full use of multicore processor......

Add "GPU processing support as/when suitable" to this.


e.g. Use the GPU (CUDA) to assist with rendering and FEA.


Can't imagine you would want to use the GPU to aid with calculations during normal modelling for fear of nuking frame-rate, but, saying that, those with multiple GPUs or Telsa cards might be able to benefit (if multi-core is already supported).

I'm all for it, but file this under "Start from scratch".  All these CAD packages are kluges from waaaay back:smileyfrustrated:

This is definitely one of those "start from scratch" ideas.  Using tesla cards/cuda processors is still viable.  Some people have already found success with one powerful workstation card for graphics and a second affordable card for physics in the gaming world.

really don't understanding the reason why with inventor my processor is always "8%" used even if i'm loading a big assebly for mintues..

Consider the opening of a large assembly. From what I can see in terms of file usage and CPU usage it seems to be a very linear-sequential process and file I/O speeds are very low. Consider opening the assembly on one CPU core then open subsequent parts on other CPU cores to speed the whole process up.  The same can be done for Saving.

We also need full processor usage while using cable and harness as well.
