My first post here, If I can provide any more useful information that would be relevant to this situation, please let me know! My system is running Windows inside of a hefty virtual machine. 8 Gb of ram, 500 Gb space, 4 cores allocated to it’s use. This is on a machine running Linux with an Nvidia GTX 1050 notebook.
So I’m attempting to copy over line art from certain pieces, and I’ve gotten to the point where I can successfully create a very detailed result using LuBan 3D software. The DXF file that I import from LuBan to sketchup contains around 127,300 lines, with no faces. The next task in my process is making faces out of all of these detailed shapes in the line art.
Sketchup has proven to be very unstable when it comes to working on these detailed models in my case. I’m assuming that it’s just dealing with too many lines when I try to make faces, because within a second of making a single line on the model, my program crashes. There is no wait period like it’s working to get it done. It just crashes right away. This happens both when I try to make the entire thing into faces at once, as welll as trying to chop off smaller portions and make faces out of those.
So my question is, is there any way to more efficiently deal with the process I’m trying to undertake without losing any of the detail in the line art? I’d like to keep the amount of detail I have if at all possible, but I am not sure how to go about making it more stable or efficient as I’m a decently basic sketchup user. Perhaps there are extensions that might help with this? I appreciate any help that you can offer! Thank you for your time and responses!
