Master Purger

Master Purger

Hippo BIM



This serves as an all-purpose tool for analyzing and removing

  • unplaced views (floor plans, ceiling plans, sections, elevations, 3d views, drafting views)
  • legends
  • schedules
  • imported/linked CAD files
  • Unplaced Rooms
  • Unplaced Spaces


This tool also holds a new feature: Dimension Analysis, which analyzes all the dimensions present in the project. This Dimension Analysis will give an overview idea of all the dimensions that will be removed/lost after purging specific CAD files. Based on this result, the user can make a decision to purge the CAD file.

    Pros: This App Works good. the Main Good thing is Not deleting the Parent views even that is not in sheet. 

    Cons: Not Deleting Unused Structural Plans & Area Plans. Please Update the Master Purge to delete.

    This is really a complete package for cleaning up the files. Dimension Analysis and CAD features are , without argumnet, a great job. 

  • Great great job!
    Michel Remy | September 12, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It will be very usefull to add more elements to purge, like families, materials, filters... if it's possible of course.

    One other detail: the horizontal scrolling is boring. It would be better with possibility to stretch the result window.

    Thanks a lot for this great job!

  • Add more features
    Latha Gopalakrishnan | August 11, 2017

    Good App. Since the name is Purger, it would be a better if more features are added such as purging the dwg files, imported items, links. Also, some settings to pre-lock the required CAD files,imported items etc.
