    Drawing saves take too long.

    Bryan Sautter

      Can somebody tell me why my drawings seems to get so big?  It is taking well over 30 minutes to save the drawing.  Is there a way to reduce the size is that is the problem.

          Is the drawing based on a large assembly, a part with a lot of embossed text, many configurations, etc? These could add to saving time, but 1/2-hr is definetly too long.

              No it is a large part.  It seems to hang up like it's not responding.  This time it was 40 mins.  It doesn't always seem to take that long, though.

                  When you say it is a large part, do you mean dimensionally large, feature large, or MB large?

                  Have you run the Feature Statistics tool?

                   

                  Can you post the part or at least show it's Feature Manager.

                   

                  Also, can you post your system specs?

                        Along with Kelvin's questions....

                         

                        Are you saving local or to a network share?

                         

                        Is the file rebuilding before saving?

                         

                        Cheers,
