Sometimes when you're working with a *.dwg file that has alot going on, or has been in a design phase for quite some time, you will notice that the *.dwg performance starts to degrade over time.
Here's a tip to get back some of your drawing performance. Always save a copy of any production drawings before trying any maintenance activities on them.
- Run a livedb command, and create a new database, and click the create table button. Save the database to the same location where your drawing is saved.
Close the drawing.
Re-open the drawing. You should see a dialog that shows CADWorx is inserting those piping components into the db you created.
Run the DBFGEN command. Wait for the dialog to finish.
Open up a blank drawing.
Connect to the same *.prj that you built your drawing components from.
Run the DBFIN command.
Path to the same database file you created in Step 1. The dialog will open up with a list of drawings that are currently in the database. Pick the drawing you want to recreate.
