Noticed duplicate entities when deleting an object, and i had to delete it 3 times to get it to go away. I did a mass props and told me its 3 times the weight it should be. How do i delete duplicate objects in an assembly drawing?
How did they get in there in the first place?
Bet it was some sort of linear pattern.

Don't delete from the drawing view, remove them or suppress them from the assembly.
I didnt do any of the commands you suggested that may have caused it.
I have no idea how it happened, there is just 3 of everything, on top of each other.
Moving forward....Is there a command that can remove duplicate entities or stacked entities?
If you don't need them, just remove them from your assembly.
So there is no command for this.
I was hoping for something comparable to the OVERKILL command in Autocad.

David, can you show us what you mean by duplicate objects? Give us a screenshot
Seems to me you are talking about a sketch?
DXF import of sketches can duplicate/overlap lines and arcs.
Would sketch's affect mass properties. Also if he could do a screen shot to show them I don't think he would be asking a question.
I think he did something like was said before a Copy with mates or did a linear pattern. I have had that problem when I did a linear pattern. A real bear to find since you cannot see it.
Sorry, scratch my response. I was ready the question and thinking of something else at the same time.
