Hi there, would anyone be able to take a look at my project and see why it is this files so big ive grouped every layer and it shouldnt be this big"!
Upload the file to a file sharing service like Drop Box and share the link.
File size alone shouldn’t prevent exporting to DWG, but exports can take a long time, even hours or overnight. In my experience the exporter and importer in version 2022 is faster than in older ones.
i appreciate both your help. Dropbox - sketchupss.skp - Simplify your life
please see if theres any ways of reducing the size of this or ways of exporting it to 2d dwg
Some things I’ve found:
Stray geometry at a huge distance from the rest of the model.
Incorrect tag usages. All edges and faces should be created and remain untagged.
Purging unused stuff will help a little in this case.
I expect all that furniture in your model is largely responsible for the long export time. All that geometry has to be exported and there is a lot of it. The bed is not the worst offender in the model. It was just the closest to the section plane. (Doesn’t anyone know how to make a bed anymore?)
As @Anssi suggests, you will just need to be patient.Or you could clean up the furniture components and reduce or eliminate the unneeded geometry.
wow i cant thank you enough mate, i really appreciate it, this ill sort out - re the bed yes im a lazy unistudent!
Many of your furnishing components are very heavy, and your model has many copies of them.
It’s unfortunate that you’ve made groups for furniture like the beds. Since they all look the same you could have used a component and if you had, it would be quick work to replace the mattress, duvet, and pillow with a much simpler version. As it is you’ll have to go through the model an edit each one. Or edit one and replace all of the others.
