    Crash in Flow Simulation with FirePro W5000

    Matthew Paone

      Hi all,


      I'm wondering if anyone has seen the following problem before. I'm running SolidWorks 2012, SP 3.0, with Flow Simulation.


      I create a new part, which is a simple box-section channel.

      Save part.

      Create new Flow Simulation Project.

      Save part.



      However, if I go to Options -> System Options -> Performance then check Use Software OpenGL, the problem appears to disappear.


      I have a custom hardware setup:


      i7-4770k, overclocked to 4.5 GHz.

      Corsair H100i water cooler

      ASUS Maximus Gene VI MB

      Samsung 850 Pro Series 256GB SSD

      32GB (4x 8GB) G.SKILL TridentX F3-2400C10D-16GTX

      AMD FirePro W5000


      Has anyone seen this before?
