I am working on a plug-in for ScketchUp that requires to explode the model. Since exploding is a slow procedure I would like to estimate the time it takes to warn the users of the plug-in about it.
I tried to estimate the time a explode operation takes by counting the time taken by the whole explode operation divided by the number of the export operations performed (which is done following this thread Counting explode operations to be performed in a model). After exploding 20-30 models I could see the average time for a explode operation is not very consistent, for most of the models it ranges from 0.5 to 3 seconds, but I have seen cases were it was as quick as 5e-3 seconds and others as slow as 25 seconds.
Is there a better way to estimate how long would take the explode of a model?
best regards, Carlos
