CPU Only at 30% Capacity when Calculating
My CPU only works at about 30% capacity while calculating. Having to load a big file (~400 hectare field) often is cumbersome. Is there a way to speed it up?

In our new web based version, we will take advantage of multiple cores for the analysis tools. However, the landform design calculations are a lot more complex and difficult to spread to multicores although we are attempting to do this.
Thanks for the feedback. We will look into ways to improve this.
This is probably due to multicore processor in your computer and we would love to take advantage of all the cores but at the moment we are stuck with using only one core.
A 400-ha field is quite large for OSD to handle smoothly. You may want to consider cutting the field into sections to make it easier.

We also recommend you do initial calculations at larger grid size eg 60 or 90ft and then when you have a design that looks close, do a final calculation at 30ft if possible.
