I need to remove small lines and circles from big mi files which represent very big machines (over 600 metres long). I do not need these small elements up to 200 mm, which are not readable on a print (because of the scale 1:300, they are less than 1 mm long), and which make that the files are so big (up to 1.5 Gbytes uncompressed).
The command CLEAN_DRAWING CLEAN_DUPLICATE_GEOMETRY is somewhat useful but it is not really done for my need. Is that possible that PTC creates a new parameter for CLEAN_DRAWING, something like that :
This new parameter have the following advantages :
- Makes files really smaller and response time shorter (Load, store, print, ...).
- Makes print more readable.
- Remove detailed information from the drawings your are sending to other companies, it is more difficult to have your know how copied by ill-disposed persons.
I think that is it easy to make a new parameter to CLEAN_DRAWING, taking CLEAN_DUPLICATE_GEOMETRY as a base and removing the duplicate geometry function, keeping only the part which removes the elements smaller than the given tolerance.
