I am using SW 2012 and have encountered a weird problem: When trying to intiate a 3D Sketch the SW page goes transparent revealing the Desktop complete with all icons. This only happens with the 3D sketching, not the regular sketching.
Any ideas ??
what graphics card are you using?
service pack of solidworks?
is this a new issue or has it always been this way?
It is a new issue. Nvidea Quadro FX1800. Windows 7-64bit. SW2012 SP01
first thing i'd do is confirm graphics card i the issue by using the software opengl option
then disable at the os level
as per that other post, it sounds like nview on a specific driver version causes the issue so it is possible you updated to that driver at some point which is causing it. looks like you can go back to an older driver or disable it. the tests above would isolate/confirm the cause.
See this thread to see if it solves your problem:
Ah Ha ! I had acquired a second monitor in Dec that was a wide screen model and had downloaded a new Nvidia driver "nView 140.84".
I sent the wide screen monitor back as it was forcing my 'narrow' screen monitor into the wide screen mode which made for wasted screen area on the narrow monitor. I just uninstalled the "nView 140.84" and all is good now. Thanks all for you help ! David
