AutoCAD Junk
by: Anonymous

You may have AutoCAD junk objects located on the far outskirts of your drawing.

When you ZOOM EXTENTS if you don't see your drawing, it's possible there could be an object, as small as a point, located somewhere far away from your main work.

I think if you zoom way out and then look for tiny objects, you may find this junk when you zoom in tighter.

Just erase the junk entities and then try zoom extents again. If you still can't see your work, you may have more lost entities.

Repeat the process until you get rid of everything outside your drawing.
