Large Overbuilt UDT vs Folders of UDTs

I have some large UDT’s that contain multiple instances of other UDT’s. These instances can be enabled or disabled on whether the specific instance has them. The idea is that the potential max number is encapsulated there.


  • 20 UDT’s

If you disable one of the subUDT’s, are all processing / resource usages disabled for that? In other words, is there a disadvantage to having a large UDT with sub UDT’s disabled? (Other than having a lot of stuff to look in Designer)

I would prefer to keep things in UDT’s, but if it is going to chomp resources up… maybe I need to structure it with folders instead… opinions? Thank you.
