File size is so large

Re: File size is so large

On the plate create a hole and round features.

then 1.jpggo with seed & boundary option2.JPG

make a copy of the surfaces. then solidify the surface. then pattern the copied surface and then pattern the solidify.3.JPG4.JPG

this will reduce your file size by 60% and regeneration time by 70%.

Re: File size is so large

Don't bet on that, Manoja. Even though the entity count may be down, the geometry copy still calculates intersections. Have a look at the discussion linked below where both regen times and file size are really red herrings when it comes to knowing what is going on behind the scene.

Feature Failure with Repeating Patterns

As a matter of fact, I find the copy geometry patterns tend to fail more often than regular patterns.

Although I agree that your statement -should- be correct, PTC's implementation of a "simple copy" is not simple after all.
