I recently installed Solidworks 2017-2018 Education edition. When i open the planes and origin are not visible and i can't sketch. when i enable open GL it works. What is the problem i am facing.
Unsupported video card. Just keep using Software OpenGL setting. Should be no issue for a student.
Thank you for your reply. But my friends use a similar video card but that works fine.
check the SolidWorks sight for an approved driver? that should get you going if others are using the same card.
Tried it but my video card is not listed in the solid works site.
can you find out what driver you friend has. that may help.
You have received advice from some VERY experienced SolidWorks users. It is very well known that SolidWorks only supports drivers from their website. Either do as David Matula suggested and match your driver with your friend's or do as Josh Brady suggested and re-enable Open GL.
And you may say "Thank you" to both David and Josh for providing assistance. Their time is VERY valuable.
THANKS. The appraisal district here in the local county does not think anyone's time is more valuable than theirs if you happen to have to deal with them.
Student versions and computers....kind of sucks you need a $3500 computer to run a program that is good for the years that you are in school. Still saving my pennies to be able to get the computer and a copy of SolidWorks.
