Huge picture weight when exporting from SW drawing to .DWG format

Question asked by Ibrahim Ch on Oct 9, 2018


I have to export many drawings from SW to Rhinoceros via .dwg format.


My drawings include many pictures (photos for assembly instructions). When I export to .dwg, all these pictures are saved separately from the new .dwg and each one of them is around 10 to 20Mo. The .dwg is 7,5Mo. Total 300Mo.

When opening the .dwg and saving it to rhinoceros format (.3dm), this time I only have 1 file but around 300Mo.

What can I do to avoid generating those very heavy pictures while exporting ?(already tried to change many parameters in SW)
