We just recently moved from SolidWorks 2018 to SolidWorks 2020. On our desktops it's working fine out of the box, but we have a Dell Precision 7740 with a Radeon Pro WX 3200 GPU that's giving us issues. When trying to create a new part it just hangs; trying to interact with the window just brings up an error that SolidWorks is busy executing a… (Show more)

I've successfully been running Solidworks on Mac since 1998. I'm now using SW2020 on an iMac (32Gb RAM) with Catalina (OS10.15.7) and VMware Fusion (11.5.6). Has anyone successfully upgraded to Big Sur and Fusion 12 or 16? Gives me problems Thanks, Hans

Hi,   I've got a company laptop which runs with SW 2016. It's a great machine, Intel CORE i-9 processor, Quadro Graphics Card RTC 4000.   However when I plug it to another screen via HMDI, it flickes when I do zoom or orbit, resulting in having to use the Laptop 15'' screen all the time.   Anyone has similar issues?   Regards

Hey guys,   Has anyone found a provider of custom build workstations that is also based in Europe or at least delivers to Europe? In the US you have Purge, BOXX, Velocity,... but none ship to Europe     What is your go-to source for hardware, if you are in Europe and want to buy a verified SolidWorks machine?   Thanks, BJ

What is the Status Bar reporting when the OpenGL Display FrameCount registry key value is set to 1? What is happening under the hood during: - "Painting" - "Repairing" - "Rebuilding"?   Siddharth Palaniappan Alessandro Tornincasa Alessandro Tornincasa Alessandro Tornincasa

Hi, I've recently added a better, although not new, graphics card (Quadro M5000) to my system specifically to improve my SolidWorks performance. However when I start SolidWorks (only tried 2019 SP5.0) it runs on the old graphics card unless I disable that one first. I'm looking at "Nvidia GPU Activity" from the Nvidia system tray to tell me what… (Show more)

Click to view contentCPU cores, hyper-threading, bandwidth, APUs.. What are they? What does a CPU do? What do you as a SOLIDWORKS user need to consider when shopping for a CPU? The topic of CPU is very complex. For this post, I am going to sprinkle some interesting fundamentals and some realworld considerations.   CPU (Central Processing Unit)  is the brain of your… (Show more)

I thought maybe it was time to change my kindly HP 8560w to something newer. I found such offers (post-leasing). Does anyone work on it (worked)? In the last two laptops, I mainly ask about graphics card. I've always had something from the NVidia stable. I don't know how these AMD are doing. I am curious about your opinions.   Zbook 15 G3 Intel… (Show more)
