I am having some real bad graphic issues when I zoom in and out of Creo Parametric 2.0

I am having some bad issues with Creo parametric when i zoom in and out. I will post an attachment below of the problem. I hope someone can help and post specific instructions as i am very new to Creo. Thanks in advance.

Re: I am having some real bad graphic issues when I zoom in and out of Creo Parametric 2.0

Without more info, here's something to start with to diagnose the problem:

1) Update display drivers

Make a Restore Point, or full backup before updating graphics drivers
Make sure you understand how to use the Restore Point or backup to restore your operating system and data
Look for drivers from the makers of the computer first, then the maker of the card, finally from the maker of the operating system
Note: sometimes the most compatible graphics driver version is not the latest version. Be prepared to look for and try older versions.

For AMD/ATI cards try http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx (external link)

2) Avoid using hardware acceleration
Mostly avoided by setting the config option "graphics win32_gdi"
Alternatively try "graphics d3d" for Creo 1, Creo 2, Creo 3

Also possible to add startup command option
1. Right Click on software (Creo) shortcut icon > Properties
2. Click in Target path and move cursor to extreme right (at the end of .....exe")
3. Add a space after .exe"
4. Type -g:win32_gdi > Apply > Ok

3) Use hardware acceleration, but disable some features (try one at a time)
May also benefit from the following config options, Creo Parametric 2.0 M090 and higher:
enable_opengl_fbo no
enable_opengl_vbo no
enable_opengl_shader no
ref http://communities.ptc.com/message/244856#244856 (external link)
Note: fbo = frame buffer object; vbo = vertex buffer object; shader is shader object.
These are part of later versions of OpenGL.

4) For better performance with win32_gdi, try setting the display to 16 bit in the OS system manager.

Re: I am having some real bad graphic issues when I zoom in and out of Creo Parametric 2.0

Hi, Thank you so much i simply followed this step:

1. Right Click on software (Creo) shortcut icon > Properties

2. Click in Target path and move cursor to extreme right (at the end of .....exe")

3. Add a space after .exe"

4. Type -g:win32_gdi > Apply > Ok


And it worked immediately. Does that mean i don't have to do anything else and if so is it possible that you could do it for me using team viewer i'm really bad at creo things to do with graphics

Re: I am having some real bad graphic issues when I zoom in and out of Creo Parametric 2.0

win32_gdi bypasses the hardware acceleration for graphics.

Further options are:

1) to use as-is, it won't hurt, but may be slower than with the hardware acceleration.

2) change the graphics driver for the hardware you do have; sometimes the latest version works, sometimes an earlier one is more compatible.

3) if those aren't OK, then get a compatible graphics accelerator

For more help you'll need to be more specific about the OS version and the graphics card, Not that I know which work together, but I have seen certain ones, particularly laptops with Intel accelerators, have more reported problems.
