I downloaded your "mayan_haab_15_inch.scad" and the corresponding  DXF file. 
None of my computers could digest it.  I simplified it by loading the DXF
file into AutoCAD and exploding the POLYLINEs into simple line segments,
thus eliminating all the polygon point arrays and all of the union() and
difference() functions. Of course this makes the DXF file about 30 MEGS, but
it renders in about 2 sec.
