I have a model here. When I save it, it saves aprox 1k-25k a second. It is about 50Mbytes in size. Is there a reason why this takes so long to save?

Thanks

Umm, because it's so big? 50 megs for one file is really huge (for Lightwave meshes), so it's not that bad at all. Most likely it simply takes so long because LW needs to re-organize the data before writing the file. Assuming this is releted to your other post, you have to keep in mind that all that extra data (selection sets) will create its own chunks in the file and still needs to be associated with the more mundane stuff like simple point coordinates.
