Ecabinets slooooooowing down...

Postby markvan » Fri, Feb 19 2010, 11:17AM

I'm working on a kitchen, not that large... When I try to add some turned legs from under the 'hardware objects' menu things slow to a crawl, with even just one leg. It is slow to the point of being unworkable. I didn't seem to have this problem before. Maybe V6 handles these items differently?? Things seem to get be better if I add the leg. Save the file, and then restart ecabinets.

CPU is a I7 920, with a quadro FX3500, so I think it should handle things ok.

Any ideas??


Edit: Seems like if I only add one leg, save, close and restart, I can use the copy option to duplicate as often as needed without things slowing down. Ecabinets only seems to slow down if adding post's from the hardware objects menu. Copy, and then paste seems to avoid things bogging down.....

That's a past life. When I left the computer field in 2000 I calculated I had written, over the course of 18 years, about 25 million lines of code. That's changing the polarity of a lot of magnetic bits on hard drives. And that's why I am now a woodworker. At least I can see what I've done after a hard days work. :wink:

Try creating a distributor with only the turnings and mouldings that you use. Then use the filter so all the different items don't load, only the ones yopu regularly use. Also switch the view to details and not thumbnails.

I've found this helps.
