I am having problems with the graphics on the sketcher mode. Lines appear everywhere I place the cursor over when drawing a line. You can see an example on the Attachment. Any tips for this?
You need to prvovide your operating system info, your graphics card info and your SolidWork version before anyone can begin to help with a problem like this.
Thanks a lot for your help. That option solved the issue. Everybody was rigth about asking me about my hardware but since it is a certified computer with certified graphics card for most CAD software I didn´t considered that. By the way I have a DELL Precision M65 with Intel Core Duo@1.66GHz with Nvidia Quadro FX graphics card.
You probably have a bad driver. Check on the SW web site for the approved drivers for your machine. (Search for the Dell M65, not for the Nvidia card.)
On the other hand, I'm running the latest approved driver for my Dell desktop and still have lots of graphics issues when I run the 3GB switch (which I normally need to run to handle our parts and assemblies.)
Dell worked with Solidworks to provide an updated driver for the M65 and M90 systems that will support 32-bit versions of SolidWorks 2010. This same driver should work fine for SW2009. These new drivers are
Vista 188.8.131.5291 WinXP 184.108.40.20691
Go to http://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/videocardtesting.html and select Dell and the Vendor and then the Precision M65. Then select the appropriate driver and install. I'm not sure if these are even available from the Dell website.
Note: These are the LAST drivers for the M65 and M90.
