DWG files with multiple layers issue

Genius

Hi Edgers,

 

I am facing the issue with a performance when I am working with the DWG files - imported from Revit/AutoCAD. After creating the SE drawing and implementing/placing in the DWG files, the SE performance decreasing dramatically, I would say 10 times slower.

 

After hiding all layers of this DWG file - performance coming back to normal. 

 

Do you have any idea how to resolve this issue ?

 

Maybe would I ask someone to create a macro to swich off all the layers in one click ?

 

Thank you,

 

Arek

Hi @arekkul

   

This can be done directly from Solid Edge by right-clicking on the layers group in the Edgebar.

Is that the little issue with layers or are you facing a larger problem with layers in the imported drawing ?

Hi @arekkul

  

All layers can be hidden at once by right-clicking on the layers group in the Edgebar.

Hi @Tushar

 

There is no option ( trying to right clic on the Draft Layer group ). Right click not working.

If you go down, you can hide every layer one after another only.

Hi Arek:

 

You mentioned about importing a third-party DWG into Solid Edge.

But the video shows a layering structure which resembles the one generated when placing drawing views from a Solid Edge model, qith layers segregated per drawing view.

 

When I imported a DWG files with several layers, they all came in into a single "Layers" node which I can all hide or show by right-clicking.

 

I think I am missing something obvious or not understood the problem fully.

You can shift-select or ctrl-select the layers under "draft", right click and hide, show or show only.

Hi @Tushar

 

thank you for reply,

 

maybe I have explained wrongly - sorry.

 

Well, my problem is regarding to the video I have attached previously.

 

But, I am very interested how you did your DWG conversion - just one layer after.

 

Thank you for the answer,

 

Regards,
