I have one PC in our office with some graphics issues. In a new IDW when the user adds a dimension, then zooms out, all the views disappear except for the active view. The file were using is one part and two views on the IDW so it's not a large assembly or anything complicated. I've installed the latest driver from NVIDIA and changed the Inventor hardware settings from Performance to Compatability and back and forth which helps temporarily but then it goes back to the same issue after a while. I've maximize RAM utilzation and the problem isn't being seen in any other applications and we have the latest service pack 1.1 installed. Any suggestions?? Am I missing something?
The configuration is:
Dell Precision 3500
Win 7, 64
Nvidia Quadro 2000
Solved! Go to Solution.
Myself and coworker have actually had an issue like this. Sometimes when dimensioning all the views would disappear and if we would zoom in or out the views would reappear. This has happened on more than a few drawings, though I couldn't locate any off the top of head or upload them due to confidentiality.
update the graphics card driver.
I've actually upgraded the video card driver straight from the NVIDIA site with temporary improvement. I'm wondering if there is a setting under the NVIDIA control that I need to modify specifically for Inventor. The issue appears to occur on one of the dual monitors that has the digital connection. Perhaps these issues are related, but when I move Inventor to this monitor, then close and re-open Inventor it automatically opens on the base monitor. Could this be an indication of something related?
See if Windows "Aero" is enabled on this machine. A post a short while back with a graphics problem fixed it by enabling "Aero".
Me and my employees are having the same issue as Brendabr12345. We just upgraded to Inventor 2013, installed SP1.1, & updated our graphics card drivers. I verified we are running a theme with "Aero". And when I uncheck "Enable transparency", the disappearing act occurs with half the frequency. I attached the drawing. Here is our setup:
Windows 7 Pro
NVidia Quadro 2000
6 GB RAM
Any other ideas?
The IDW without the related files is useless. A screen capture would probably suffice to show the problem.
I found a strange fix. I changed my hardware settings in Application Options > Hardware, from performance to quality. I closed the idw, and reopened it. I was having the same issue, so I switched the hardware setting back to performance, closed the idw, then reopened the file. I worked in idw environments for 30 minutes with no issues, then deployed to my employees. Last I asked on Friday, everything was running fine.
