Large Models

When a model containing more than 500 000 elements is opened, it may become difficult to work with the 3D model due to memory requirements for the 3D rendering and visualisation.

Should such a model be opened, you are prompted to select whether the model is to be displayed in the 3D view or only load the model into memory. You can still view and process the results in 3D views or graphs, just without any geometry visualisation. The model can be loaded at a later stage from the context menu in the project browser.

Figure 1. An information message is stating that the model contains more than 500 000 mesh elements.
