After exporting some simple geometry from a file, the resulting export was 20+MB. ‘Audit 3DM File’ showed that there was a 10MB jpg lurking in the file and another 10 MB of user table info from an unnamed plug-in.
I used ‘TestPurgeBitmapTable’ to remove the jpg and carried out -SaveAs with ‘savePlugInData=No’ and got the file down to 80kb.
I’m hoping the bitmap purge will make it into V6, but also a command to purge unnamed PlugIn data without having to save as to another filename then save back again to overwrite the original.
I tried to SavaAs with the same filename, with the ‘savePlugInData=No’ yet the data remained in the overwritten file.
The 20 megs just keeps coming back when geometry is pasted back and forth over several files. Never noticed before as they are large files.
