Yesterday I had to do a project with perforated metal. I didn’t extrude the material, I just created it as a surface.
Even so, my computer locked up, crashed, etc. etc. It was like working on a very, very slow old computer. I went into wireframe to improve the situation but then I couldn’t switch back to shaded for rendering. Finally I had to export to C4D as an obj file to get the project rendered.
My question is very general - how could I make the experience better? My computer isn’t top of the line but it’s not a dog either - i7-6700, 16gb ram, GTX-970 video.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any advice you might have.
