Importing Textures and Rendering Time

    Hi! As much as I love using 2020 Design, I get really frustrated with the time it takes to do even a simple render once my design is full of imported textures. Is there anything I can do/check to speed this up?

    The image attached took 12 minutes to come down as Medium Quality and it’s still not great 🙁

    I see a huge increase in rendering time when I use the cloud library, or I suspect it is the cloud libraries.

    One of the things that I liked about 2020 was that I could make a style/color change and render it in a couple of minutes.

    But the last kitchen I did I used the JennAir cloud catalog and the render times are 10+ minutes. Unfortunately this was a client that wanted to see their changes as they asked for them.

    Hey Nicky and Chris,

    we have heard that certain items might be slowing down renderings from you guys.  🙂 Would it be possible to send us the system specs on your computers and the .kit files for a design or two that you are experiencing the slow renders with?  You can send them to [email protected] to my attention and I’ll shepherd them to the folks that need to see them so we can investigate any possible solutions.  The more detail you can provide us with the better.

    I was having some problems with long rendering times recently. I discovered that the issue seems to be with Kohler Kitchen sinks that have an attribute add-on faucet. The problem seems to be with any of the add-on faucets from the K-690 (Vinnata series).

    Whenever I use that faucet the renderings take a really long time.
