Hi everyone,


This is my first post here on the SolidWorks Forum. I have been using SolidWorks now for about 6 years and up until this assembly have I never seen it move this slow.


I am currently running a Dell Machine, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40 Ghz, 8 Gigs of DDR2 memory, Nvidia Quadro FX 1700 512mb, Dual 22" Samsung SyncMaster 226BW Monitors.


I have an assembly that I am currently work on for my Company. This assembly takes sometimes up to 10 minutes to switch from a part back to the assembly. It takes forever to mate something. Can any help me out with this?


This assembly currently consist of 1551 parts, 207 unique part documents, 36 unique parts, 8 Sub-Assemblies, 1303 top level components, 2722 top level mates, 4436 bodies


Please let me know if there is anymore information that I need to provide to determine what my problem is.






I have attached a .jpeg of my assembly.
