Replacing parts and sub-assemblies in your top-level assembly with Step (.stp), Iges (.igs), or Parasolid (x_t) can help improve performance.
- [Instructor] When working in large assemblies,…it's always a good idea to try to reduce…the file size of the assembly as much as you can,…by swapping out components that you're finished…designing and working on with dumb solid bodies.…Let me show you what I'm talking about.…Your exercise files will be in a similar folder to this.…I'm looking at the Wheel Loader.…So you can see here, this is a 3200 kilobyte file.…I'm going to go ahead and open it.…And I'm going to open it, and I'm going to open it Resolved.…
All right, not too bad to handle.…Let's take a look at the Assembly Visualization.…This will give us an idea…about the performance that we have.…So if we go over to Performance Analysis,…we can see that this component…is causing the most rebuild time.…So there's a lot of features in this,…pretty extensive.…If we switch back to our assembly,…we can see that it takes 4.15 seconds to rebuild.…
Now we want to limit that rebuild time as much as we can,…and also limit the open time as much as we can.…So let's try to swap this out for a dumb solid,…
