A coworker has drawn a vertical element made with the wall tool, and this vertical element is repeated throughout the whole perimeter of the builing (large scale building), the issue now (obvously) is that amount of single elements are making impossible to navigate the file.
I would like to hear your opinions/tips on how to tackle this on a efficient manner. To me at least, the idea of using a wall for this kind of elements is simply the wrong approach, but what could be the right way on how to do it?
even a gdl would be more efficient or a curtain wall tool? 🤔
This is a screenshot of the element, for obvious reasons I cannot share a picture of the whole building.
The wall tool is pretty efficient for polygons, it would deliver you the same outcome as any other tool within Archicad. Although Morphs for some reason require a bit more grunt compared to standard walls. One issue I would check is that the fins are not intersecting with any other element. If they are they are probably performing hundreds of BMAT priority-based connections. One thing to test would be to put the fins on their own layer and change the layer intersection to a unique value compared to the other layers and update you layer combination to see if it makes the file run smoother.
Try this workflow: After every needet editing - save it as librarypart. Keep the original in another file saved, if You maybe have to edit it later anyway. Libraryparts are much faster than originals - try it out.
