I was wondering if somebody might be able to help me out with this Block business. I am trying to create a modular model in grasshopper and then manipulate it and fine tune it in Rhino. My problem is due to the quantity of elements my Rhino is really struggling with the file. I have been looking into Blocks to try and improve the efficiency of the file but this is where I have hit an impasse.
What I’m wondering is, I have a series of potentially identical pieces. would it be possible to define one of them as a block and then get rhino to scan the document and replace any identical elements with that block instance?
Thanks in advance,
P.S. If a large number of elements are referenced as one block does this actually have any positive effect on the efficiency or size of the file? Is there any point in doing that?
