Whats your largest ever file size loaded into turbocad?

Ive got at the moment a 65mb file with around 15 xref files loaded.

I've got a dozen files more than 110 MB in size (ranging up to 427 MB), but the largest of them were STL imports.  The largest files I created myself range up to 194 MB.

I once played around with an OBJ file that was 1.6 GB (not a typo... gigabytes).  Took most of half an hour to load, as I recall, maybe more.

The biggest file I had to work with was a STEP file of a John Deere engine package that was 650MB. It was a very detailed drawing which even included internals like pistons, cams, bolts, bearings and gaskets. In order to use it in a drawing, I had to eliminate those internal details, which brought it down to and 350MB. My finished drawing was about 450MB.

Today I imported a 650mb autocad drawing of a submarine from grabcad just for a look see. Had nothing that I could use but it had a lot of detail.

Being retired I don't need to share stuff with others. So. I only tend to work with native ACIS TC drawing that I have done myself.

My biggest so far (which is not yet finished) is 289,051 KB on disk (around 282 MB).  Loading into TC memory used 9,673.9 MB in wireframe (around 9.4 GB).  The MB figure should be offset by the amount TC uses with a new from scratch drawing 117.1 MB.
