assembly cut

Hello,

 

Is there a way to suspend (or speed-up) assembly cut updates?

Everytime I try to update an assembly with an assembly cut in it, it takes forever.

 

I have cut a lot of solid (around 500) in this one and everytime I want to make a change, it takes around 20 minutes to update!

 

Thank you for your reply

Could you just suppress the Assembly Cut feature until you've completed all of your updates?

Yes I could do that unless I have to update the tool used to do my assembly cut.

 

I was just wondering if there was a setting that can speed-up the update process.

I just saved the parts and it took 6-7 minutes...

Hi @EricFerland

 

Can you send me a picture of your feature tree?

I bet you have multiple assembly cuts in your tree correct? I would try to group these into as little as possible. You can choose multiple tools and targets when using an assembly cut.

You have to be careful here, because an assembly cut does a promote body inside it. When you have tons of promoted bodies, you are looking at some serious performance issues.

Just place a picture of your entire feature tree in a post, not the geometry itself.

Cheers

Philip

hey Philip,

 

thanks for the hint, but I already group both assembly cut into one.

The thing is that I have almost 300 solids to cut, I guess that is the problem.
