Did you install the latest fall creator update of windows 10

 

Solid Edge and this latest Windows 10 is very slow...  this is a know issue and not solved up until now.

 

Kind Regards,

@MechtEngineer  There are a host of variables in how SE sets up the graphics settings automatically, especially with a hybrid graphics solution which many laptop PC's with a discreet card have.

 

  1. BIOS controls whether you use the embedded graphics or the discreet graphics, and then there is "auto".
  2. If "auto" is selected (and it is usually the default), then it is the job of the discreet graphics driver to manage the automatic switching between the embedded and discreet graphics which is usually done per application window.
  3. Solid Edge has no say as to which graphics it "sees" as that is handled by the BIOS and/or the discreet graphic drivers "auto" switching code and settings.
  4. For whatever graphics Solid Edge "sees", it gets the graphic contollers Manufacturer, model, driver version and compares that to a database delivered with Solid Edge to determine the automatic selection.  For any base Radeon graphics, that auto selection is Software Driven but for HD or PRO versions of the Radeon it is Hardware Driven Advanced.  All Intel HD Graphics auto set to Hardware Driven Advanced.

@MechtEngineer et al,

 

For many years, we defaulted to NOT be Graphics Card Advanced unless we recognized specific cards, because the side effect of defaulting TO it in the wrong situation was quite harsh. That said, this thread and others like it, prompted us to revist this stance here in 2017 (now 2018) with more modern cards in play. As a result:

 

Starting with ST10 MP2, we default to Graphics Card Advanced to address just the situation discussed here. As Student Edition does not benefit from MP download ability and its important to put our best foot forward, we have repackaged Student edition to do the same. We are in the process of doing same for Free Trial also, and that should be "upgraded" shortly.

 

Thanks to those that raised the issue.

 

Best

Dan

@MechtEngineer OT: What is your definition of Mechatronics Engineer? Do you do both Mechanical and Electronics sides of the business? Are you a ME with a little eletronics (Me)? Or an EE with a little mechanical (mE)? Or Something else? What company are you with?

@dcstaplesI noticed the new configuration DB is much simplified from the previous versions Smiley Happy

@dcstaples, in my opinion, Mechatronics Engineering is a broad term that a lot of Mechanical and Electronics Engineers would probably fit under if they have worked with both. The Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering that I studied in Australia was based on a Mechanical Engineering degree with around one third of the Mechanical Engineering subjects (especially specialised subjects) replaced with Electronics Engineering subjects. Some Universities have a similar degree called Robotics Engineering. I admit that I emerged as kind of a "Jack of both streams, but master of neither". My job has a mix of both.

@KennyG@dcstaples, thanks to both of you for your detailed responses. I understand a bit more about why it is difficult (or has been more difficult in the past) to use dedicated graphics as a default. Glad to hear that it will be the default option in the future.
