I modeled up a building elevation that our company will be providing hardware on. My model has 10,000+ parts in 21 different assemblies (which have sub assemblies).
Brief Description of wall:
I have drawn every single nut and bolt required to build this wall.
I need to take renderings of this elevation and detail sections.
Inventor always crashes, even if I want to take screen captures of "Ray Tracing" it crashes.
I have tried going into each assembly and individual sub asseblies and shrinkwrap them to make them a single part, it crashes.
I have tried exporting my parts into REVIT .adsk file and build this wall in REVIT but it crashes as well.
Is this a hardware issue?? or is my file simply too large??
Please help! Thank you

Post #4 looks like extreem overkill
Can you attach one of the smaller sub-assemblies here for a closer look at technique?
Your instructor should have explained that an assembly file (*.iam) is worthless without part files (*.ipt).
An iam is only a list of hyperlinks to the part files and a record of assembly constraints and a bit more.
House of Cards see #8 post in this thread by Walt Jaquith.
I usually see (based on experience)
poor modeling techniques
poor assembly constraint techniques.
A sample assembly might be a good place to start in trying to figure out the problem.
