Everytime I open a lager DWG/DXF file my system is going extremely slowly. I have the feeling that Solid Edge can not handle these kind of files. Is this normal? If I open the file in my demo of Autocad LT the drawing is moving/zooming/rotating very smooth.. Also manipulate the drawing is working well in Autocad. Do I need to purchase a license of Autocad, of is there a way to do this smooth in Solid Edge?
Intel Xeon E5-1620 @3,6 GHz
8 GB DDR3 ram @1600MHz (I running on max 80% of it)
AMD Firepro V7900 2GB with 2GB ram video driver:
Driver File Version: 8.14.01.6463
Familiar Driver Version: 15.201.1151.1008-151104a-296217E
I've bought BricsCad, (simular program to AutoCad) Here everything is working good.
It's verry sadly that a expensive program sush as Solid Edge can't properly edit this kind of files.
I hope that in future releases this problem wil be fixed.
I downloaded the .dwg file to have a look, but it will not open in either ST9 or ST10 - crashes the translator in both cases. I also tried it in Draftsight also and it it would not open there either because of a version issue.
I am very sympathetic to this question.
Solid Edge is incredibly slow when you open a file that contains many documents.
It is quick to open a simple drawing.
I suspect this is a problem.
That's why people do not use 2D Draft.
SE is just not very robust in 2D. At least for translated dwgs. And robustness drops as entity count increases.
