I have never used a community forum like this before so I’m not sure about the procedures here.
My file has suddenly become overloaded.
I tried Purge in the Model Info and let it run for about 30 minutes. I finally had to end the task.
I have a fence grouped with lots of textures and thought I should put it on a layer to turn it off. When I select any group or component, most of the time the program just stalls out. If I select something small, and open the entity window, no information is showing in the window.
I was able to go to the Model Info window and clicked on statistics. It says I have 5788 layers! I haven’t put anything on layers, only what was brought in from CAD. When I go into the layers window I can see the thousands of layers with no descriptions, just numbers. I turned some of them off and I can see nothing in my model disappearing. I was hesitant to delete them just in case.
I suspect that something came in when I downloaded a component from the Warehouse. I have tried to select only components that aren’t too big. I have gone online and tried to implement all the tips to keep my file from slowing down. Any suggestions?
