I am working with Sketchup now for only one month, but I struggle for a month with the same problem. I want to make a 3D landescaping model but the file is to ‘big’ so the file just stops working or the loading takes for ever.
With the first landescaping model I made a landescape terrain of 200 kilometers width and 200 kilometers depth. I could work in this model till 40.000 kB. Because I couldn’t fill the whole terrain I changed the landescape terrain to to a smaller terrain of 2 km by 2 km depth but this landescape stoped working at 20.000 kB. So I made the terrain width and depth smaller again and again and everytime I made the terrain smaller, the file stoped working at a lower kB. In the latest file it stopped working at a file of only 2.000 kB…
Could someone please help me how I could work in a terrain of 2 km by 2 km? I did all the things accourding to youtube videos about making your Sketchup file work faster such as making components, working in layers or working in a default style. It can not be entirely my laptop, because I could work in a Vectorworks file of 332.115 kB.
Thank you in advance!
