Referenced viewport, viewports

Recommended Posts

Ok, my referenced viewport, viewports are rendering really slow. The viewports on the sheet layer are just enlarged 2D plan views, not 3D views. The original file is 31.9MB and the file with the reference viewport is 10.4MB. To big? Also, we imported a revit file into the original drawing file. Would that slow it down? We have also purged the file several times. Any suggestions?

Hi...

Try going to 'Document Preferences' and unchecking 'Save Viewport Cache' (if it isn't unchecked already), and save the (10.4MB) file. See if that affects the file size...

I had a file that had boosted up to 309.8MB... YES, 309.8MB...

When I unchecked that option... and re-saved... I was left with a file that was 32MB!!!

Dunno if that is the issue for you, but definitely worth a try!

Let us know...

Feel free to send the files over and I can have a closer, more detailed look at it if you wish.

We currently have a similar problem... our original file is small but our referenced files are 25mB each.

Even when only referencing small parts it is still a problem.

Is this a known bug?

Hi...

Edit the reference, and uncheck 'Save Reference Cache to Disk'. This will mean that the file will update automatically on open, but the file size should be smaller.

The reference references the entire file, but due to viewports, you are able to control what you see and don't see.

I too have had similar issues. I have general arrangement section that is referenced into another file simply to generate 1:5 details. Weirdly the original file can print and be amended easily where as the new detail drawing is very slow and creates huge print files with PDF's at 80mb!

yep - we always uncheck "Save Reference Cache to Disk"

The file we are working on is small (because the reference is not cached), the files we are referencing are large.
