So SP1.0 is coming out & it's time I need to make a decision whether we update to 2015
How's the performance?
Is it stable?
Any critical bugs?
Favourite new feature?
Looking for both positive & negative feedback
Other than simulation express being broken (there is a workaround to fix it), it's good for me. Stable and no other bugs found, nothing new and fancy (features) for myself.
I haven't updated yet but the only thing I remember seeing here on the Forum is an issue with placing multiple points when using the Hole Wizard. It's supposed to be fixed with sp 1. I intend to go to SW2015 then, though I might wait to make sure that issue is taken care of first.
2015 is noticeably slower. I have one assembly that used to work just fine in 2012, when we upgraded I have to wait 3-5 minutes after a command. The cursor just sits and spins. Once again I will be giving the lowest rating possible for a new release. In 2012 I went through the same growing pains until I SWX released an updated driver. I've already updated the drivers but will have to check again to see if they released anything newer.
I haven't noticed any slowdown with 2015. Are you also seeing problems with files started with SW2015, or just in this assembly where you jumped 3 versions?
My co-workers are telling me they're seeing the same issue and slower performances with everything, old and new assemblies.
While we've experienced slowdowns across our network, I've not had any slowdowns locally on any of the machines I use; a Dell T1700, a Dell M4300 and a SurfacePro 3. And, the slowdowns are strictly related to saving files, not performance while using SolidWorks.
Also, SolidWorks doesn't release drivers, they simply test and approve them. What are the specs on your machines? Are they all the same or are you running multiple models?
We have Dell Precision computers ranging from T3500 up to T3610. 8GB of RAM, Quadro FX 1800 to Firepro V4900.
