I assumed that using the freeze bar on all of the parts in an assembly would speed up the loading of that assembly but it doesn't seem to help at all. Does anyone have any experience with this?
The Freeze Bar will help with the rebuilds, not the loading. The parts and sub-assemblies still need to load themselves into the assembly you open, they just won't rebuild themselves when you do a rebuild.
So what it does basically is help when you rebuild your assembly, instead of rebuilding all the functions of the parts and sub-assemblies it will rebuild only the mates and the assembly functions.
and..it keeps other people from screwing your stuff up, or at least they have to work a little harder at it.
That's the main reason I'm looking to use it Dan!
Ah, that makes sense...thanks Alex.
