    Евгений Шалыгин | May 28, 2024 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Hello!

    Your program does not purge zero-length geometry and empty text object. 

    The standart _Purge command removes zero-length geometry and empty text object.

    Are you planning to add this feature to your program?

     

    For example, I have dwg file size is 670kb.

    After the standard _Purge, the file size is 170kb.

    After your Drawing Purge - 570kb.

    There are about 14,000 empty text object in the file. Your program does not delete them.

    If possible, please add this feature to your program.

     

    Thank you.

     

    Ajilal Vijayan (Publisher) | June 05, 2024

    Thanks for the review. No, unfortunately I am not planning to add this in Drawing purge. This was added in old versions, and removed later due to unexpected results.

  • Install Update
    Bob Blanchard | April 11, 2024 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I previously posted that I could not install, if anyone runs into issue as such, Right Click the MSI file and check UNBLOCK

    Bob Blanchard | April 12, 2024

    All I can say after using this is WOW! Very Nice, Thank you for the contribution and such good work. This app save me a lot of steps of doing by hand. Also Ajilalv, you should add Adding Check mark to "UNBLOCK" msi for other users whom might run into issue I was originally having. Once downloaded Right click file check UNBLOCK and apply, double click to install. Easy Peazy! :)

    Ajilal Vijayan (Publisher) | May 16, 2024

    Dear Bob, thanks for the review. I guess "UNBLOCK" is a windows security feature, which added to msi/exe files while you download them. I am not sure about whether I will be able to undo this. Also thanks for posting this here, as this will help other users.

    Bob Blanchard | May 17, 2024

    You are welcome and thank you for sharing such a great utility, saves a lot of typing. :) Yes definitely I only ever know that MSI's have to be unblocked to run, not sure why Microsoft does that and not so much for exe's. Yours is not the only time I have run into same issue, I just had to think about and remembered that unblocking would work. Once again great work and thank you!

  • How Apps should App
    Justin Shields | December 15, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is my favorite app to use on the daily. If you need purging done to the next level, this is your app. I don't need to use my scripts any longer to purge and audit, this app does it and does it better. The batch purge is a game changer for cleaning up backgrounds we get from clients. Great job with this app Mr. Vijayan!

  • Should operate on closed drawings, not open
    James Maeding | August 24, 2022

    I've written dwg appid cleaners for years, and trying to purge app ids on "open" drawing will lock you up when there are a lot (50k...). The better way is top open the drawing as "dbx doc" which is something programmers do. Its not hard. The author should allow you to pick drawings not open, rather than operate on current dwg. Its 10x faster and super stable.

    Ajilal Vijayan (Publisher) | August 25, 2022

    Dear James, Thanks for the review. There are two commands for this plugin, please try 'DWG-PURGE-BATCH' command.

    James Maeding | August 26, 2022

    Oh, I totally missed that and then saw right after commenting but could not edit my reply :) I'm, going to try this plugin. I'm the author of the File Batcher which is known as PurgeIDs. Its done in .net. One thing I have found is this file cleaning is only the last step to solving the app id contamination issue. You need to first see what items are in the files/xrefs, then you know where the app ids are coming from. Then you clean them, or just the dirty ones. So some interface to show file props before the cleaning is necessary IMO. Also, I don't let my tool clean files open in current editor, when you hit the app id issue, like 50k or more, it hangs forever while dbx style cleans in seconds. thx

  • Problem with huge file sizes
    Stefano Durat | April 02, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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 (Publisher) | April 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.

    Nicholas De Steiguer | September 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 (Publisher) | September 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.

    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 (Publisher) | October 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

    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

    Hello, I have a warm greeting, I have revoked your application and it works excellent in autocad 2014, but since I can not install 2016 and 2017, maybe I'm doing something wrong, downloading the link and executing it, now I'm doing it right . I asked the application installed in all versions instantly or there to route it to be so I tried to load through customize, and although I load the icons when invoking them does not recognize them ...! That's why I come to you to see that it could be happening in this respect ...? Waiting for your answer Attentively Felix

    Dear Eddy, Can you please try with the new version 7.0 to check whether this error still exists ?


  • In the right direction
    Vassilis Kyriacopoulos | February 15, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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

    At first I was having issues with this when it would hang up on 1 drawing in a group which was really frustrating. We use 2017 ACADE. After trouble shooting with Ajilal Vijayan over a period of time, the newer version works really well and saved me a large amount of time.


  • Unintended Results when used in Previous Versions of AutoCAD

    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.
