Export file size

Hey guys, can someone explain how an export of a single object (as .obj) is 743MB when the entire .3dm file with many more similar objects is, in total, 1.05GB? Is there a way of reducing the export file size, and/or is this normal?

Hello - OBJ is a text format - not at all efficient as far as file size goes as binary.


For comparison, try exporting a JPEG photograph as a PNG and notice the difference.
