    Section Views causing SolidWorks to Crash

    Rhonda Jacobs

      Greetings!

       

      We are having an awful time creating section views in our drawings without crashing SolidWorks.  For example I would start a drawing, insert my standard views and start the section view process.  I would no more insert the section view and a crash would occur.  I found that if I created a sketch first and then inserted the section I wouldn't  crash as often but it did not solve the problem.  I also found that just editing the view would cause a crash as well as adding dimensions.  I spent some time with our VAR to work through what is causing this with no real luck.

       

      Is anyone else experiencing similar issues? 

       

      We are currently running SolidWorks 2015 SP 4.0 with hotfix #893815.

       

      Thanks!
