I am looking for a way to reduce the size of a large dwg-file, which I use as background in my simulation model. Is there a way to reduce/ optimize the file-size with Plant Simulation? For viewing the dwg-file, I am using Autodesk Trueview.
Thanks in advance!
With best regards,
if you are talking about a 2D dwg,
which I suppose you are, then you cannot reduce the
size ( through Plant Simulation). The reduction of the
triangulation of 3d geometries is possible through Plant Simulation.
I'm not sure, if the dwg data, used as background, isn't converted into a bitmap anyway.
Then the dwg filesize shouldn't have a big impact.
dwg files are indeed converted into bitmaps when they are imported.
Just to be clear, you are using Plant Simulation in 2D mode, right? You are not displaying a 2D (i.e. flat) dwg in a 3D window of Plant Simulation.
Is the simulation still slow when you close the frame window?
Which version of Plant Simulation are you using?
