    Does anyone know the answer to this? I can't upload a 6.86KB ZIP file. The AD.PKG file is 7.86KB

    TIA

    OOPS. make those KBs, MBs.

    Admin Edit: Answer is 10MB.

    Isn't there a limit noted in the warning message you get from the upload? I seem to recall it would give that info.

    Hi Harold. I'll go back and look again. I hadn't noticed anything other than the filesize was too large to upload. This might be the first time
    I've encountered this error. It could very well have had more info back in the day.

    Thanks Seb. I'll try paring it down a little and see if it goes.

    There is the trick of rolling the parts dog bone all the way to the top before saving - which makes the file size smaller.

    Is there not a ban on zip files? Many sites do not allow uploads of them, due to malware issues.

    You can click Upload a File and see what is allowed. IFAIK there has never been any malware on this site and admins and mods would take it down if any was found.

    Max, what about AD_GLP ? AD_PCF?

    Would CSV etc have to be zipped, or have extension changed to TXT for upload?

    Admin Edit - see above, recently changed.

    Thanks!
    I had file size loading problem earlier w/ manipulated IGES surface scans. 10mb would have prevented that issue
