    Simulation Crashes when viewing cut plot

    John Bulzacchelli

      Hey everyone,


      I'm hoping I can get some help with a problem I am having with Flow Simulation.  I can run simulations with no problem, but when I go to view my results in a cut-plot, Solidworks freezes instantly.  I have tried several different studies, both simple and complex models and the problem persists.


      I am on a  Windows 8.1 laptop with quad 1.8 GHz i7-4500U processor, 8 GB RAM, and 1 GB NVIDIA GT 745M GPU.  I know it is not the best solution to run CFD/FEA studies, but up to this point I have been able to run pretty complex models with no problem!


      Any help appreciated!

          Bump for help - still having problem!


          Is there a way to generate a crash report so I can supply some more information?


          I have run Solidworks Rx and I am not seeing any problems.  I also ran benchmark and got these results:
