Blocks vs Objects

Hi,

I’m working on a file which uses large numbers (1000-2000) of identical objects. The objects are reasonably - but not enormously - complex, and things are really slowing down when working on the file.

I’m wondering if I’d be better off using duplicates of blocks or of the original object. Are blocks more efficient in ways other than file size?

Any input appreciated!

thanks
Peter

Hi Peter - you definitely should use blocks here. See
