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?
Hi, The issue discussed here is a AutoCAD for Mac only thing. You can post your issues about AutoCAD 2013 for WIndows here: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-2013/bd-p/70
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
hi using autocad 2013 on macbook pro running 10.7.5 having the sunning slow problem as reading the forum i noticed u can update with sp1 to address this issue but when i check for up dates its not there is this because im a student using a student copy from the autodesk website ??? i need to fix this problem to carry on with my corse work
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.
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:
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.
