Calculation/regenerating too slow

I am focusing to perform Belt Conveyor Systems calculations (in depth) using Mathcad Prime versions. After some preliminary work, I did the first of a few hundreds of design calculation files. Despite, this is the first (and comparatively simple), the performance of the work sheet is too slow. As such, I am thinking how I will be able to keep building the whole system of design files.

I look forward to receiving comments.

Note: the file (Mathcad Prime 2.0) attached.

Thanks

I just tested your file and it works fast in Mathcad Prime 2.0. What OS Windows are you using?

For me, it takes about 4.5s to calculate. How fast do you want it to be?

Thanks for your comment.

It is Windows 7 Ultimate. It was bad while creating the worksheet. If you think it is fast enough, I am happy too. My concern is with more stuff adding in to this file (for about 30, 40, or 60 pages including Excel, data and image files), will it be OK.

However, I will keep doing.

Best Regards.

It depends on what you add. Almost all the calculation time in your worksheet is due to the three solve blocks. Since solve blocks are iterative they are often slow though, so unless the proportion of solve blocks in your worksheet is representative of what the finished worksheet will contain the calculation time cannot just be scaled up.

Thank you for the reply. It is iterative and takes a little more time. Today, I got better performance while editing by choosing the option "Stop all calculations". I added some more files and and calculations, and now the running time is near 10s. To have better performance, I will derive a formula and try.

I am just new for Mathcad, so need to struggle for some time. Thank you for your time.

Best regards.
