Project Description

How is Duplicate Element Remover going to help you?

  • Duplicate Element Remover gives you exact control over which design files get processed. (Any set of design files — for example, *.dgn — can be processed with a single command.)
  • Which levels to remove duplicates from. (Maybe you have some levels on which duplicate elements are allowed.)

  • Which element types, weights and styles should be considered for removal.
  • Whether or not to compare against elements in reference files.

We’re not exaggerating when we say we’ve changed our customers’ lives for the better. Our customers no longer have the mind-numbing frustration that used to happen nearly every time they had tried to import Excel or Word data into their AutoCAD and MicroStation files. They no longer spend time futzing with poor formatting, text that can’t be easily manipulated, pastes that won’t fit, links that don’t work reliably and missing data.

Duplicate Element Remover and You

Duplicate Element Remover puts you in control over how closely elements have to match before they are considered duplicates. For example, what if two elements are identical, but are on different levels? What if two elements differ only in color? Or weight? Duplicate Element Remover gives you precise control over such criteria.

Duplicate Element Remover can also generate a text report file that lists each design file processed and the EdG element number of each duplicate. You can generate one text report file for the entire job or a separate text report file for each design file processed.

For each design file processed, Duplicate Element Remover can generate a graphical report design file showing only the unwanted, duplicate elements. The report design file has the same name as the original design file, but an extension of .drf (design report file).
