    Delete configuration preview bitmaps

    Jorn Bjarning

      Hi,

       

      SolidWorks saves a preview image for each configuration. For files with many configurations the file size can become huge. Performing af SaveAs to a different file name will strip all these preview images and the result will be a slim file.

       

      I have been looking for an API method to get rid of these preview bitmaps but haven't found one. Does such call exist?

       

      A work around is to do 2 x SaveAs - save it to a temporary name and then back to the original name but that's not elegant :-)

       

      Best regards,

      Jorn
