NX 11 CAM performance issues

Experimenter
Experimenter

First off I am new to the NX software and any insight will be great.

I am currently having an issue when selected features say to do Hole MIlling.

I get a long lag time between selections. After selecting one hole it just sits and thinks for 10-15 seconds before I am able to select the next feature. We upgraded the RAM in this computer with no benifit.

What part of the computer would affect this?(cpu,gpu ect.)

 

Thanks!

 

ps. I will say our GPU is a lower end product at the moment

How many faces does the body consist of?

Selecting a hole will create a machining feature in the background, which results in this delay.

The part its self is a very simple plate consisting of 20-30 drill holes and counter bores .
Would running the find features before hand improve this delay I am having?

There will be a short delay (couple of seconds, no more) when you pick the first feature.

After that, the recognition should be almost instantaneous unless you have a very complex part which doesn't seem to be the issue in your case.

 

Can you share the part so that we can validate if it's just your environment?

We work off of the server here and I just tried it working off of the SSD on this computer and was much more responsive.

Could that just be the issue?

I tried to attach a .prt file but it wouldn't let me.

 

Thanks,

Pack the part file into a compressed archive, like 7-zip or ZIP, before you upload it.
