Converting Third Party dwgs to small size xrefs
« on: July 16, 2005, 06:10:26 AM »
We get at lot of drawings from Third Parties we use as xrefs. Most of them the come from Architect’s or Constructors, we clean up the dwg and hang under our drawings and design our HVAC installations. Since the drawing come from different parties, we never know what they content.  (Unwanted 3d stuff, Fonts and so on)

But we want to have them as “light” as possible, set all entities to colour 8 and get all the fancy TrueType Fonts, that slow down us, out of it.

I hate to reinvent the wheel, so does anybody have a lisp from where I can go further?

The big plan is that I also create a Document-managing  Excel sheet with all the dates of the  incoming dwgs and information out of their Tileblocks.
Thanks in Advance,
