ich konnte die datei in 2,5 minuten laden, wenn ich freecad unter linux mit höchster priorität laufen lasse. (auf einem 7 jahre alten büro-pc)
wenn ich daraus mit part einen verbund mache und als fcstd abspeichere, läd die datei nach freecad-neustart in 8 sekunden. das halte ich für brauchbar.

Ok I don't understand one thing, I don't know if it's a bug or if I just don't get it, but the exported svg looks like it has no panel or ribs, there's almost nothing there. To reproduce:
1. Create new glider
2. Export with "unwrap glider" tool
there are some schematics in the svg but not what I would expect. It's on FreeCad v0.19

Best to usw dxf-format. Thus should contain all the Panels.

OK another thing, when I put a diagonal rib and a single skin rib at the same time, it never outputs any plans. So I guess they don't work together. Or is it a bug?

I'm baffled by one thing (I'm on the stable branch): when I make the lowest gallery lines a bit longer (the ones that connect to the riser), the top of the gallery gets some "punk" artifacts. Looks like the top gallery lines are "reversed". Is it a bug or some underlying design limitation? I'm not sure what I'm looking at. Am I misunderstanding something about how to change the lines lenght?

you need to reset the location of the bottom-attachment point. Otherwise the total length of the given lines is too long. see this image:
