Life is too short for manually purging CAD files from your Autodesk® Revit® model. With DWG Explorer (renamed to CAD Files Explorer since version 2019):


1.       You can instantly see all CAD files in your Revit project or family. These can be DWGs as well as any other CAD file types Revit accepts such as DXFs, DGNs, SKPs or SATs. Each file will show if it is linked or imported, independent or view-specific. View-dependent CAD files will show if they are still visible in their host views. If not, probably delete them!


2.       You can instantly select & show each CAD file in its host view, delete it, or list all views & sheets where that file is visible. The app can then instantly open each of these views & sheets and zoom to the CAD is for you.


3.       You can directly delete CAD file names that show under VG > Imported Categories which may still be there even after you have removed all their copies from the model. This is also the quickest way to delete multiple copies of the same CAD file from Revit.


4.       You can delete object styles resulted from someone exploding a CAD file in Revit. This will help reduce the negative impact of exploded DWGs on your model performance. These object styles will show clearly in our report as their names follow the format [Original CAD file name].[CAD layer name].


5.         You can quickly scan all loaded families in the project to find nested CAD files at any nesting levels. Your families or project won’t be modified during the scan.

  • Well done
    Tony Torri | novembre 27, 2017 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Will be even better if there can be a list of all views in which a particular dwg is visible.

  • Make managing imported cad files a breeze
    Steve Bennet | novembre 17, 2017 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Didn't have to turn off "live report update" mode as the addin works fast enough even in my biggest models. Still a good bonus feature!

  • still the only one solution - absolutely necessary
    Zoran Potpara | novembre 07, 2017 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    There appeared a DWG in the VV window, that was listed under imported categories, although the model has been completely empty. Now it's gone, that easy! Thanks! So glad I ve heared of DWG Explorer.

  • Versatile app
    Matthew Crossley | novembre 06, 2017

    Got pleasantly surprised that the add-in works with also Revit families & Revit templates, not just with main Revit models.

  • Cool app
    Peter Price | ottobre 24, 2017

    Looks great on my dual monitor setup. Quick support from developers too.

  • Can't live without it now
    Alan Smith | giugno 07, 2017

    One of a few apps I really wish would become native Revit commands. The dynamic feature is nice as I can have the app on my second screen, keep working in Revit on my first one and see how that affects the list of DWGs.

  • Finally, someone heard my wishes!
    Viet Cuong Le | maggio 13, 2017

    Definitely the most intuitive app of this kind I have ever seen. Finally a simple way to take back control & show these DWGs who's really in charge. I could even delete 'ghost' DWG names from VG - Imported Categories directly. Thank you!
