You want to do that by trial division? With a computer sieving a million billions trillions quadrillions primes per picosecond (to be clear, that is a computer larger than the size of the earth, and probably done by quantum technology, filtering 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 primes every second (that is a 1 followed by 6+9+12+15+12 zeroes) you still need about 10^12300000 years to finish it... (that is a 1 followed by about 12 million zeros, in base ten). People dont really realize how large these numbers are.
