I have a very fast computer (3.6Ghz Xenon Processor with 40GB of RAM) and Creo will not run any faster than it does on my simple laptop computer.
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas that will help improve the performance of the software? I can't even get my model to spin without taking several minutes. Surely, there is a way to utilize the full capability of my machine.
ANY ideas or suggestions are welcome and much appreciated. Thanks.
you need a powerful graphics card that uses OpenGL, but even this does not help, if your display settings are too challenging. Then, with a medium range graphics card (i.e. nvidia quadro fx 2000) you'll want to use shaded view instead of wireframe, because those won't get boosted by OpenGL of course.
These are basically the default settings, but under normal circumstances, they should work fine:
This one is a must have, but needs some performance
With a high performance graphics card, i.e. nvidia quadro 4000, the issues with wireframes and silhouettes are gone, too.
I meet the same issue on a xeon quad core 3GHz + quadro FX1700 workstation.
I first thought it was a graphic card issue, but I have noticed that spinning an assembly is jaggy in WF5 while it is smooth in productview (for a comparable display quality).
Could it be a software (un)optimization issue ?
there is no such a thing like "general speed", which can be slower or faster in Creo, like it would be with a game or when playing a video or when doing a benchmark.
There are very diverse models, use cases and run settings on one side and there are different bottlenecks on the other, like for example:
Hence all you have been told about network, memory, graphics card, etc., is surely correct in one or more contexts and irrelevant in others - this is what makes it so difficult.
As a consequence, when troubleshooting performance being slower than expeced, the first thing is to evaluate, what exactly are the actions and the environment, what are your expectations and what is the observed speed.
Only then a meaningful diagnosis and recommendations are possible.
My hard disk crashed a few months ago. It has been changed by a SSD drive, since I have observed a great improvment of my computer performances !!
