I have an fairly small assembly drawing (only 4 main components). I have embedded 2 components - a gasoline engine and a reciprocation pump - imported from vendors that were transferred to me as surface models. The assembly drawing I created is ridiculously slow during zooms and pans. We're talking 20-30+ second delays before the command takes action. Model rotates and such are slow and choppy. The engine is saved as a part, pump is an assembly. Is there anything I can do to speed things up a bit? SolidWorks 2015, 12GB ram, Quadtro 4000 w/2GB onboard.
