Slow Array Performance

i am building arrays in an assembly, anywhere from 10x10 to 30x50 of very simple shapes that are merely surfaces. i am using the array to layout panels that are 3'x6's for flat industrial roofs. I often have to eliminate some items from the pattern to avoid obstructions. I then place the array it in a drawing to extract quantities and weights and operate on them in a BOM.

i am astounded at how slow the array updates take. these can be multiple minutes on initial creation. my machine is not the latest and greatest, but it is by no means a slouch.

i have the same issue on bot hthe laptop and the desktop.

have any of you experienced this sort of behavior?
