Slow performance with 3d effect illustrator

Hi, 

 

I have noticed that the loading time for even simple changes/adjustments are taking a very long time when using 3d effects, I am talking about several seconds (4 or 5). I never encounted this performance/lag with any program or - to stay relevant - with any other effect. Besides, Illustrator is taking no more than 10% of my ram. 

 

Does anyone have the same problem, or in anyway a solution?

 

Thanks in advance! Kind regards, Josh

Outline Text, Cut

Effects> Transform.(45 angle). Then Expand.

Shape Builder (+Op) minus.

 

Fills.

 

BTW, I random recolor as I work.

Often times I do _v1,_v2_v3 as I work.

Well labeled Layers.

Can walk back if needed for edits.

Please show the 3D object.

Is it complex, does it have self overlapping shapes?

Hi, 

 

It aint complex at all. I added an attachment so you can take a look. 

 

It is as simple as a double text with 3d effect.

 

To be honest. I dont know what you mean with overlapping shapes.. It has a text over text though.

And this is the font that looks that way? Or a pattern you applied?

Which 3D effect did you use?

I applied a pattern on the font to create this. 

 

Is it already too complex to handle?

Did you use 3D extrude and bevel or 3D rotate?

Hi, 

 

As I use the Illustrator in Dutch, I needed to look it up. It seems like I used extrude and bevel.

Then it can't work. Most probably you made it very thin. It will produce self overlapping, rendering issues and whatnot. Use Rotate.

I remember viewing that tutorial some years back.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5QeoXNdk7A&mv=social&mv2=owned_social&fbclid=IwAR3EFkqVP0GOhFmZre5R...

 

Don’t remember how they constructed.

I used Fills. No pattern swatches, no masking, no overlaps. Outline Type

Did the 3D Rotate. Expanded.

Lastly, did the 3 layers. See image below.

 

With 3D Rotate, I have no lag as you asking. I checked my file again today.

Presently using Mac OS Catalina, Illustrator CC 2019

Hi, 

 

Thank you very much for trying it out yourself and the provided feedback! I´ll try it again with the method you used. 

 

Let me try it today. I will let you know if this worked out.

 

Edit: I am very curious though how you make those lines in the letters without swatches, mask. I can not find any other solution. How did you do this?
