Efficient way to clone complex geometry

I need to render a scene with hundreds of clones of fairly complex model (a million of polygons or so). Is it possible? And if so, what are the most efficient approaches?

Yes, you can do it. You need to check the "render instances" box in the cloner. That, in effect, gives you all of the clones with the memory footprint of just one clone.

Adam,
Thank you as usual.
I was aware of this option, but did not realize it was that significant.
