Max workable file size for importing mesh into OS
Hi all I'm rebuilding a large vintage aero engine and will be getting some parts scanned to import into OS then regenerate as onshape models. The largest is a 1m long, 0.12m diameter hollow trunk with four outlets, (2 at each end). It has compound curves at the outlets and it quite an elegant piece. Another is a large dinner plate sized casing that holds 4 bearing bushes. Commercial scanners can give me lots of point cloud points at 0.1mm dimensional accuracy but I'd like some guidance please about the practical maximum mesh file size to not overwhelm OS? With thanks Paul
