Alright guys this one is a little tricky........
I am in my top level assembly about 20,000 total approx. 700 unique parts. Anytime I try to pattern (array) or mirror a set of subassemblies (could be other commands too), my machine shows the preview view and churns and churns, then all of a sudden shuts mu pc off abruptly and instanly. There are no warnings no blue screen just shuts down. Upon start-up I get the windows message that it was not shut down properly bla bla bla...
I am running Windows 7, 64 bit version and have a Nvidia Quadro FX 880M
Computer is pretty new, Elitebook 8540w Intel Core i7 vPro
I have tried everything, not sure what to do here, Anyone else having this problem or a fix tro it??????????????
Solved! Go to Solution.
The computer the fan is running and running perfectly... Still not sure why this happens!!!!!!!!!
What diagnostics evidence do you have that, "everything is running perfectly"?
I'll wager that either something is overheating in your system or there is a faulty sensor in your system that is saying something is overheating or failing in some way (RAM, CPU, Graphics card or HDD).
It could also be the power supply. Either being overtaxed or its fan is failing and it is overheating.
This is a recent issue and I am assuming it is the CPU...
I never blamed this on Inventor, mearly asking if anyone has had the issue so chill with the hostility!
Before this started shutting down my cpu, I ran a similar pattern (array) and it took almost 2 hrs to complete!
So I am not in doubt that its the CPU's fault for shutting down, but does anyone have the issue of mirrors and patterning (array) taking an extreamly long amount of time, and if so how can I reduce the time it takes to process...
I have suppressed everything in the assembly that is not used on the command and still no effect in length!!!
What to do What to do???
Oh and thank you to all who helped with this I am currently running a stress test on my cpu to see where the falure is!!!
... but does anyone have the issue of mirrors and patterning (array) taking an extreamly long amount of time, and if so how can I reduce the time it takes to process...
AutoCAD to finish the patttern features.
or maybe Fusion (haven't tried large patterns yet in Fusion). The parametric overhead in Inventor seems to be deadly for large patterns.
Something to note, although the stress test may find it anyway...
You may hear a fan going, but considering that pc's will be using 2 if not 3 or more fans (CPU, power supply and graphics card if equipped), I'd take the cover off and peer inside to see what fan/s are actually working.
