I have a huge file that I need to convert to a smg file but it is way too slow and composer keeps crashing on me. I would like to know how I can get the model but not all of the other stuff in the SW file that is bogging it down.
check out the save as function and options to different file types.
maybe save the file as a part...
I would recommend saving as a smg directly from Solidworks and not opening in Composer and then saving. If this is what you are already doing you are going to have even bigger problems once it gets in Composer. Composer does not play well with very large assemblies. Depending on your project needs you may need to consider breaking it into several files.
