SWX has become very slow after all lines are highlighted only command is active. Please watch the video.
It's hard to find out from the video clip
Need to see the part and your computer spec
What do you want to see?
Can you post your part here so I can try to duplicate the issue - Might be it's not SW, it's something else ?
Here is the part. I have same problem with other parts as well. Only thing is activating time is different.
you modeled this part in 2018 which I can't open here (still 2017) - need to try it at home
Here is the IGS file.
I'd better try with a SW file, not a dummy solid which I don't know what feature causes the problem
It is slow even with simplest case
Can you run performance Evaluation to see which feature has more time to rebuild ?
I`made extrude surfaces and situation the same, SWX doesn`t like intersections
Did you try on actually SW file or dummy solid (iges) from Maha?
Maha, cut cavities as usual (by means cut feature), without rib or thick surface method.
Switch off dynamic highlighting
and anti-aliasing on display tab for sure))
Thank you for very good example, it saves a lot of my time for big assemblies
Maha`s SW part and my own
Can you check for me one more thing
Does the file size increase each time you save it without adding any extra feature?
This is very likely a graphics card/driver issue and also very likely the cause of your crashes in this thread:
SWX 2018 Crushes
I do not have any performance issues with dynamic highlighting with your part on my machine.
If SOLIDWORKS was running OK before, it very well could be that a Windows 10 update changed your graphics driver and is now causing problem. Since you are not running a supported card, the best advice is to get a supported card and driver installed.
But, to potentially confirm that it is the graphics card/driver causing the problem, try running SOLIDWORKS Rx and on the first page, run the safe mode option that runs SOLIDWORKS in Software OpenGL. That runs the graphics routines on the CPU instead of the graphics card. It will be slower than most graphics cards (even unsupported ones) but is useful to troubleshoot whether it is indeed the graphics card/driver causing the problem.
Maha, read this document from 26 page, unfortunately they forgot to mention about dynamic highlighting

Dynamic highlight should not cause performance issues UNLESS you are working on an extremely large assembly or if there is a problem with the graphics card/driver. In general, it should be almost instantaneous. SOLIDWORKS is VERY hard to use with dynamic highlight turned off because it is hard to know what faces, edges you are selecting in the graphics area and causes mis-picks. The solution to this problem is to figure out why the dynamic highlight is slow and to fix that, not to turn off dynamic highlight as that will just cause an unpleasant experience in using the software and making it less useful.
Thank you, I`ve checked my 5000 parts assy, selection of edges and faces for this model is excellent.
Maha, lets go)))

Do you mean selection of edges and faces is excellent with dynamic highlight off? It will certainly select things and fast, but in cases where things are close together, you won't be able to tell what it is going to select and it will be frustrating.
Why are you turning dynamic highlight off? Because it is slow on the models shown in this thread? If so, there is something wrong with your graphics card and driver. You should test it using the software OpenGL safe mode I suggested earlier in the thread and if dynamic highlight is not slow like it is normally for you, then you should look into the graphics card/driver. You VAR can help troubleshoot that if you cannot on your own.
Jim, everything is OK, I don`t feel any difficulties in selection of vertex, edges, faces or sketch segments (distance between them is 2..4mm).
Everything is OK with my notebook too.
Excuse me, I didn`t want to say this, but I think something wrong with your software, and not only in this question.
And second, each time you wrote about that we need to ask VAR about everything, OK, but when I take time to work, you have to understand that we have to work as you to earn money. I cant ask my VAR several times per day about SW bugs. I have to work. I hope you understand.
Updating could be a problem. Recently I updated to SWX to SP1 this could be a problem because it worked before well. I do not know whether it is caused by Windows 10 update because some time Windows 10 updates takes place without any notification.
Also I run SWX on OpenGL after VAR recommendation.
Quite a bit has changed since 2012. I wouldn't necessarily use that document as the end all, be all. I would bet there are some graphics cards/drivers acting up.
I`ll check two different machines tomorrow. In any case for any machine it`s not normal that simple part slow down SWX
Hey Maha,.. maybe something is running in the background...while you are trying to do the indent,.. can you also test/run Task Manager and note your Process and Performance or take a screen shot of those process/performance windows?
..and, also try a full shutdown/boot and test/note the difference?
(anyhow, I have no problems with this and I have a unregistered card and using a registry hack)
btw... I recreated the file (also added draft) in 2014 and tested thru 2017sp4.1 (file attached)
Retrieving data ...
