Hi Henrik,

the PREV input is there to allow you to add a previous aggregation as a base on top of which to aggregate new modules. However, as these modules are still computed in the aggregation process, using it will not make your code faster.

Currently, the best way to achieve aggregations made of large groups is to split the aggregation in smaller sub-areas with small overlaps, and aggregate them independently, always providing the last parts as starting points for the next aggregation. I can send you a file, if you are interested.

In the new version of Wasp (will release it hopefully this weekend) there is the possibility of setting a threshold on the Field component, which allows, depending on your field, to speed up calculations, of couse sacrificing the precision of the field approximation.
If you want to take a look, you can download the work in progess components on the Github page:

I am working on a "probabilistic" field aggregation, which should be much faster, but I am not sure of when I will have something usable. If you send me a PM with your email, I can keep you in the loop and let you know as soon as I have something.

Hello Andrea,

Currently im working on a project using muqarnas as element to aggregate. As you can see it needs a very high iteration number. Then I saw this PREV input that i wonder if it would help my work to become more smooth? Can u show me an example where u set up the PREV? Does it save the old parts somehow? What does it do?
