How does one purge an AutoCAD Electrical project?
You can use the AutoCAD command Purge. Layers are very important in AutoCAD Electrical, so it is important not to Purge all. ACADe offers a tool that can clean a project with the click of a button.
Under the drop down menu in Projects, there is a command called Project-Wide Utilities. This utility offers many options. I would like to concentrate on the Purge all blocks command.
As you can see, under “For each drawing…” you can select Purge all blocks, the rest can be left as default. This will give you the option to purge all blocks in the Active drawing or the entire project.
If you want to purge as you go, and not at the end of a project, I would suggest that you create your own Icon; it makes it easier then creating a lisp routine. As you can see below this Icon only purges blocks.
Macro = ^C^C-PU;B;*;N;
You can go a step further and purge everything but Layers with the following Macro.
Macro = ^C^C-PU;B;*;N;;D;*;N;;LT;*;N;;M;*;N;;P;*;N;;SH;*;N;;T;*;N;;ST;*;N;
