Solidworks 2008 - 8 GB RAM PC - Windows XP
I have one very big IGES 850 MB file. It is basically an assembly file which is modeled in some other modeling software and converted to IGES Format.
And it is zipped as 150 MB file, if i unzipped it, then it is 850 MB file. Now i opened that IGES file (850 MB) in Solidworks 2008 and it tooks
nearly 8 hours and still it is not opened. My Intension is if that file will opens in solidworks 2008 means then i will save as Solidworks Part (Not as Assembly)
and i can use it comfortably later. But the problem is first time opening itself tooks more time and still iot is not opened.
Any body suggest some settings changes Tools > Options or other may increase the speed of the IGES file opening and working with the large assy.
thanks in advance
