Problem with play path animation - Creo 2.0 Win7 64bit

Hi all,

I upgraded to Creo 2.0 M030 recently, from Creo/Elements Pro 5. I use manufacturing a lot, and the only issue I came up with is the tool play path animation. It seems like there is a graphics issue. The problem in detail is as follows: I push the play button amd the tool starts moving for a sec and then freezes. When I move the mouse pointer randomly around my screen the tool starts moving again, but does only a small movement. Eventually, if i keep moving the mouse the animation will finish!!!

I have tried installing a previous version M020 but no luck. I installed both ptc certified and latest nvidia drivers, still no luck. I disabled tranparency from win7, same thing. Config options for graphics all default. Any ideas anyone? See my PC hardware specs below...

Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3P

Core i5 2500K @ 4000MHz

Quadro 600

Windows 7 Pro 64bit

I seem to remember having this issue too. It looks terrible in no hidden line view but good in shaded right? Try changing use_software_opengl (no*)

Re: Problem with play path animation - Creo 2.0 Win7 64bit

Yes, in shaded somewhat better, but still a problem. I already had use_software_opengl set to no* !!

A colleague with a GeForce card and similar hardware setup, told me that had no problem! May be you are right it's an opengl issue!

Vericut works ok, so that's something!

Try playing with these settings

George and Nick,

I have the same problem. I figured it was my cheap NVidia Quadro fx1800 video card set with the config use_software_opengl set to no.

Maybe PTC has a problem with the play path then?

Nick,

I looked into creo 2 options, and I have almost the same settings.

However, I think Steve is right. There is an issue with PTC's Creo 2.0 and opengl/Quadro drivers. With Creo Elements Pro 5 I had no such issue!! Maybe with Firepro cards might no be a problem. probably because of the latest good cooperation between PTC and AMD.

I will contact PTC support and let you know.

Thanks!!

Hello Nick,

How can I access those dialog boxes you're showing ? I've never seen these ones. I know I can config options with File>Options, but I'm just wondering !! Thanks.

View - display settings - model display

I have the same problem with programs that I created in WF4. If I create a program in Creo 2 than I don't have this problem. I have a Quadro 5000 graphics card.
