Tip of the day

Today I was working with corridors on the subdivision that I am working on. I typically like to view the surface of my street design with the object viewer. As a default I have my contours, tin and points turned on for model view in the surface styles properties. Since my corridor is over 3 miles long, which also includes 2 roundabouts, 3 cul-de-sac's and 3 intersections, it has become really slow when I rotate, pan and zoom in the object viewer. I noticed today that if I turn off my points style options for model view, the object viewer performs 10 times faster and smoother. In addition, my hardware acceleration options is also turned off.  I just thought I would share this with yall. Have a great afternoon.
