I don’t know SketchUp very well, but my dad asked me to recommend him hardware to improve the performance while he’s working with it. However, with my GTX 980 / i5 6500 / 16GB RAM it’s still a little bit laggy when I open his projects and zoom out, or when focussing on certain places.
He’s new to SketchUp, and I have a feeling he’s using too many polygon-high models. I looked at Window > Model Info > Statistics. (I checked ‘Show nested components’, that’s to include everything I think?) It showed the numbers below. Could anyone tell me if this is far too many? This is for a medium sized garden, and he says once he’s using plants/trees it gets slow.
