Should sectioning take a long time?

Tony_C_Tony_C_ Member Posts: 264 PRO
OS seems to not like when I section large assemblies.

I can't tell if it's hung up and frozen or if it just takes a reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally long time to compute my section, which it never completes. 

The one I'm doing now has been going on for 7mins+.

The only option I have to get out of the command is to refresh the browser. 

Anyone else have this problem?

This is the drawing.  There's quite a few ICE parts and many sub assemblies. Not sure if that's the cause.
