I’m starting this to split off part of the discussion from the thread linked below regarding very slow opening and saving of files.
The discussion had become confusing because of 2 or 3 potentially different issues being discussed within one thread. This happened because it was thought they may have been linked but this seems unlikely now.
It hadn’t occurred to me to try importing instead of exporting. It is amazing how the problem file imports extremely quickly. Then changing to any other view than wireframe results in the very long delay experienced when trying to open the file normally, along with the high RAM and CPU use.
Just turning off (unchecking) the texture within the chair material seems to have solved the problem and that avoids needing to reset up the environment, sky etc.
One thing, I can’t figure out how to detach the texture completely? It seems like we could do with a icon to remove textures completely without having to choose an alternative.
Sorry, this was a mistake. The commit to fix this bug did not go into latest RhinoBETA. The issue itself - RH-53262 - said that it did, but that was an error. Upon further inspection, this went into the build that will be Rhino 6 for Mac SR17 (the first update). I’ll let you know when a testable build will be in the wild.
Our plan is to ship the first service release candidate on the same day that we ship. You can choose to test the release candidate right away and in typically about a month the release candidate will become an official service release.
