import autocad file
i am trying to import a geometry from autocad. I am importing a *.sat of 3Mb into gambit but it is really slow. I have a great processor and i dont think the size of the files is so big. in gambit, i go to file / import/ asci Do you know if i have another way to export this file into ganbit? thank you

Re: import autocad file
sat should be your best bet. Gambit can import up to version R15.

Slow import times might be a sign of geometry that needs healed.

Try the 'binary' option in the import dialog.

Re: import autocad file
actually the time to import its ok but when i want to move the geometry is too slow. It is why i was wondering if there was no way to import it with maybe a bit less quality?

Re: import autocad file
not really.

I suggest a better video card.

Re: import autocad file
i dont think as well that is the video card. Actualli i saw that gambit is only using one CPU from the dual core processor. Do you know anyway to work with parallel processor in gambit? thank you

Re: import autocad file
nope. Gambit does not run in parallel and never will.

If the display is slow when panning/rotating then a faster video card will help.
