I have encountered a very interesting problem with one of my section views while trying to export it to AutoCAD.  First, the program gave me an out of memory message error.  So, we "upped" the RAM in my computer from 2.5G to 4G, cleared the hard disk of any clutter, and tried again.  This solved most of the issues although it is still extremely slow; approximately 1.5 to 2 hours per section view. All but one of the sections exported without running out of memory.  The view that isn't working has no settings that vary from the others that did work.  I followed the same process of creating the section, then eliminating any reference plane or lines that might be showing in the visibility graphics menu, and exporting.  I did this on 6 other sections and they all worked but then one just would not.  I tried putting a new section view very near but not in the exact location of the view that wasn't exporting and had the same problem.  I tried reversing the direction in which the section was working and this worked.  However it isn't the desired section.  The only thing I can come up with is that the model is too large for my computer to handle all at once?  But I am not sure.  The other thing I thought about trying, after reading other people's issues and threads, is ungrouping things might speed up the process.  I don't know if grouping things is causing the out of memory error though.  I tried also turning off model components in the view that aren't visible anyway, that might just be adding to the file size.  But this didn't work either.  Has anyone else run into this problem?  Is there anything I should be doing?  How can I make this work?  Thanks everyone.
