May I ask why you shrinkwrap? I have found no use for it and would like to see why others do.

Ok.

Do you think your working efficiently in terms of opening speeds? And in terms of drawing output.

Or do you swear and curse continuously?

I've used it to send a model of an assembly to a customer without sharing all of the components as well.

I would really like to see your PC specs, and your working speed.

For presentation of large projects (~1.000.000 parts), we have to shrinkwrap basically everything.

For normal work, assemblies up to 50.000 parts (normally couple of 1000) work normally without SW.

That looks almost unreal! :smileyhappy:
I have old workstation (8 gb of ram, quadro 256 mb of ram, xeon ....) and have problems with assemblies larger than 10,000 parts. So, if I want to do anything bigger, I have to shrinkwrap subassemblies. And best performance i get now is with simplify (FDS 2013) and shrinkwrap (surface), with broken link to original (which are on network, and i prefer to do big things local on other mashine with ssd - it's just faster).

But it's true, i'm still learning things.

 

Thnx!
