Ok so I feel like there is something that Im missing in using Rhino. This is a very simple surface with many perforations, but I feel like a 600MB is too large for this. Is there a better way to do it? Also, I simple cannot complete this task of spilling the perforations out of the surface. It works when I split with just one curve, but when I select all of them the program just freezes until I force quit. The most I kept it running was for like 12 hours and then decided it wasn’t going to work. It is apparently using all of my CPU and Ram when its running, but it just never finishes. For some reason, the split worked for the first half of perforations and it took like 15 minutes. But the right half isn’t working. So what am I doing wrong here?
I’m running a MacBook Pro with an i7 7700hq and AMD Radeon 550 16GB RAM.
The viewport runs very slowly and takes 5 minutes just to change viewport styles. I don’t think this graphics card is helping at all, but the single thread performance of this CPU is decent. Not sure whats happening here. Is it JUST the file size? I am thinking of buying a dedicated PC for Rhino with a desktop class CPU, but only if my current hardware is really underpowered.
