How to get rid of those Overlapping lines/Duplicates in Autocad? -OVERKILL

A drawing file can have overlapping lines for many reasons:

1. Drafting errors leading to overlapping lines

2. A drawing exported from a 3D based application into Autocad

3. Drawings exchanged between consultants who will add their own lines

Whatever is the reason, we want to eliminate one of the lines & retain other, else it will be double printing & give wrong line thickness.

Command ÖVERKILL” is the tool to do this. If you din’t know this command, you would be using the tedious method of finding & deleting these overlapped lines.

Select the objects with overlapped lines, set the options to delete the duplicate objects & check the dwg.
