Reduce CAD file size.

Hello, im currently working on a model for bone scaffold, i'm having the problem of some of the file sizes being to large. Is there any method of reduce the CAD file size without any compramise to my design.

Re: Reduce CAD file size.

This will be possible using layer, just create a layer and include all the features like solid geometry and quilt into that layer then hide and save status then save your model, there's no need to use insert and suppress command just to minimize the file size, utilizing the layer will do the trick. maybe few users know that hiding layers will minimize the file size. using insert and suppress feature will take a lot of time to resume all the features in your model. just try to use layer. hope it helps.

Faysel,

I think that the following implication is valid ... complex model geometry => large file size

Your model is complex, because it contains a lot of faces and edges.

To reduce file size, you can set SAVE_MODEL_DISPLAY option in config.pro file.

This option determines the type of preview data saved in the model.

1.] SAVE_MODEL_DISPLAY SHADING_LOD

With this default setting the part file size is 92 MB.

2.]

SAVE_MODEL_DISPLAY WIREFRAME

With this setting the part file size is 25 MB.
