I’ve got a coworker that’s experiencing some issues with a SketchUp file we converted from a Revit file. It’s sitting around 110 MB so it’s kinda large but they’re running a brand new iMac Pro with 64 GB of RAM and the 10-core CPU so it shouldn’t be the computer. I converted the Revit file and have since reworked it to clean it up even further since multiple people have worked in it - that was Tuesday.
We were looking at things like the WebCache folder and such but I’m not knowledgeable enough to just say “delete it” because I’m curious to know if certain plugins or functions will quit working. I read up on the Chromium stuff that they implemented but I’m still a little fuzzy on it.
Symptoms: Very Slow when selecting, Painting, etc. Navigation doesn’t seem to be affected. But I watched them trying to paint a surface and it took an inordinate amount of time to switch tools. We’ve resized the textures to cut down on file size but it doesn’t seem to have an effect.
It runs flawlessly on my computer but I can’t necessarily say it’s a computer issue because it’s just the one file according to them.
They said that after booting their computer on Wednesday after I cleaned it again, the file was working normally, but by the end of the day it was back to running poorly.
So… I guess if anyone has any advice or tips for this then I’m all ears. I think the last resort is to copy everything to a new, blank file, and be selective about what goes and what stays. It’s entirely possible that another designer on the project broke it somehow. We have a few people here that are really good at breaking models lol
