How to reduce file size when import DWG files

Question

Every time I import a DWG file in VW it blows up to 60-150mb which then becomes so slow to navigate.

Is there anything I can do to reduce these files sizes?

Thanks

I actually have the problem in reverse. A recent VW file grew from 40 to 66MB when exporting to dwg.

Anyone know how to reduce the export size to dwg?

Import the dwg into a separate vectorworks file and save it. Then immediately purge it. This will reduce it by 2/3 but it will still probably be bigger than you would like.
