This one baffles me… Answer me this…
I have been doing some time testing on SW 2019 SP 3.0 because it just seems slower than 2018 5.0 (although maybe not the case). What I have seen is excessively long times required to change from one configuration, in a moderately sized assembly, to another configuration. Configuration “1” takes “x” time to open. It then takes “4-6x” the time to switch from configuration “2” back to configuration “1”. The same holds true for the opposite direction.
I have also found this to be an issue with 2018 5.0. I always thought switching configurations was slow, but putting times to it shows 4-6 times longer to switch to a configuration than to open that configuration from scratch. This baffles me because a good portion of the models are already in memory. Why so long? Settings selection? Softer issue?
