Solidworks slow component patterns

Question asked by Terry Raymond on Jun 24, 2015

How do other software packages compare with large patterns?  Creo, Solidedge, Inventor?

 

Or is it a universal problem with the parasolid kernel?

 

I have a component pattern with 3000 parts; it takes Solidworks ~5 minutes to complete.  Couple this with other large assembly problems and I'm spending about 80% of my day waiting on Solidworks.  The pattern's yellow graphical preview pops up instantly.  So it is making me think there is a very unoptimized process occurring in the background when Solidworks is adding instances of components to the assembly.
