Now this is a real plea for help
, as things have gotten even worse as I duplicate more fixtures. I'm hoping someone out there can help me figure out what I'm doing wrong, or a work-around for this. The 160 PCBs we have in our large installation are in 10 columns of 16 PCBs each. First, I placed all of the fixtures into column one, then copied them to column two. Duplicating column one to column two took about 45 minutes. However, duplicating column two to column three took overnight (it hadn't finished after an hour or so before I left for the night).
The MadMapper project is here (would only let me attach files less than 256kB to this post):https://app.box.com/s/ip63ojqy9htkybn7mwoxvgj30jodtowm
What am I doing wrong? When MM is churning away duplicating the column, the Activity Monitor doesn't show high CPU or memory usage, so I'm not sure why it's taking so long? The current project is now up to 3 columns, but I need to get up to 10 columns, and I'm afraid of how long this could take to duplicate. My strategy is to copy two more columns to make 5, then copy all 5 to make 10. The mapping is working well to the actual hardware, but the duplicating of the fixtures is taking alarmingly long. I'm guessing there's something I'm not doing right?
