File is too big to manage... How to reduce size?

So a rather simple file of mine went from roughly 200kb to around 15mb.... and I don't know why?  I tried pruge, overkill, audit... to no avail... perhaps someone has some advice on this matter.  It is taking hours to push out the most simple drawings... 

I'm uploading the earlier file (200kb) and the same file a week later  (14mb) for analysis.

Thanks

  • Many thanks, just your upload is missing.

    There are two options for sharing your model files on BE Communities. If you would like the files to be visible to other members, compress the files into a zip file and upload them as an attachment via insert. If your data is confidential, you can follow the instructions in the link below to send it to us via Bentley Sharefile. Files uploaded to Sharefile can only be viewed by Bentley.

    If you upload the model files to Sharefile, please post a message here so we know they are available

  • I'm not sure why, but the file(s) will not upload for me.  I instead am attaching a link to the file in Dropbox.  Please let me know what you think.

    We have resorted to making shop drawings by hand because the file is too large to process drawings in express.

    Thanks.

  • Johannes , 

    can you please tell me what is the export import via PSB process?

    Bernie

  • Hi Bernie,

    We have here a short video which will explain it clearly. in this video it is shown exported from AutoCAD layered platform to Power ProStructures. but you can follow the same procedure, just while importing you need to create a new file in AutoCAD layered platform and then can import to it.

    Hope this will resolve your issue.

  • one can use PSB Export / Import on the same Platform CAD System to clean the drawing up. Just use Export / Import PSB under V8i PowerProstructures as you don´t have AutoCAD.
