I have Solidworks 2010 64 bit on win 7 @ 40gb of ram and 16core CPU @ 3.0 ghz each, solid state HD, quadro 4000... its a nice computer...
So i did the meshing for a linear static problem - it took about 15-20 minutes to solve..
then i hit run. nothing is happening except that soldiworks is using one full CPU core. for the last 30 mintues.
Is there anything i can do? i know meshing is not multithreaded but what is this run bottleneck...?
