém com essa nova versão v7.0 o aplicativo explode o bloco em uso. isto não pode acontecer, pois o aplicativo "Drawing Purge" nao pode interferir no desenho atual e também nao pode mudar as características do desenho corrente. por este motivo tive que voltar para a versão 6.3 para continuar usando em perfeitas condições. De qualquer forma, todos os desenvolvedores estão de parabéns. deixo posto meus agradecimentos. Daniel Silva / Brasil / RJ / Duque de Caxias.


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | ottobre 11, 2017

    Querido Daniel, Eu testei este problema na versão 7 e não aconteceu no meu computador. Além disso, os outros usuários não relataram esse erro ainda. Por favor, verifique isso novamente e, se possível, compartilhe qualquer arquivo de vídeo ou desenho para explicar isso. Obrigado


    Daniel Silva | ottobre 19, 2017

    Prezado Sr. Ajila Vijayan, o que aconteceu é que, ao utilizar o "dwg-purge" ou "dwg-purge-batch" em um determinado desenho, no meu entendimento, estava explodindo o "bloco corrente", porém, o que estava acontecendo e que o bloco em questão não era um bloco, era um desenho agrupado "group", e por padrão o seu programa "Drawing Purge" desfaz todo o conjunto de desenho que esta em "group" e transforma-o em desenho simples. Então, o que eu fiz, entrei nas configurações do seu programa, e desmarquei a opção "Empty Group", com isso consegui aplicar o comando "dwg-purge / dwg-purge-batch" sem afetar o desenho corrente, ou seja, sem afetar a estrutura do desenho que eu estava trabalhando. Muito obrigado pela sua resposta, e dou 5 ESTRELAS para seu programa. Me desculpe pelo embaraço. voltarei para a versão atual. :D

    I just have tried v6.3.0.0 on ACAD 2017x64 in a project folder of 94 Files. Total folders size has been reducted from 187mb to 76.5mb without any look strange on the drawings on the first impression and with most of the used drawings been purged frequently. Seems promising, so keep up the good work!

    Update Fixed: Houston we have a problem. Suddenly on day the DWG-PURGE-BATCH plugin decided to stop showing up it self anymore! I Have uninstalled an re-installed AjilalVijayanDrawingPurge700.msi again -still not working, took the hard decision to reset the AutoCAD 2018 interface -still not working, i m really not shure if Uninstalling AutoCAD will work out. DWG-PURGE command works perfectly as it should but when i type the DWG-PURGE-BACH command it loads it self and displays the taskbar icon next to AutoCAD, but the main window is not visible and the only think i can do its press escape to continue working. Please HELP! - Fixed

    Mark Potratz | dicembre 05, 2016 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    When we ran a Batch Purge with this App on a drawing directory in AutoCAD 2013 and AutoCAD 2016 using the Select Folder option in Drawing Purge version 6.1.0.0 all of our Block Attributes done in Mtext were shifted randomly out of place and our title blocks looked awful. In AutoCAD 2017 it appears the Mtext block attributes stay in place.

    Add on is very helpful. But quick question, on your previous 2015 add on, it had the flatten command, which was awesome- removed all the bold text and what not while purging the drawing. In this 2017 add on, it doesn't work anymore- any chance it can be added back on for 2017?


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | settembre 25, 2016

    Dear kaye, thanks for the review. In the new version I removed 'Empty texts' and 'Zero length geometry' options as these two options sometimes caused the app to fail while purging. If you are mentioning these options, I will try to add it back in the next version.

  • May corrupt purged files, crashes with fatal error
    Kevin L | giugno 06, 2016 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    While I love the program and what it is capable of, there are still serious bugs and stability issues that need to be worked out that prevent me from adopting it to use full time: 1) Sometimes DWG-PURGE-BATCH will hang on a single file (stuck at Saving...) indefinitely. When attempting to restart the purge, the file originally being saved with be corrupted with a 0kb dummy file that would be marked Read Only. This is extremely dangerous - it seems to happen to random files, including original client CAD drawings that are sensitive and cannot be replaced. Drawing Purge does not create a failsafe or temporary backup in the event of a failed purge, and it is a pretty big oversight. I would not use a program that has a chance to corrupt the original drawings without warning. 2) I have gotten "err00: The calling thread must be STA, because many UI components require this." error multiple times. It seems to be a .NET framework problem, and this error also leads to file corruption similar to 1). 3) When closing AutoCAD after using Drawing Purge, a "FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x0037 Exception at e9c24084h" occurs after every time of using Drawing Purge.

    This app has saved me a load of frustration. My Company use Acad14 save in Acad13 (and below) format, have Acad15 (but cant use it because of our clients) so I have to use it in MEP where it works well. It is worth mentioning that a normal Purge after using DGN Purge will clear the errant linetypes. Saves massive amounts of File Space. I just wish I could stop others in my company from being lazy and copying previous drawings as templates.

