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?
