This should be at lears 6 sketches - one external contour, 3 for the holes that can be linear patterned, one for the longer hole and one for all other holes. There are 474 constraints in that sketch. What number would you consider too much?
To be honest it shouldn't matter if there where 10 or 10e6 constrains
And no this can't be 6 sketches (wel it can off course) since my lasercutter only except dxf files so it would be handy if I can export it as one file instead of 6 different ones
I understand your point btw but I draw from the POV from machining, so one sketch that's gonna be laser or watercutted (or lathe work if it's round) for the base material, holes or shapes that are gonna be machined afterwards I draw as separate steps so my drawing tree contains the same steps as the production steps.

NormandC has stated a limit of approximately 100 constraints for FreeCAD models, and I think this is still a very good value.
There is a big difference in what constrain type uses for system resource, just connecting dots doesn't do anything but using a lot of == does, if I don't do == but set true measurement for those objects the system doesn't slow down (no matter if it are lines or arcs) so it's not the number of constrains but the used type, can't it be that == is leaking memory or triggering a constant calculation loop or something weird?
ps: modified post with build info, forgot that sorry.
