Purge CAD


Removing Autodesk® AutoCAD® imports from an Autodesk® Revit® file is a frustrating procedure. Whether these files are imported or linked, you must use different methods to remove them and if they are pinned or embedded in the model you have more works to do.


This task is necessary when you are about to deliver your project at the end of the deadline and you are in a hurry!


When your project is at the final stage and you want to purge all the linked or imported AutoCAD files, just click on the Purge CAD icon in our plugin and then Voila! All your linked or imported CAD files will be deleted whether they were pinned to your view or not and your project is clean from all the AutoCAD files.

  • Does it delete import line types also from the project
    Kunal Wadhera | February 23, 2024 Verified Download (What's this?)

    As the title suggests i want to know whether the plugin deletes the line styles as well which are coming from the linked/imported file?

    Nicholas Morabito | June 03, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It appears to delete all imports at once and you cannot choose but other than that, it works great!

  • Useful and great potential
    Eric White | November 19, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is a very easy to use and simple tool. It would be nice to see a drop down list and choose which CAD files get purged. Depending on each project, you may want to keep certain CAD files for construction documents, coordination, etc, while getting rid of the old or hard to find CAD files in the model. Great for a free tool!

  • A real life saver!

    M Mehdi Nourollah | January 30, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

  • It's really quick!
    Ramin Manafy | January 30, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It's very simple and fast ... and time saving in lack of time... good Job! And the help documentation is perfect! It would be better if you add some other options like showing a list of linked and imported cad files and let the user select it. Good Job!
