having copied out to a new file my various aircraft skins and panel lines and rivet lines just for the fuselage, only tail for latter with rivet circles etc , rest of rivets yet to create, thought I would see what 2D drawing makes of it so far, waitng 8 mins and still waiting.
Doesn't bode well for turning this into a profile. Not even able to get a 2D drawing from it, or is 8 mins normal, how long might the wait be.
Failing this, what other method to get panel lines to appear from edges of surfaces etc. Will I have to dupEdges and project to planar surface Cplane etc ? then ditto all rivets and other lines ?

returned to it aft posting this and its frozen now.
My aim to create plans from the CAD work is not looking good. simple task fails here.
try again with just spinner which has rings of 3D rivets, took a few minutes. Try again with current view selected and just spinner, took 30 secs or so.
Select cowling only and 4 secs ! it doesnt like rivets !! and aircraft have loads of them.
Furthermore the cowling didnt end up with spinner at front end, there is no placement logic if doing each part in turn. It crashes on thw whole thing.
Any ideas ?
