In this video, Shaun Bryant shows how to remove and purge any remaining unwanted properties.
- [Instructor] We're staying in our 03…Office Reception Area drawing,…and last but not least, we're going to look at removing…any properties that we don't want in our CAD drawing.…Again, optimizing, rationalizing, making everything simple…before we take the CAD drawing into Revit itself.…So I'm just going to double click on the wheel there…to Zoom Extent, so I've left the drawing in the same state…as it was at the end of the last video.…So let's just double click on the wheel,…so that we can see everything like so.…Now, what we need to think about is removing…all of the elements and properties we don't want.…
So the quickest way to do that is to use PURGE, like so.…So I'll just type purge and press ENTER,…and you'll see there that there are…Dimension Styles that I don't need.…There are Layers that I don't need.…There are Multileader Styles that I don't need.…And there's also Text styles that I don't need,…you'll notice there as well.…Now, all of these little elements and things…make the drawing bigger, for one, the file size bigger,…
