That's a CAD document. Those tend to be crap.Too many points (71000 in this case) hundreds of text objects.

Maybe ask for a better document.

Thank you. I've always suspected those docs were problematic, but we've recently moved from mac to PC and didn't get good enough machines apparently.

 

Is there a way to clean up the amount of points?

I don't think I'll get better files from them any time soon. (I will try though)

It's a dieline and usually those shouldn't be altered.

 

But of course you could try the simplify funcion. It might not reduce this, because the real issue with CAD files is that those dashed lines are really single paths for each dash. Maybe the (commercial) plugin VectorFirstAid can improve it. They have a trial period so you can check it out.

 

I don't know how much precision you need when working with it, so maybe it helps if you do not open it, but instead place and link it.

That app looks amazing. Maybe when the economy turns around they will open the wallet again.

The illy simplify/cleanup things didn't seem to help 😞

I am now rethinking, and will take a trip to the guys making these dielines to see if they are any options at export for them.

 

thanks for your insight!

Unfortunately there's not a lot I could do. The file brought my system to a screeching halt as well.
