Re: AutoCAD for MAC 2013 running slow

01-25-2013 07:03 AM in reply to: JohnRennie

Hey guys, I have been running into this problem as well, but on the PC version (2013LT).  We are running Win7 Pro on 27" iMac, utilizing the Boot Camp utility.  I realize this thread is related to Cad for Mac OS, but @wei503, is there any corralation to the "memory leak" and Boot Camp?  Or is this a ACAD for Mac only thing?

 

Thanks.

Thanks Wei, I posted a simlar question to the PC forum, but was directed here.

 

It's unfortuately a grey area b/c we are running AutoCadLT for Windows, but on a Mac.  So this should be a Window's question.  But due to the Boot Camp utility, I feel it potentially involves both systems.

 

We have tried numerous fixes, with some limited luck last night, but it is back to being fussy again this morning.  I would love to hear from anybody that has run into this issue, or seen fixes that are productive.

Ok my 1 month free trial is over and there is no way I can purchase in its current form.

 

To recap, I am using a brand new 27" imac and was using a trial of Autocad LT 2013. I had updated to the latest version.

 

I couldn't isolate the lag which ranged from a short delay to absolutely huge infuriating ones of over a minute or 2 with the spinning circle, to any one particular command and it happened on old drawings and also brand new ones started from scratch with 2013.

 

If Autodesk can sort this problems out I will give it another go but until then I am not spending £1,200 

 

I will check back here from time to time to see if any progress has been made but until then it is back to using  2000 on my old PC

I am running out of my patient right now. I have a drawing here with many references. And AutoCAD 2013 Mac get really really slowly. My CPU (1 core?) is running 100% and stocks there. i think this is the problem. Is AutoCAD running on 1 core? On a windows machine the drawing is heavy but fa away not that slow.

 

Hardware is: 2.3Ghz i7, 16Gb Ram, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512 MB (2012)

Software: 10.8.3, AutoCAD 2013 Mac

 

Pleasse help me it's driving me crazy.

Hi,
What does it mean "get really slow"? How does it gets slow? On zoom and pan operations? On object creation? On object edit? On object selection?
Could you clarify?

Maxim,

I had a AutoCAD 2013 version for Mac on 30 day trial. It was unusable on a
mac book air so I never bothered to purchase. It seemed to hang on for a
few seconds on every command. My mac book air was virtually brand new at
the time. I persisted for a week and then gave up. I got around the
problem by installing parallels and using my old PC version of LT2007. For
the amount of drawing I do it is all I require.

Hi Carl,

 

I already made some investigations about AC for Mac slowing down when using Xrefs, you can read about this here, in this topic. Pay special attention to posts from #21:

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-for-Mac/AutoCAD-for-MAC-2013-running-slow/m-p/3463102#M4401

to #28:

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-for-Mac/AutoCAD-for-MAC-2013-running-slow/m-p/3481670#M4477

 

Could it be so, that in there are some proxy objects (objects, created with some third-parity applications, that runs inside AutoCAD) as you wrote that external references come from PC side?

If so, that could be the main reason for slowing down AC for Mac with such files.
