Lock Assembly

I've been working on this one large assembly... Finally the parts are set. Being the commands are extremly slow Example: 1 to 3 min. Then the parts are over the place. Is there a way of locking the parts other than Save. 

 

Thank You 

Greg

You can apply Ground relationships to parts to keep them from moving in an assembly. 

 

Why are commands extremely slow? If I remember from another post, you are using a very expensive and powerful Boxx workstation. There is likely something about your design process causing you headaches that you should fix..

Chally72,
I wanted to show you this as well.
I had a reply on "Now you see now you don't" with my drawings disappearing.

Well, fully modeled threads will certainly hurt your performance if you have a lot of them in an assembly, but it appears as if you are having serious graphics display issues outside of this.

 

While in a part or assembly, open up the file menu, select Solid Edge Options on the bottom left of the dropdown, and go to the View tab. On the right side, what does the Application Display dropdown box have in it? (Graphics Card Driven, Backing Store, Software Driven, etc..)

Also, what do you have for a graphics card and what drivers do you have for it?
