While you are right for the geometric algorithms, the memory management
algorithms can become an issue quickly, too.
Just out of curiosity I tried my good 'ol CAD package as well. In the
first attempt it struggled on as few as 500 balls (exact geometry, no
faceting) already. The software's memory settings were fine to work on
a complete front car body recently ...
Some more attempts got me to about 4000 balls when I gave up due to
increased computation time. There should be a way into the 10000 balls
area but computation is estimated to several hours ...
