> Hello Mr. Lee,
> lightweight is a special feature in the CAD-Package SolidWorks. It is
> described that there is only the data loaded to display the file on the
> screen of SolidWorks. None of the other information telling SolidWorks how
> to build the part is loaded into memory.This allows the part to be loaded
> much more quickly, because only a small portion of the overall file has to
> be read into memory. This can have a huge impact on the time it takes to
> open an assembly file. An assembly might open in a few seconds instead of
> a few minutes.
> Mit freundlichen Grüßen
