I have a question about the weight of 3D warehouse objects.
I recently downloaded a lot of accouterments to include in my model but the file got so huge it was unmanageable.
I typically download the components into a temporary file then explode everything until there is nothing left to explode. I then group the object and bring it into the model I am working with. I follow this protocol so that my component and layers list doesn’t get completely cluttered.
MY QUESTION is: Does it make a difference to file size if the object that ends up displaying on my screen is a group or a component?
