Problems with options in ST7

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hi Everybody

I use solid edge for several months. I have a few problems with my ST7 student version:

-Every time I add new part to assembly it shows parts reference plane. I tried to turn it off in options, but it doesn't work. When I close program and open it again the option "Show part reference plane during place part" is still active ;/
- I can't save the settings when I create some feature ( a hole for exapmple ).
- Sometime when I create Part in place the toolbar show for a second and immediately disappear.
- When I open a Keyshot rendering a render button is grey out.

 

Anybody has an idea how to mend it ? Is any maintenance pack available for student version? I download some from torrents but it doesn't work with my version.

Thank's in advance for help!

Did you install Solid Edge by right mouse clicking on Setup.exe and choosing "Run As Administrator"?  Optionally you would have had to turn off User Account Control and restarted before installing.

No I didn't. So I have to uninstall Solid Edge and install it again ?

I installed Solid Edge one more time by choosing " "Run As Administrator" and I still have the same problems. I also turned off User Account Control and restarted befeore installing.

Do you have any other idea?

Hi there,

 

Sounds to me like some incompatible system spec's.

Can you list what your sytem specs are?...of most interest, the "graphics card / chip" [& driver version]

 

Also, in all the years Student Edition has been available, no "Maintenance Pack" has been able to be installed, due to it not having API access.

OK, so I would suspect this is a graphics related issue. Actually, it looks like there is a newer driver [13.9 - 18 Sep 2013] for your card anyway, so I'd start there, and see if that fixes the bulk of your issues.

I downloaded and installed new driver, then reinstalled solid edge and it didn't fix my problems.

I attach pictures with my main difficulties.

As I wrote in the first post:
- Option - Show part reference plane during place part is still avctive
- I still can't save setting when I create some hole.

OK.....so maybe the issues you are looking at now, are actually limitations of the Student Edition. [not 100% sure on that]

Certainly the Keyshot one is, as it is only available in the commercial instance, and even then, it is only as part of the upper level versions. [Classic & Premium]

I don't need keyshot very much so it isn't a big problem.

But option to save settings and hiding all reference planes as I showed on pictures would be very helpful. I didn't have such problems in st6.

 

Now I must have ST7 because I'm doing graduation work and I can't open files from ST7 in ST6.

 

Do you have any idea how to mend it ?. Thank you!Smiley Happy
