Problem of slowness in the drawing process

      Hello, 

      I have a customer who has a big problem with slowness in drawing a large assembly, there are more than 2000 elements.
      There are a lot of fasteners but the customer has to keep them because he needs them for the BOM.
      If you wish, I can send you the assembly so that you can see.
      Do you have any tricks to limit the slowdown in the drawing sheet?

      Hello NOVACAD

      Please try the below solutions and let me know if it works for you:

      1. Update your graphics drivers directly from the manufacturer website.
      2. Clear your user settings from File > SpaceClaim Options > Advanced > Reset All User Settings.
      3. Make sure your computer is using the main graphics card for SpaceClaim. You can press F9 within SpaceClaim to check what graphics card is being used. 

      Sometimes, especially with laptops, Windows might assign a low-performance graphics setting to SpaceClaim.

      This problem can be corrected from the graphics card "control panel" (right-click on your main desktop background), or by installing drivers to make the PC recognize your graphics hardware.
      Then, go to the NVIDIA Control Panel (by right-clicking on your desktop > NVIDIA Control Panel), go to the Manage 3D Settings tab. 

      There, under Program Settings, make sure you Add SpaceClaim (Discovery SpaceClaim 2020 R2) as a program that is using the best specs of the NVIDIA driver. 
      I have found that performance suffers if you do not go into the driver control panel and make sure SpaceClaim is using the driver to its fullest capacity. 

      If you continue to run into problems, please send me a recent SpaceClaim log file (from the error session) and a dxdiag report.

      The SpaceClaim log files can be found in C:UsersAppDataRoamingSpaceClaimLog Files.
      (Sometimes the AppData folder is hidden. To find it, type %appdata% into the file path and press enter)

      Hi Subashni, I tried to realize all your manipulations. Spaceclaim uses well my graphic card Nviadia quadro P 4000. I have updated the drivers of the card, I have also changed my user settings to reset them to zero. But it hasn't changed, it's still very slow in the drawing. Here is the dxdiag and the log file attached. Best rergards Yohann

      Hello NOVACAD

      I see that using the Combine tool to cut is causing some surface inconsistencies.

      Let me check with my team to find out what could be causing this.
