Guess I was spoiled with 2013. If your system goes down, either you are losing money, or you are losing the company you work for money. I personally would not use them for anything business related, and would be very leery of using them for anything else with one exception: if you have an existing install and want to see what all the RealView fuss is about, you can use it as a sort of preview to see if you should spring for a workstation card on your next build. Not rebuilds, not rendering, not simulation. On a Dell notebook you will enter the bios by holding down the f2 key on start-up.
High performance systems typically use an Intel Core i7 or Xeon processor. So for the extra 1000 i feel like im future proof for at least a week or so. Try to minimize the number of memory boards. It's great for everything from compressing video or rendering video processing effects to working with encrypted files to doing fluid dynamics simulations. Hardware wise they might be pretty similar, but they have entirely different drivers which makes a big difference in their performance. Do they provide features that you can't get without the special drivers? This also means that each feature in SolidWorks is based upon the last feature in a parent-child relationship. You will see two cards enabled under the Display Adapter settings.
I will do my best to edit this post as necessary to reflect any errors found or incorporate new information as it comes along, but you also probably shouldn't base a potentially multi-thousand dollar purchase solely on what some guy on reddit said. Then select your Graphics Card Vendor and Graphics Card Model. Picture showing Dell system bios example only! Derogatory or demeaning remarks are not tolerated in this learning community. Really, I think that's the motivation. Can someone tell me why Sata 6 is not showing and also why the Ram is showing incorrectly. Ensure you get a workstation grade system, which will come with a high-quality motherboard.
Hi All: Are any of you having the same bad experience with Solidworks 2016 that I am. Now it seems to work again, but I lost a good hour farting about trying to make it work, on a ten second modeling task. When solid works says n-vidia 560 do they mean 5600 series or what? You are better off saving assemblies as parts with the exterior faces or exterior components option instead of all components. That factor can be enhanced by using the Solidworks partnered drivers as well. This release seems to be operating pretty much the same.
We have provided a for these registry edits for your convenience. It's not the cards that are over qualified, many chipsets nowadays are the same for both types of graphics cards. Read through our for more detail. Go with whatever you have and live with a couple of bumps in the road. We do have very large assemblies 50K+ parts.
The only thing the graphics card effects in Solidworks are stability and visual performance—framerate when rotating a model, anti-aliasing, lighting, that sort of thing. What this means is that each line or arc has a number of parameters that determine both its own geometry as well as its relationship with other elements in the model. Alternatively click the link to find the driver manually. When dealing with large assemblies, workstation cards will perform significantly better than the equivalent gaming-focused card—although the gaming-focused card will still probably work fine in most scenarios, all things being equal. If you are making money using SolidWorks, the added stability, support and application specific performance will almost certainly offset the higher initial cost of a workstation card. If you have an older version of SolidWorks, especially in a production environment, it is probably a better idea to keep using whatever Windows version you are currently running for maximum stability. .
I'll try to lay out the facts and show a few benchmarks for you, but be warned that this seems to be one of those divisive topics that emerges where you have a group of slightly nerdy people talking about something, like emacs vs. Though it does depend on budget constraints. If you slave away for The Man all day but need to occasionally take a few things home with you, it probably doesn't make sense to base a purchase on such infrequent use. Unless you are doing some sort of design work in which realtime shadows are super important some kinds of industrial design, I guess. Screen redraws don't help, reboots don't help and then suddenly it all works again. Hardly ever work with assemblies these days.
Since first beginning to learn this software a few years ago, I have seen the same questions posted again and again in both the and subreddits, as well as occasionally in or. Money is really not a big deal here. While going from dual-core to quad-core will see a dramatic boost, moving from quad-core to 8-core will be a bit less though still a good improvement. Go to Video settings and expand to Switchable Graphics and un-check the Enable Switchable Graphics on the left. There is absolutely no good reason to buy or switch to anything other than this. I cant find what sofmod version this goes to. Been browsing the interwebs and this subreddit for info on exactly how graphics cards impact Solidworks, but I keep hitting contradictory information.
Applications and reference sites that can be used to help determine the overall performance of different hardware configurations. The suggested version can sometimes differ from the most recent driver from the card manufacturer. At least verification from startup is all im looking for. It doesn't take long to adjust to, but constantly re-learning where all your buttons went and what they look like now is annoying as hell. Take the following steps to run through this process. A registry edit should be completed only if all other options are attempted. Or you can suppress features in your parts that are not required, like radius and fillet features.
Seems memory is not sufficient either as stated before. Just part files, fixing some geometry with surfacing, etc. It might not be as convenient as your own computer, but it's also already paid for through your tuition. Very roughly, gaming cards push pixels as fast as they can while workstation cards push them as accurately as they can. It would help to know the Solidworks version, driver, and graphics card used.
