Solidworks Sudent 2011 on GTX 470

Question asked by Guillaume Chataignier on Oct 21, 2011

Hello !


my teacher give me the key for the SDK student version 2011.


my problem is :

when i create big assembly, or big model ( like a fractal cube... useless but interesting. ) my PC lags. and sometimes Solidworks freezes for 10 minutes.


i notice that my GTX 470 stay at 1% of utilization : it means that my graphic card is no used by Solidworks.


so, Can i use it legally to make solidworks go faster ? ( gtx 470 is a consummer version )

or is it reserved for professional graphic card like Quadro FX ???


thank you



( sorry for my English, but i'm French ^^ )
