The Compress option allows you to compress, or flatten your partfile. This function removes all overlapping and duplicate entities. This creates a true 2D drawing from a modelized layout.
NOTE: This feature only works on edges and wires.
How Compress Works:
Compress works in either Model Mode or Layout Mode. You can use Compress to prepare a file for export to a two dimensional system using DXF or IGES, or simply to reduce its size if you want to archive a particular view or layout.
How Remove Duplicates Works:
The Remove Duplicates option allows you to remove duplicate entities from your drawing for better plotting and editing. Unlike the compress option, it does not completely flatten your file, but merely removes overlapping entities that may overprint.
