Rainbow wheel after downloading components from 3D Warehouse (new to SU)


#1

When loading anything from the 3d warehouse into my model there seems to be a long lag time. I get a rainbow wheel for about 2-3min before the component is loaded into my model. Any help?


#2

3D warehouse models are often error prone.

Best to open them individually, correct issues such as not at the origin and then load into your working project.

Also, Window>model info>statistics>purge now.

I’m not working with very large square footage and have an edges count of over 3million. Could that be an issue?


#4

Yes, it definitely could. In general, edge counts over about 1 million can cause serious slowdowns in SketchUp, how severe depending on your hardware. This is a particular issue when downloading models from the 3DWarehouse, as many of them are way too detailed for safe use as “entourage” in a model.

Also worthwhile to check Su hardware requirements - Su 2019

That makes sense. I am on my personal computer which is a Macbook, but will be getting a computer with greater graphic storage going forward. Thankfully I’m done editing and just need to take Layout views of my space. Hoping I won’t run into issues there. Thanks so much! I’m glad I joined this community!
