I have recently stumbled on a large assembly that I'm working on and save times have been brutal (around 2 hours). I am linked to Teamcenter (NX 184.108.40.206 and Teamcenter 11). I noticed that when I uncheck Save JT in the save options that it only takes 5 minutes to save. What is it doing on JT save?!? Is it going out and saving, or trying to save on released parts, a JT file for each subpart in all the subassemblies? There is no geometry at the top level assembly so there isn't even a JT file being created on the top level part that I'm working on that takes so long to save if JT Save is turned on...
I use JT files for loading lightweight - is there a way to limit JT save creation on only the work part? Any thoughts on what is going on?

When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
With all of the hype around 3D printing, it can be easy to get lost in fascinating, intricate metal parts made with additive manufacturing. These parts, while impressive, are probably dissimilar from many of the parts you currently produce or use. So why invest in metal additive manufacturing? Download Now
