I work for a company that mainly sells city and state art transfer-printed, etched, engraved, etc. onto dinnerware.
Most of the time i deal with the art, personally, i see that it contains anywhere from 15,000-30,000 paths but have no problems working with them quickly . However, one of our artist's illustrations always has a tremendous amount of paths in the 150,000-250,000 range...and i wanted to see if there was anything i could do.
What I have tried
- Fix bad plug-in global object names(no idea what this meant, just saw it here
- Object>Path>simplify (made sure to not include text outlines. Has never worked in a year's worth of attempts.)
- Object>Path>Clean up : says it isn't needed.
Image below is of Sixteen pieces of artwork for a square dinner plate. Here is a link to a single piece of artwork from that product, so you can take a look and hopefully help me out.
Do you see anything i can correct in the file supplied?
