That sounds like what I'm experiencing. Every little thing I do chews up a single core to 100%. I use the align command a lot as I'm modeling rain screen panels. Even aligning a panel by a few fractions of an inch can take up to 30-60 seconds for Revit to realize what it needs to do and update the model. The whole time it is doing this, 1 core is maxed at 100% while the other 3 sit idle.
Hey John, Have you contacted Autodesk about this issue with core usage. I think the more complaints they have the sooner we can get that servicepack for the 2013 version. Until then we'll have to stay with 2012
Update to the latest troubleshooting with Revit 2013.
1) Installed the program on a completely different platform (AMD A8-3520M with Radeon GPU, 6Gb Ram, Win 7 x64) and still have the 1 Core problem leading to "massive lagging".
2) Autodesk put a service pack out for Revit 2013 about 4 weeks ago and this still did not fix the problem.
3) Autodesk has completely removed Revit 2013 from student downloads (at least on my end), this could be a sign they know something is wrong with the code and are rebuilding the entire Revit 2013 suite.
Will keep you posted...
Hi, my Building Design Suite is the same! Very slow! I think this Design Suite is an excellent idea if it works? I have tried three computers none of which are slow! I used Revit 2012 and 2013 with them all with no problems.! Wish I had some spare hair to pull out! Like the other guys! Fed up of Revit locking up! Most simple tasks are taking far to long to do what was once a quick and easy in Revit! I would not recommend the Building Design Suite for anyone to work with at the moment!
