    Possible to condense a part file size?

    Kevin Andrews

      Highlights of a long story not told:

      Old vault crashed (last year)

      Recovered 60% through email and vendor submittals as we needed the files

      [For a specific part] We were able to find the finished machine part but not the casting

      [For same specific part} Vendor was able to send me a part file for the casting - I am assuming we sent to him as a STEP file originally


      Now for the question...

      The finished casting part has a file size of just over 10 mb. The casting has a file size of just over 110 mb (see below):

      **500-008 is the casting

      **500-008-CM is the finished machine part


      Is there a way that I can condense the file size of the casting? While there really shouldn't be, I do see quite a bit of lag between working on the two simultaneously (two screens with both files open). I am hoping that by condensing the cast part, I can speed up the process.
