The attached python script demonstrates a particularly difficult problem I'm trying to solve. I've tried this in SolidWorks 2009 x64 and it *eventually* creates the geometry but crashes while attempting to save as a STEP or STL file. I'm looking for recommendations on how I can speed up the process. The transverse cuts are completed rather quickly since the only intersections are with the rectangular block. The longitudinal cuts take a *very* long time (I'm not even sure if I can get one cut to finish, much less the remaining cuts). The longitudinal cuts cut through each of the 283 transverse cuts as well as the rectangular blocks.
