No problems here, 2016 SP1.0.
That does not sound pleasant. We haven't had anything major happen. Just a couple minor glitches.
Can't say I have this issue and I work with Ford and Freightliner cutaways all day. Some with up to 3000 parts per assembly. All in resolved mode. And thats not even taking into consideration the finished transit bus, which has upwards to 5000 parts depending.
No issues here, either. The one graphics glitch I was having on my Surface was resolved yesterday.
As with most major releases, you'll want to make sure that your parts have been updated to that major release. Perhaps running task manager overnight to upgrade everything would be helpful?
Are you running solidworks on a surface? I have a surface pro 3 that I do light solidworks design on as well. Havnt came across someone who also uses one.
I am running SolidWorks on a Surface. I know of some others that do as well, including some SolidWorks employees.
You notice i mentioned "multibodied" parts such as weldments and imported assemblies that we save as individual parts with multiple bodies.
Also, the problems are intermittent. Some parts and assemblies are fine, others aren't.
Imagine opening your 3,000 part assembly and only seeing about 1000. Time for a clean set of underwear.
Just saying be careful.
Are you doing multibodied parts such as weldments?
So far most of ours seem to be OK, but as luck would have it, the most important one I'm currently working on is a mess.
I am. I have 2016 on both my Dell laptop and a Surface Pro 3, neither exhibit the issues you describe.
As I mentioned, there have been known issues when going from one major version to the next and it's usually recommended that you upgrade your files.
Out of curiosity, after you've opened and fixed one of the affected assemblies, does the fix hold?
The fix doesn't hold:-(
Just spent an hour with SW and they put this at the highest priority. It's very weird and there isn't a lot of rhyme or reason as to what files it effects.
One fix, I thought, would be to set everything lightweight and then back to resolved. In every instance the computer crashed, but then on one assembly that was entirely imported, no parametrics or mates, it actually worked.
And when the parts aren't showing, they are there. my cursor highlights the edges, but not the surfaces??
I've replicated this on three computers here, Hawkridge has replicated it, as well as SolidWorks.
cant say I have any issues, found 2016 to be extremely stable so far.
I do use weldments in all of my assemblies, thats how I make my wall frames. I did have this problem though, I completely spaced it yesterday. It ended up being a graphics driver. Im running with a quadro K4000 and the SW reccomended driver was bad. I contacted my VAR who couldn't figure it out so I downloaded the most recent version and I haven't had any problem since. Accept for SWRx popping up telling me to check my system all the time.
As Shane mentions, this sound graphics related. Have you tried different drivers?
Thanks, yes, I have the same graphics card, and yes, I did install the latest approved driver.
Even when I run SW in Open GL mode, the problem still occurs. Also ran off of the alternate video card (the built-in one) and it still did it!!!
So, yes, there is some sort of graphics issue! Just don't know how to resolve it and the VAR and SW hasn't been able to figure it out either.
Another clue is that I would change the display settings, the sliders that change the resolution of the graphics in the options, and that would cause certain components to disappear or reappear!!!
15 years and 50,000 hours of SW and never seen anything like this!
