|Speed Pak Configuration for Assemblies:
Speedpak, Solidworks new large assembly performance enhancement, is the one and only shining star of the 2009 version.
Speedpak creates a simplified representation of an assembly without losing references. If you work with very large and complex assemblies, using SpeedPak can significantly improve performance while working with assembly and its drawing.
With this,we can create a simplified configuration in an assembly that only fully loads the faces or bodies that you want it to. The concept is that you allow only mating features to be loaded into memory, allowing for much faster top-level assembly performance.
When we would like to insert complex large assembly into a higher level assembly we have to use speek Pak to improve the performance of large assembly.
Speed pak is a subset of parts and faces of an assembly which we create in the configuration manager.Because of only a subset of parts and faces is used,memory usage is greatly reduced,which can increase performance of many operations.
