We frequently talk about "large assemblies" on here. Im interested on how you guys determine assy size.
Ive just opened a 2.9meg assy file over our network. It took a while (5 mins) so I quized our network administrator about the operating speed of the network and he asked what the total of all the referenced files was. I couldnt find that info in the assy stats so I did a pack and go to a new folder on my local drive.
The new folder has 565meg of parts/assys in it.
It opened in 3min 46sec from my local drv.

So is this a 2.9meg assy or a 565meg assy?

Other Stats:
2048 comps
1821 parts
6 layers deep
0 lightweight comps - large assy mode turned off
97 top level mates
5166 bodies

It opened in 2 mins 17 sec in lightweight from the local drv.
