SmartPurger 3.4 with support for scripting using AutoCAD 2013

SmartPurger 3.4 is now available. SmartPurger is a scripting and batch application for processing many AutoCAD drawings. It’s possible to use the built-in settings to purge and save to different versions as well as execute custom LSP or SCR files on multiple drawings. The possibilities are almost endless. Make changes to title blocks, update layers, add or remove xrefs, prepare drawings for as built or for release to customer, update MicroStation drawings that needs to be fixed and so on. And if you don’t know how to create the custom routines we can help you.

Here are the main news for this release.

Support for AutoCAD 2013 and the new 2013 DWG file format.

AutoCAD apps support. Get SmartPurger on the Plug-Ins Ribbon tab panel using the special bundle download.

Soon to be available also on Autodesk Exchange Apps.

Added support for AutoCAD console mode. SmartPurger can make use of AutoCAD Core Console (this is AutoCAD running in “DOS” mode without any GUI overhead) that was introduced in AutoCAD 2013 making the scripting process faster then ever as the Core Console takes less than a second to open per drawing. In a test using the Core Console took 11 minutes compared to normal AutoCAD 2013 that took 58 minutes to process 145 drawings. This is more than 5 times quicker in this case.

Here is the result after using accoreconsole.exe (AutoCAD Core Console executable).

Thumbnail color can be changed.

As default it is black

but can be change to any other color like white.


Support for purging of Detail view styles and Section view styles that was added to the PURGE command in AutoCAD 2013.

Support for custom Windows DPI settings. If you change to 150% or 200% it should now look good too.

Free trial now allows to script up to 10 drawings. But if you contact us we’ll send a time limited license so you can run SmartPurger without this 10 drawing limitation.

Existing customers get this update for free.

Now, stop all manual boring drawing processing and let SmartPurger to the work for you.
