Heavy rst file, 45 gb, reason

      Hi, could you please advise why the rest file can be so heavy, 45 GB?


      Can the reason be mesh? Or that it is transient? The cases for 4 point lift,upending have smaller weight.


      Thank you for help

      You probably have a lot of points of results. Reduce the "Minimum Substeps" or Output Controls - from "All Time Points" parameter to another option.

      MTBXC has the right approach, reduce the number of output time points. Doing that you could reduce the file size by a factor of 10.


      You can cut the result file almost in half if you turn off output of Strain and only output Stress and Deflection.
