Section view freezes Fusion

Hi everyone,


For the last roughly two months I have been experiencing regular freezes when working with section view. I found a support article ( which seems to discuss something similar, but related to complex models where creating the section will take a long time, freeze or crash. By contrast, in my case, the section view is created easily and instantly and I can move around, zoom in and out freely - until it suddenly freezes for several minutes, with Fusion pegged at 66% of my 16 core CPU. This happens seemingly randomly every few minutes while using sections views, even with simple designs consisting of two bodies made up from a handful of extrusions and chamfers.


I was hoping an update would fix it, but there have been at least two updates since I started noticing it and there has been no improvement.



Has noone else observed this? Is there anything about my machine/fusion setup which could be triggering this? Since it is not a crash (Fusion starts responding again after a few minutes) I do not have crash reports. I would be grateful for any help with this annoying problem.


Best regards,

Thomas Ziemann

Is it possible for you to share the model with me? Is it more than one design, and if yes, are the designs similar? 


Sharing a link, attaching the design, or sending me a DM are ways you can share if possible. Glad to test it out.
