The model I have been working on in Archicad 25 is not that big and is not that complicated. When I open it the message that appears reads “Generating Section/ Elev.” and “1 | Processing Elements” This does not ever complete. Same thing if I can get the 3D view to open- the spinning wheel keeps spinning and nothing ever opens. Thinking that I might have inserted a corrupted object or done something wrong, I went back to the original file, saved as and started again. Soon, I started getting the same message. Now, I have to Ctrl Alt Delete to close the file. Any suggestions for how to fix this?
If more than 7 million with average hardware it would be challenging to calculate.
If not, I guess there is a corrupt object, I would get rid of those objects to see what happens. Does your elevation show a lot of railings? A faulty SEO perhaps, etc. I wish I can help you,but without specifics is hard to guess, but if you set all layer priorities to 0 in layer combinations, you’ll be able to see the model without any problems. AC will not calculate its connections.

From my experience, the issue may come from a very complex profile, or too many unnecessary intersections in the file. As others suggested, checking the number of polygon and reviewing the SEO connections is a good start. Furthermore, we have this article which will help you to go through each category one by one on your own to troubleshoot the problem: How to Optimize Your Project Performance
But if these don't work, I suggest reaching out to the local support for a deeper look into the project.
I hope this helps you with the case. Please let me know if you have any further questions!
