I’d like to find out why opening large STEP files takes such a long time. It looks to me like the time it takes increases exponentially with file size:
STEP file size [MB]_____time to open [minutes]
Is this to be expected and does it make sense to someone who knows what happens during the process?
The hardware resources do not appear to be used fully: CPU is at 12% and Memory around 20%.
Do I have any options of speeding up this process apart from looking at the actual contents of the STEP file being opened?
