Yes, unfortunately, RE of large models is a very time-consuming operation. We are sorry it takes so long.
Nevertheless, we tested it also in other modeling tools and the results were similar. You write the RE of this database took a significantly shorter time in another tool. Could you please write us what tool it was? We will further check it out. Thanks in advance.
Probably, the selected options for RE can significantly influence the speed. For example, if you load only tables is a different thing than if you load also other data. TDM loads also indexes, comments, triggers, relationships, constraints, functions, views, procedures, user types etc.
One more note: After you reverse your large db to TDM, it is probable that the work with such a big model will be slower too. However, as we have experienced it is similar in other tools as well.
In any case, thanks very much for your feedback.
