    Duplicate Items

    Im in need of some help, I have a big problem with duplicate items on my current project. I have over 4000 identical instances in the same place this was 5000 last week but I manage to delete 800 gridlines on a building with just 32!!!
    Do you know of a way to delete duplicates in bulk? You can go into the warnings and do them individually but obviously this would take far too long. The danger I see is we could end up deleting something that is tagged on a drawing. Do you have any suggestions on how to deal with this many duplicates?

    I made the Dynamo per the instructions in the video and it worked rather well. There may be more efficient ways to do it, but it does work.

      I would do some digging to figure out why you have so many duplicate items. Someone screwed up :hide:

          I would find the time even if its your lunchtime. If its a workshared project, using the worksets display function you can read who created the duplicates.
          Then you can have whoever created so many duplicates to do the overtime to fix it. No better way to learn from your mistakes than to have to clean them up. Unless you dont mind these types of things happening again and again. :thumbsup:
