Part Studio is really slow - Making it impossible to work.

Designing a speaker. Due to the large amount of extruded circles, it has created a real lag, making it impossible to work. Does anyone have any advice for me on how to get around this?

    @tom_meades there could be any number of contributing factors depending on what you mean by 'lag' (slow). 
    If it's graphics rotation performance, that's entirely a function of your graphics card and we can give you several pointers. 
    Picking/selecting is a function of your machine speed and browser speed (chrome is faster if you have a dedicated graphics card)
    If you are referring to regeneration time, that's on us. Did you use a face pattern or a feature pattern? Face pattern is faster because then end condition is not re-evaluated for each hole. 
    Can you suppress the pattern and only unsupress it later (or even better move the pattern to the bottom (or near the bottom of the feature tree))?
    You can always share the document with support and they would be happy to look at it. 
    I hope this helps :)
