Drawing Purge


Compatible with Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2012 to 2022.

Please note that this app will not work with AutoCAD LT version


After installing the app, if the commands are not working please read the Frequently Asked Questions page.

There are 2 commands for this plug-in



To purge the Current Drawing

By entering DWG-PURGE at the command line this plug-in will delete all the DGN unreferenced LineTypes, RegApps, and Annotation Scale.

Also, a dialog box will show with a list of any XRefs attached to the drawing that needs to purge.

By clicking 'Purge' will start to purge the attached XRefs.



To purge multiple drawings without opening the files.

In DWG-PURGE-BATCH you can add the drawings by following methods:

  • By selecting the drawing from the 'Select drawing' button
  • By selecting a folder
  • Copy/Paste a folder path
  • Drag and drop


From this dialog box go to the Options tab for more options.

  • Purge the drawings and save them to a different location.
  • Purge the drawings and add a suffix to the file name e.g:- Mydrawing_purged.dwg.
  • Purge and save the drawing to another version.

  • Extra purge item required?
    Brendon Butler | 十月 26, 2021 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    Hi, I've downloaded this to hopefully not only save time running multiple purge and cleanup commands. But, I was hoping it would also delete redundant Data Links.
    However, it doesn't seem to do this? Can it be modified to do this also?

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 十一月 03, 2021

    Thanks for the review, I will try to add this option in the future release.

    ACAD was constantly lagging hard every time it autosaved or I did the copybase command. I had a ton of unused linetypes that I couldn't delete that seemed to be causing the problem. This little app cleared that up in an instant. Can't thank you enough!

    Drawing purge is a great and seamless add-on. It's quick, simple and easy to understand. For the most part it does the job great. However, I am having issues with purging plot styles, configurations, some shape files and standards that aren't going away when I open a batch of files in a Reference Manager. Not sure what the solution or problem is there.. ?

  • Problem with huge file sizes
    Stefano Durat | 四月 02, 2020 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    dear Ajilal, I am working with AutoCAD LT vers. 2020 on a 2D file in which drawings of machinery/equipments from multiple external suppliers have been inserted.

    Once the blocks were removed, the file exploded at 360 Mb and no longer allows me to copy and export objects to another file. The program starts copying the selected object works for many minutes and then stops so I have to force the closure in order to exit. I have seen that Drawing-purge could solve the problem but unfortunately it is not compatible with AutoCAD LT. Is there an analogous LT compatible plug-in package that can solve my problem? Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 四月 05, 2020

    Stefano, Thanks for the review !! If you doubt whether your drawing contains DGN data which causes the increased file size, then try the steps mentioned in the link under this section >>AutoCAD LT and the DGN Hotfix << [shorturl.at/awLR9]. But please note that if the drawing has exploded blocks or xrefs, AutoCAD purge or Drawing Purge plug-in will not able to purge the entities as it is in use with the drawing.

  • Great and compatible with 2021 !!!!

    Nicholas De Steiguer | 九月 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 (發佈者) | 九月 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.

  • xref lines not purged in purge batch
    Alex Holzmann | 十二月 20, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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 (發佈者) | 一月 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.

    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.

    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 | 十月 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 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.

  • May corrupt purged files, crashes with fatal error
    Kevin | 六月 06, 2016 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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.

    Hello Ajilal, As an Application Specialist for Ideate, Inc., an Autodesk Value Added Reseller, I'm constantly advising our tech support customers to keep their drawings 'clean' by running what I call drawing housekeeping commands; RECOVER, AUDIT, -PU. Your app will be a great help to firms that have problems with propagating Orphaned Data. With your permission, I'd like to reference your App in our blog.

    Ajilal Vijayan, thank you for your app! It is AutoCAD 2017 published. Will you adapted your app for it? And there is one problem with those who have disabled the AutoCAD Infocenter: it is forced to on by your application (to display messages about the availability of purges)

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 四月 04, 2016

    Oleg, Thanks for the review.I will update the app to support 2017.To display the messages for the DGN data availability , you can select Command line or AutoCAD status bar.Please check the Drawing Purge options in Bacth Purge command window.

    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.

    Hello Sir , my question is : if i use this file with any drawing , won't it break my work ? i mean it just reduces the file size or it may delete some work and lines i need ? please explain to me as I'm a beginner not a pro :)

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 一月 31, 2016

    Hi, I would like to suggest you to try this app on some test drawings and check whether the app has deleted any things which you required. You can enable/disable what items you need to purge in the Options tab of Batch command.

  • C3d 2016
    Celia Pinto | 一月 08, 2016

    Hi Does C3d 2016 needs this app? Or it's the same as the purge nested objects? C3d 2016 it is slow and keeps stalling. Thsnks

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 一月 09, 2016

    Hi Celia, From 2015 Version, standard AutoCAD Purge command has the ability to purge DGN data.So to purge the DGN data, you don't need this app. But the Batch purge command will be helpful if you have multiple files to clean.

    Santiago Guerra | 十二月 04, 2015

    Dear Ajilal, I am using Autocad 2016 Student Version, but the app seems not to be working properly with the "items you cannot purge". Previous version cleaned perfectly, but now, blocks remain. I paste and udpate one block, but the block remains as it was in the drawing, not with the new one.

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 一月 09, 2016

    Dear Santiago, Thanks for the review.Can you please share a sample drawing to describe this issue. email: ajilalv@gmail.com

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 一月 14, 2016

    Dear Santiago, Thanks for sending the sample drawing and thanks for the detailed explanation. I understand this issue and I will try to fix this in the next version. It seems that once you delete the nested block, the app needs to run 2-3 times to erase all the unused blocks. I will add a loop in the next version to fix this. Thanks for pointing this out.

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 三月 23, 2016

    Dear Santiago,Please try with the latest version [6.0].Now I have added a loop in the purge program to fix this issue.

    Hi Ansal, Thanks for the review.The app should work with 2016 (not LT). If the commands are showing as unknown command, may be the plug-in is failed to load automatically. Can you please try the steps in the below link to load the app manually ? https://goo.gl/7JMGLR

    Sinan KARAHAN | 十一月 14, 2015

    Dear Ajilal Vijayan Thanks for application but it doesn't work.I m using Autocad 2014(not LT), I configure with dwg purge batch.I selected all items to purge but file size is not decreased.

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 十一月 15, 2015

    Hi Sinan, Thanks for the review.If the file size is not changed, may be there is nothing to purge in that drawing.Can you run the native AutoCAD purge command and see if there anything to purge ? Also if possible please send a sample drawing to ajilalv@gmail.com .

    Evgeny Kurbatov | 十月 01, 2015 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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 (發佈者) | 十月 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.

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 三月 23, 2016

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

    Evgeny Kurbatov | 三月 23, 2016

    Hi Ajilal, Great! Thank you!

    Mark Morton | 九月 28, 2015 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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?

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 九月 30, 2015

    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.

  • Unknown command DWG-PURGE
    Victor Terrones | 九月 16, 2015 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    I downloaded your software to deal with our DGN issues. We are using AutoCAD Architecture 2012, is this software compatible with this version? I installed the x-purge software, I got the installed successfully pop-up, opened Autocad, tried using the commands dwg-purge or dwg-purge-batch, and it states Unknown command "DWG-PURGE". What am I doing wrong?

    Ajilal Vijayan (發佈者) | 九月 18, 2015

    Hi Victor, Thanks for trying Drawing Purge and thanks for the review. Yes, Drawing Purge should work with AutoCAD 2012 series.
