Determine how heavy a block or group is?

I have file of 2D drafting blocks and annotation symbols. It seem a little heavy compared to my AutoCad equivalent file. Is there a way to determine how many kb/mb in a particular group or block?

The Audit3dmFile command will give you a listing of all that detail.
Look in the Block definition and Object definition sections.

Hello - here is a quick python that will give Rhino’s memory estimate in bytes for your object. For blocks it looks at the underlying instance definition geometry , but this is in the file only once, and not per instance, of course.

Object memory (986 Bytes)

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"
