Do you think it's possible for TC 16.2 to open really really big files from a different CAD program. I know TC claims it can open these file types but I'm not sure if it'll be able to open these large files. Either TC is hanging or it's just taking a really long time.
The files in question that I received from a supplier are a .dxf file that is about 250 Mb and an .stp file that is 160 Mb.
I'm debating if these files are corrupt because they came from a zip file that was only about 100 Mb which unpacked to about 500Mb. I had no idea you could compress a file that much, but you never know. Does anybody know how long it might take to open a file as big as these regardless of file format.
I did a small test and opened a DXF file about 194 MB in TurboCAD v16.2, it took less than 4 minutes!
Just to compare file size, this DXF file (194 MB), size as a DWG file is about 21 MB, and the same file saved as a TCW file is only about 6 MB.
When this DXF file (194 MB) is compressed to a ZIP file the compression ratio is about 7% (size about 13 MB).
