Why is it taking a long time to add elements?

Large Model Tips:

Make Auto-Rebuild inactive. Then experiment. You can continue to add many elements successfully when rebuild is inactive. Use Rebuild-Now every 4-5 commands to rebuild.

Number-of-Steps : Make 90 steps, or even less. You do not need many steps as you build the model.

Show Solids in Mechanisms : You do not need to show the Solids to add elements, to review the kinematics or to calculate Force.

Image Quality : If you need to show Solids, then experiment with the Image-Quality. You may need to save and re-open the model to update the Image-Quality. Do this when there are many Solids in the model.

Spin-Box tool. In each dialog-box, do not use the Spin-Box tool. The model must re-calculate after each click, in a similar way to the Rebuild-Now button. Use your keyboard to enter new values in each data box.
