I have a part with about a thousand features, which took a few minutes to regenerate. Recently, with minor changes to the part, the regen time jumped to two hours. Any idea what could be causing this? I can't figure it out.
My first question is what kind of part requires a thousand features? What should be looked at is the way the part was modeled originally.
In regards to the regen time, depending on what the minor changes were, there could be a difference in regen time. The addition of rounds, fillets and the like will significantly increase the regen time. I had a similar situation in that someone added fillets and rounds to a terminal strip and phillips head screws; regen time increased approximately ten fold. Hope this helps.
you are having more than thousand of feature it takes more regeneration time. The best practice is to supress the feature except your feature you want to redifine and regenerate. You may avoide the regeneration time. try this technique and mail me back.( E-mail ID: [email protected]) bye from s.satish kumar (Design Engg) sharjah uae
