    Hey I know this is not the answer you'll want to hear but after beating my head against the wall dealing with ductwork and floorplans for a huge hospital, I can tell you Illustrator just isn't cut out for it. I tried cleaning the CAD files that I imported into Illustrator using Astute Graphics software. I tried exporting the CAD files to PDF using various settings (like lowering DPI) and many other things.

    After over a year trying to figure out how to work with these files that just take forever to import and clean and forever to edit, I ended up using Sketchup to work with the CAD files and export the ductwork using Sketchup.

    As a bonus using Sketchup made it easier to fill in ductwork, color it, filter it by tags etc. Overall it took a job that took over 40+ hours trying to shoehorn the CAD/PDF files into an Illustrator workflow down to about 6 hours in Sketchup. I even tried alternative vector editing software such as Inkscape, Affinity etc. Nothing could handle these massive ductwork files. Nothing that is except Sketchup. I never in a million years though I'd be doing 2D ductwork graphics in Sketchup instead of Photoshop or Illustrator, but here we are.

    It is not as straightforward as it may sound :) We have been working to take advantage of threads and other hardware such as GPU/Video RAM in places where it can make a higher impact. We are prioritizing areas that are slow instead of making a generic change and destabilizing the product. Product stability is the top priority for us and we have been consistently trying to improve it. We want to move with caution and make changes without compromising on the quality. Hope this helps.

    We are at about 6 years since this was requested. It is the 5th most requested upgrade to Adobe's software. I have a $5,000 custom built PC that runs circles around anything I throw at it. That is anything with the exception of Adobe Illustrator. When I open customer PDF files exported from AutoCAD and try and extract the vectors to separate layers it's just impossible. I click on something and wait forever for it to register. Utilizing only 1 thread for the bulk of the work is absolutely ridiculous. This is what most everyone feared about the subscription based model that they strong armed everyone in to by not offering upgrades to new versions as software used to be. Adobe has collected years worth of subscriptions from countless users and can't be bothered to use that to actually upgrade the software to solve this issue. They have you on the hook and they have you perpetually paying for a product and have ignored your requests to make this software utilize a computers full capacity for 6 years. Thank you Adobe for confirming our fears were not unfounded...

    Please God, we need this so bad. I use so many PDFs generated from AutoCad and every time I try and separate the walls, ductwork etc to new layers it takes absolutely forever and my task manager says it's using little to no GPU and only 13 percent of my CPU processing power. Please, this is the most critical thing I could imagine for this software. I can't believe this hasn't been worked on since multi threaded CPUs came into existence.
