How large should a .blend file be if it’s comprised of a large number of shiny metal rods such as a simple rolling rack with wire shelves similar to what you’d find in a grocery store displaying bread? I modeled it in another program and imported it into Blender. This simple object is 1.8 megs.
I haven’t yet found a way to reduce file sizes yet. Is there such a way to do it? Bear in mind that every one of those wire rods is still comprised of triangles and not quads. I’m not editing them so if it’s possible I’d rather not take the time to convert the tens of thousands of rods that my project will have in it.
