|Very often complicated structure consists of big number of repeatable fragments.
There is very simple and elegant solution in NanoMaker that will allow you to overcome the problem of big files. Because you are trying to draw repeatable shapes just use hierarchical structures. To that end group repeatable elements in separate structure. Now, you can repeat this structure as many times as you need in your design as insertion and this will save resources and solve the problem with file size.
