I’m finding that Sketchup and Layout are performing much better with 2022 on my M1 Mac but Layout is very slow when saving. Here are some things that may be effecting the save time but I can’t sort out which, or which combination, it would be:
referencing (2) .skp files in same Layout file
multiple wall sections with structure framing materials detailed (framing, drywall, insulation, etc are all modeled to create section details in layout. Only a few (2) have been created with Skalp, otherwise the sections are native SU sections.
I’m using textures/materials for hatch patterns on the ends of each component (seems like this would be more a rendering issue, which I’m not having, instead of a saving speed issue?)
Layout file is 11 pages
saving speed is virtually the same (maybe a few seconds difference) with raster vs hybrid viewport rendering
rendering is set to low while export rendering is set to high
It could be a number of things that are affecting the same time. How large is the LayOut file? How large are the SketchUp reference files? Can you share the LO file so we can see exactly what you’ve got set up?
It’s a common response to “my last work is my best work” in combination with “I have to much work to make and revise templates so I’ll deal with it later”. Bad combo indeed. Templates, if done right save time.
I’m good on the Sketchup file sizes. My models have a lot of detail so I think I’ve done everything I can to keep them as manageable as possible.
Thanks for your quick reply. Helped to have a second brain on the issue that was right in front me, ha!
