DWG Explorer 2016

RV Boost



Life is too short for manually purging obscured imported CAD files from you Revit project or family. Set your Revit files free of redundant & corrupted DWGs  today!


With DWG Explorer:

1.    You can instantly get a report of all CAD files in your Revit project or family. These include DWGs as well as any other CAD file types Revit can recognise such as DXFs, DGNs, SKPs or SATs. Each file will show if it is linked or imported, independent or view-specific. A Show button will let you select & see the file in a good view. A Delete button allows removing the file without having to find and select it.


2.    You can see any view-specific CAD file’s parent view & its visibility in that view. This allows quickly deleting a view-specific DWG not currently visible in that view!


3.    You can finally purge linked or imported CAD files by type. A second report will show all CAD file types in the model, each with its number of placed instances. A Delete buttons helps instantly remove obsolete types along with all of its copies!

    Great app. Is there a version for Revit 2014? Some of my projects cannot be upgraded.

    These ghost dwgs had been haunting my model for too long until I found this app. Good job guys!

  • 2015 version please!
    Peter North | June 12, 2017

    Works perfectly with my Revit 2016. Allows deleting dwg types directly from VG & Object Styles.

    Easy & intuitive to use , especially how it allows opening a good view to see a selected dwg from its report. The ability to see if view-specific DWGs are still visible in parent views is great for purging redundant ones.
