I have a very simply model with a Condoc scenes: Coloured plan, Construction plan, coloured Section A, coloured Section B.
When I send to layout using the Condoc button sketch freezer and I have to force shut down. I open Layout and no drawings have been load.
I am starting to find this a really unreliable and it crash to offend.
I have to go back to manual doing the scenes set and then just doing the stand Layout set up. But it always works. Yes long but reliable.November 1, 2020 at 11:12 pm #27192
Luke! I would dig around in your model for heavy objects. Sounds like it just needs cleaned up/optimized?November 1, 2020 at 11:15 pm #27195
model is not big, 31mg and everything is in the layers. So what do I to find the problem? What does optimised mean?November 1, 2020 at 11:18 pm #27196
can you send me the model? file size isn’t the only metric. There could be a component that repeats thousands of times with thousands of faces… only 1mb, but it will choke the whole process! send it to [email protected]November 2, 2020 at 2:43 am #27198
did you see the model? So I decide to detail some imported model items that have curves like chairs, bottle, plants; and yes the model was able to send to layout. But that does not really help me as I need this items in the model.
So how do you optimise a model.November 2, 2020 at 2:20 pm #27199
Hello Luke! I opened your file, tried run the ConDoc Export… Just like you said it spins for way too long so I cancelled it and took a look around…
The wine bottle is massive! 4,587 faces!!! and there are 570 of them in the model!!! That’s 2,614,590 faces that your graphics card has to represent, and LayOut has to flatten when you export that elevation. I replaced it with this low poly wine bottle from formfonts.com. https://formfonts.com/3D-Model/1/1380/1/low-poly-wine-bottle-config/. This wine bottle has 517 faces which nets 2,319,900 LESS faces… Just to represent wine bottles!
The issue also lies in your chairs, tables, and refrigerator racks. They are SUPER heavy on face count for what they are actually representing. So you were asking LayOut to flatten all of this 3d geometry which is a huge task. You can help LayOut by assigning the 3D Object layer to the heavy representation you have now, then drawing a flat 2d symbol and assign the 2D Graphic layer. This way LayOut doesn’t have to flatten these objects, ever!
I made these changes and ran the export again… about 2 minutes which is really not bad… still a little long. The liquor bottles in your elevations are likely slowing it down, that’s where I would continue digging. Once you run the export and drop the drawings into LayOut, updates will be much faster.
Let me know if that helps!
