Combine elements incredibly slow or timing out

  • Hi

    I'm designing some fairly simple objects (bobbins for a spinning wheel) and having done the design for the ends I want to combine all the elements ready for slicing. However, combining the smaller elements is taking half an hour or so, and when I go to get all the components into one it doesnt appear to ever complete - I can leave it overnight with no success. Is there anything I can look for to speed it up? Its pretty pointless if I cant combine all the parts into one STL. Combining generally seems very hit and miss. Import 2 STLs and try to combine them : often this results in one disappearing. I want to like this tool but it just seems to not really work very well.
