Very slow assembly drawing load

Question asked by Keith Howard on Sep 29, 2011

Hi Gang,


I hope someone can help me out here, I have an assembly drawing that is about 8.9Mb in size. I have checked the drawing out of the vault and have it on my local drive. When I open this drawing it takes 25 minutes to load the drawing! I am no SolidWorks expert but this seems a tad bit long to me! : )


My system is an HP Z400 with Intel Xeon W3520@2.67Ghzprocessor, 4 gB of ram, the video card is an nVidia Quadro FX 1800 w/ 768 ram HDD is 250gb with 165gb free

The OS is Windows XP Pro 64 bit with service pack 2

SolidWorks 2011 with service pack 4


So what should I be looking for in the assembly that could be bogging this thing down?


Thanks for any help with this problem,
