Slicing problems

Hello all,

Could anyone offer any advice on how to speed up the slicing process of 3D Systems' "Maestro"?
I am trying to zslice a 19" * 19" * 21" QuickCast pattern, and by my estimates it will about 7 days just to slice the darn thing. I believe I am running out of RAM and the disk swapping is slowing down the whole process. We are running an SGI Indigo2 R10000 w/256Mb RAM. The file in question is only about 16Mb in size and 335 500 triangles. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