    Thank you for the nice application. And I need more functionality. The Batch processing has options which items to purge, but the DWG-PURGE command doesn't ask any question, doesn't have any options and purges everything. But I strongly need to keep my layers created manually, I don't want to re-create them again. This requirement can relate to other elements, that should not be purged. Could you please add options to the command? Or create another command DWG-PURGE-OPT.


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | ottobre 02, 2015

    Hi Evgeny, Thanks for the review.The options(which items needs to purge) you set in Batch purge applies to both Purge and Batch purge commands. In other words Dwg-Purge will only purge the items that you have selected in the Batch processing options.So at this stage, you have to untick the layer or other items that you don't want to purge and then run Dwg-Purge command.In the next version I will try to add the options in Dwg-Purge also. Thanks for your suggestion.

    Hi Evgeny,Now with the latest version [Version 6.0] you will have individual settings for Dwg-Purge and Batch Purge.

    I used the batch purge to try and recover corrupted .dwg files, they can not be opened and the recover command does not work on them either. Since the files can not be opened I wanted to try this app to purge the files without opening them. But after clicking the Purge button, the batch purge window shows a BadDwgHeader in the Status column and nothing else happens. Any idea what this means and how to correct the problem with the drawing files?

    Hi Mark, Thanks for the review.When you click the Batch Purge button, the program basically opens the drawing in the background without loading to the drawing window.So I have to check how this method can be used to open the corrupted drawing.If possible I will try to fix this in the next version.

    Hi Goel, The latest version of this app is now available. Your two suggestions are now added to the this version (5.0). Instead of right click on the name to open the explorer, you can double click on the file name to open the explorer and CSV export option is in the right click menu.

    I am getting an error message "eCannotBeErasedByCaller" It prompts me to wait but nothing happens.


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | giugno 18, 2015

    Hi Francis, Thanks for the review. Is that error happens to all the drawings or any particular one ? If this happens to any particular file,is it possible to share the drawing with me ? My email is ajilalv@gmail.com


    Francis Antao | giugno 18, 2015

    Hi Ajilal, thank you for your reply. This happens to some drawings only. Overall its a great utility. Lifesaving. We have spent lot of time on Autodesk's "dgnpurge" utility. You deserve a big credit. I will send you the drawing.

    Is there any way you can add an option to retain the initial file date? If possible this plugin would be perfect. Thank you very much for addressing the date issue, this plugin is extremely useful and indeed perfect for our firm.


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | giugno 15, 2015

    Hi Jason, Thanks for the review. This option is possible and I will add this in the next version.


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | luglio 06, 2015

    Hi Jason, The latest version of this app (5.0) is now available and your suggestion to retain the modified date is added to this version, this option you can find in the 'Options' tab of the app.

  • Great App, wish there was an LT Version
    Kevin Eliseo | maggio 07, 2015 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    I used to use this when I had the full version of AutoCAD and it was great! Now my office uses LT. Any chance the program will be updated to run on LT anytime soon?


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | maggio 10, 2015

    Hi Kevin, Thanks for the review. Unfortunately LT does not support NETLOAD command, so this app will not work with LT. If you are using AutoCAD LT 2015 or later version there should be an enhanced version of purge command, please try that.

    This Add In is one of THE life savers. Specially if you have all DWG in a project contaminated with weed line styles from microstation. Just a question. Would it be easy to add the option to Copy/Paste the folder path rather than navigating through all network to select it? Many thanks.

    Hi Joaquim, Thanks for the review. Yes, this option is possible and I will add in the next version.

    Murray Clack | gennaio 06, 2015 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    VERY impressed. I use Civil 3D, and it seemed that no matter how well we managed the data of our projects, or how small the file, the drawings would be slow to open, edit, regen, plot, save, etc. Once I started using this app - even if there were no DGN elements present - it sped up my drawings and increased the data processing exponentially!


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | giugno 25, 2015

    Hi Murray Clack, Thanks for this review. And also thanks for the review in AUGI Newsletter, June. I am glad to hear that you liked this app and helped you. There is a new version(5.0) will be released soon(currently reviewed by Autodesk) with some additional features.

    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | novembre 19, 2014

    Thanks for the review Jignesh. In case you did not noticed, there is a dialogue box, where you can select/unselect what should purge in both DWG-PURGE and DWG-PURGE-BATCH command. After entering DWG-PURGE-BATCH command click on 'Items to purge' and select/unselect the items to purge.


  • GREAT Application

    Ajilal, This app has helped me in so many situations. It purges what I want it to purge in such a simple manner. I understand that purging DGN (orphaned) data is built in to 2015, but the combination of items purged would still be helpful if this app was made to work with 2015. Thank you for putting this app together and sharing it with everyone. By the amount of high ratings from other users and their responses it is evident that it would be popular for future releases. Thanks ~Greg


    Ajilal Vijayan (Autore) | agosto 07, 2014

    Greg, Thanks for the review. Glad to hear that its helped you. The new version is in progress with new features and support for 2015. Will be released as soon as possible.
