Hey guys, I have a dynamic component (see .gif) with a 9x9 grid of components (in this configuration). Each "cell’ of the grid contains 7 components (1 bottle, 2 hardware, and 2 machining components in each piece of hardware for drilling holes). =567+ components.
When I move this component, why is there a “Working…” time? What is being processed, and is there a way around this?
Thought 1: It’s recalculating the global positions of each origin. This seems unnecessary. I removed the drilling components (324 components) and noticed a proportional improvement.
Thought 2: It’s the geometry (45,000 edges, 16,000 faces). I tried exploding this down to JUST geometry, made it a group, and the move was instant. I also changed each bottle and hardware to a basic box, to no effect.
Thought 3: Some Plug-Ins (V-Ray for SketchUp, for one) cause a slowdown in how ANY DC is processed (exponential based on complexity, I think. Processing takes at least a couple times longer). But trying this on a machine with no plugins had the same effect.
Thanks in advance.
