Hi all, There is a utility that we are currently using with autocad called 'lfd' (layer filter delete) that dramatically reduces the file size of your drawing. Usually by 80% Is there something similar for revit? cadjockey

nope, the only thing you can do is purge your project of any unwanted families and delete all 3D views you don't really need... .rvt is already compressed AFAIK...

We've noticed that when Revit crashes the recovery file is a lot smaller than the original. There's probably a lot of extra data that even a purge can't get rid of.

With hard drives now going for less than a dollar a GB we simply no longer care. Tom

It usually only becomes an issue for us when we want to transfer the file over the internet.

Revit files are already compressed which you'll notice if you attempted to zip a revit file. There is usually minimal size reduction if any. You can also use the compace central file save option when use a multi-user project for archiving or sending of the web. HTH.
