SpaceClaim keeps not responding whenever I use pull function

      I am modeling a large structure (cable-stayed bridge with 500 m span) with ANSYS Mechanical. I have tried to edit the geometry in SpaceClaim, but whenever I try to pull faces in the program the program keeps freezing and not responding. I use a relatively powerful gaming laptop to run the program, so I doubt it's a hardware issue. I use SpaceClaim 2020 R2. Any suggestion would be welcome.

      Hello,

      The older releases of SpaceClaim do have some limitations when it comes to large file handling. I would suggest you try a slightly newer release of SpaceClaim. Also check if you can reducing the rendering to a bit low in settings, and see if it helps.

      Regards.

        Thank you for your help. Unfortunately, my university uses older version that is 2020 R2. Though I might be able to work around it by saving the geometry file from newer version into a STEP file. I will try reducing the render to low first. I will see if it improves anything.
