I started a project in MEP 2009 windows xp, then upgraded it to MEP 2012 windows 7.  Since then I've had multiple issues. In 2009 I was able to work on the 3D files no problem.  However  "MEP 2012 freezes when clicking on a layout tab or freezes when opening a dwg"
The below messages pop up in the AutoCAD Text Window;


Failed to calculate silhouettes of a face.

Modeling Operation Error:
     Inconsistent containments on coincident face_face_ints.


My current setup is;


Windows 7 Pro Sp 1

Intel Xeon 3.10 GHz

8 GB Ram

64 Bit

NVIDIA Quadro 600

715 MB


I downloaded the update from the Autodesk website to certify the graphics driver. So it's certified.

I also find MEP 2012 on windows 7 doesn't seem to accomodate 3D files that well.


Someone please help.
