Why does CAD DWG and Revit slow down max so much?
show user profile  jpedleham
Why is it that even a small amount of CAD DWG's and even some very basic revit slows down 3ds max so much?
Its crazy the difference. even on my pc which is rocking a decent 16 core Xeon and 16gb ram.
Has anyone got any tips on how to speed things up?

even on a 24core 64gb machine its slow. Attach the splines together, works faster as 1 object.

Would you guys suggest any methods for optimising cad or revit models? Ill definitely try joining the splines!

not really. the essence of a cad model is shit. basically it. other than optimising, joining and deleting splines there's not much else to do. your average cad modeller is a scruffy bastard when it comes to modeling (they deal in lines, not pretty visuals) so this is why lines over lines over lines is usually order of the day.

fookin cad monkeys ;)

if im visualizing a job derived in cad, i'll usually draw/model over the shite im given from the cad station. this way i know im in good hands.
