Hi,

 

Why does the SolidWorks freeze for a good 5-10 minutes (Depending on the assembly or part) when I run a simulation before the solver starts? The PC specs should be more than enough to handle the load, and when I check, the CPU is running at about 25% capacity. When the solver actually pops up it finishes solving in about 30 seconds... Is there some option that I am missing here?

 

Thank you in advance!
