OnShape Prompts to Refresh Browser When Attempting to Change Drawing View on Large Assembly File
AndrewOverby Member Posts: 7 PRO
I'm working with a large assembly that contains a lot of edges/faces. I have been having issues in my drawings when trying to insert and change drawing views. I simply can't get the new view to load without OnShape prompting to refresh the browser. I'm running OnShape through Chrome on a Mac Mini M2 Pro with a 500mbps average wired internet connection. I'm not sure what is driving this behavior, but I doubt it is performance-based? It is a shame because I thought I had a CAD powerhouse for working with these larger files. Didn't have any problems up to now. The drawing has about 9 pages with various views of this assembly. I unfortunately cannot share the file. Any help is appreciated! Are there some Chrome settings I could use? Maybe something is being throttled?
Since then though, I split the 2d from the 3d, and OS has made impromvents under the hood to increase drawing performance, and I haven't had any issues since. I long got rid of the Dell and only use M1 and M2 Macs now.
