CAD import takes 30 minutes!

I’m evaluating Omniverse and I just tried a medium sized STEP file we have and it took over 30 minutes (I walked away after a while so I’m not 100% sure)…

The same file imports in Rhino in about a minute, and in Unreal about the same.

Anyone else experienced extreme slowness of CAD imports in Omniverse? Is this common?

Also, during all that importing time, the application is completely frozen up!


@EDRobert - I’m fairly sure you will not have this issue in the next release as we have changed the back end converter. I tested a 96mb step file and it imported in a few seconds. The older importer does indeed go way too slow (I’m still waiting for it to finish!).
