SpaceClaim Sharing Time

      I have created a geometry with a few surface elements and a significant amount of cable elements. When I finished the geometry I attempted to share it to the Modeler Program. When doing this, it took about 7.5 hours to complete the sharing.

      Along with this, my mesh is now taking 2 hours to complete, although it is a quite simple mesh.

      I was wondering if this "sharing" process is necessary for the model and if there were any suggestions on how to speed up the sharing and meshing processes. Thanks.

      If you need conformal mesh, you will need to do share topology in SpaceClaim.
      While doing share topology please check tolerance used. Please use tolerance so that it does not corrupt geometry.
      If there are many faces to be shared, it may take some time.
      Also please check geometry in SpaceClaim.
      Select geometry in structure tree --> Use right click --> Select Check Geometry. (Or Tools - Fault Detection in DM)
      The geometry should be error free to proceed.
      If geometry has any errors, please modify/recreate geometry at those places.

      Thank you for your response. When sharing the topology in SpaceClaim do I need to both set the share topology property to "shared" in the properties panel of the parent component; and also go under the Workbench tab and select share? Or do I solely need to do one or the other. As of now I have been doing both and when selecting share under the Workbench tab, that is what is taking 7.5 hours to complete.
      Also, how do I check tolerance used when sharing?
      Thank you.
