Sketchup for Web Shop Freezing up every 3 seconds

I’ve been using Sketchup Shop for 2 to 3 years, but starting 2 days ago it started freezing up every few minutes. Today it’s freezing up every few seconds. I get about 3 seconds of work done followed by 10 seconds of waiting. I.e. it’s become useless.
I have gigabit internet service and it seems to be working well otherwise. I have a Win 10 machine with an AMD Ryzen 7 cpu and 32 gigs of RAM and 2 Tb of hard disk space. and an NVidia GeoForce GTX 1080 graphics card.
Does anybody have any suggestions / ideas ?
Because I’m running out of hair to pull out.

What browser are you using?


Have you updated Chrome recently?

How large is your SketchUp model file? I’ve been working in Shop today and everything seems to be moving along nicely.

Maybe that’s my problem, it’s 13 Mb.

Try purging unused components and then unused materials from the model and see if that helps.

It seems to be working better thanks. I unloaded some images of books that I had put on a bookshelf and now the pauses are much shorter.
Thank you

As in photos? Or components from the 3D Warehouse?
