I’ve been working on this little project in the free, web-based Sketchup the last few weeks. I am just an amateur and am ignorant of the finer points of how a Sketchup model works. About a week ago, things started slowing down while working on my model, and now this morning it’s been practically impossible to work with the model at all, the slowdown is so great.
What problem points have I inadvertently created? I have a few suspects, but with my level of understanding I wouldn’t really know. There is the room divider made of rectangular prisms by the table; there are a few cylindrical posts there, some of which intersect. Then, there are the two Star Trek LCARS-style wall displays with a few images; somehow things started slowing down when I first created those. Finally, I have the wall by the sunken living room made of segmented triangles. I recently moved it over a few centimetres and that seemed to slow things down.
The model is only 5.6 megs. To me that seems small, but perhaps that is large for a Sketchup file? Is this a case where I have some strange things that need to be better optimized, or do I have entire chunks of my work that will need to be deleted and redone in a more simplified manner?
Many thanks to anyone who feels like taking a poke through my model and helping me on this.
