I have seen some performance related graphs in release notes. Yesterday i created some Draft Arrays, and didn't notice much difference there, replicating geometry multiple times. Today i have run a couple of benchmark tests
, for fuse and cut. Unfortunately, at least not ATM, i can not confirm any noticeable speed gains. Maybe some speed improvements are related to:
- Option to suppress history generation to speed up Boolean Operations
- Option to simplify the result of Boolean Operation
But there is no technical description, on what that is about. AFAIK, we don't generate history and simplified result of BOA, that likely isn't something, one would in general use, maybe for some special use cases. At least that is how i read it. Looking back, from OCE times and up. BOA performance did constantly improve, was noticeable and measurable, multiple arguments support has been added.
In short, OCCT 7.4, compared to OCCT 7.3, i don't see much speed improvements ATM, regarding BOA in FreeCAD.
