Hello, Downloaded layout-20230925-macOS-universal.dmg and run it on MacOSX Sonoma 14.3.1. 3D rendering of the same (relatively complex) structure takes much longer than on Windows machine. On Mac process time is 2500ms, while on Windows 4-5ms. Both machines are quite capable hardware wise. Please advise and Thank You!

Hi, what Mac Hardware are you using? For 3D rendering 3D acceleration of the graphic card is used. In case the 3D hardware is not correctly detected, it falls back and used the main processor instead. This will be by far slow as it is in your case. So we will need to dig into it on a similar hardware as you have to find the issue. Thanks for reporting it.
