I had a model last night that was spending 15-20 mins by going from wireframe to shaded, im using the new version V7 latest update, I did update the graphics driver through this fault finding. I used selbadobjects and extractbadsrf which didn’t show anything on the affected model. Managed to find the surface by deleting a few sections off the model, then deleting the layer that they were on. At the time i had extracted a selection of surfaces then started to edit so the original model wasnt ruined.
I then asked myself if the surface was in the main model how was a going to restore the backup if i couldn’t find the affected surfaces / objects?
At the moment i’m backing up sections of the model in layers. I cleared the above error by deleting a layer that i had set for Edit. I suppose i could have hidden each layer to narrow down the badsurface / extractbadsrf which wasnt showing up on the command.
Is this the preferred method of backup, copying sections of model to layers? or copying the whole document as a duplicate? I could then delete the duplicates as i go along. Seems a bit of a faff.
Anyone go any good backup methods ?
