Description

This macro is to help you find, what features cause long delays in updates to the project. It performs a recompute, measuring the time it takes to recompute each feature.

How to use

This macro requires FreeCAD no less than 0.17.10644

Save the macro to a file.

1. Open your project

2. Right-click an object in model tree, pick "Mark to recompute"

3. Run this macro.

A progress bar will appear. As each object is recomputed, a line is printed to Report View, containing the time and the label of the object. If any object fails to recompute, the macro will display an error message and terminate the process.

Post-processing results

The output of the macro will be interleaved with general messages produced by recomputing features. It generally looks like this:

Recomputing... (time in seconds, label)
Sketcher::setUpSketch()-T:0
Sketcher::Solve()-DogLeg-T:0
	0.00999999046326	Sketch - master section
	0.0199999809265	Clone of Sketch - master section (2D)001
Sketcher::setUpSketch()-T:0
Sketcher::Solve()-DogLeg-T:0
	0.00999999046326	Sketch013
Sketcher::setUpSketch()-T:0
Sketcher::Solve()-DogLeg-T:0
	0.00999999046326	Sketch011
	0.0	Clone of Sketch - master section (2D)
Sketcher::setUpSketch()-T:0
Sketcher::Solve()-DogLeg-T:0
	0.0	Sketch008
	0.130000114441	LinearArray
Sketcher::setUpSketch()-T:0
Sketcher::Solve()-DogLeg-T:0
...

The result lines have an easy signature to separate them off: they start with a tab. So, if you copy-paste the whole chunk to a spreadsheet program, generic messages will end up in column 1, while the results are in columns 2 and 3. So, you can sort by column 2, to get a nice table like that:

0.59100008	Slice
0.352999926	Populate LinearArray with Compound
0.160000086	CompoundFilter
0.138999939	Cut
0.130000114	LinearArray
0.108999968	Fusion
0.069999933	Moved CompoundFilter
0.067000151	Module - spokes
0.029999971	Sweep
0.019999981	Clone of Sketch - master section (2D)001
0.010999918	ArrayFilter003
...

(For MS-Excel, pasting right after copying text from report view doesn't split it into columns, don't know why... pasting the text to Notepad and re-copying it from Notepad and pasting to excel helps.)

FC version
