Hi, I’m really close to despairing with Rhino’s performance on my Mac. I recently bought a new 2019 16" MacBook Pro and I thought this would solve some of my issues due to better CPU and added GPU. But Rhino does not really feel much faster and often so slow that it becomes a pain to use.
One issue I’m experiencing right now: I have a 2D plan .DWG file that I want to use as basis for my 3D geometry. I open it in Rhino and removed some layers to get rid of unnecessary geometry – so far so good (even though selecting curves is already slow). Then I scale it by 200 to get it to actual size. After that it’s beach ball only and the file becomes completely useless.
I read in another thread that there are performance issues with “far from origin” geometry. So I thought changing the units from cm to m without scaling the geometry would help. And I think it did in the original file. But when I try to use that file as a block in another file – beach ball and no chance of doing anything in Rhino.
Any idea how I can make this work? I am attaching the 3DM file that I made from the original DWG file.Plan EG 200131 minimal.3dm (12.1 MB)
