Tutorials are Slow

I've been working my way thru the 2014 CFD tutorials.  I find the performance of the server is very poor.

Most of the time it takes longer to turn the page than it does to read it.  Many times my browser times out and

says it can't display the page. My internet connection is in good health (speed test reports 83Mps download and 53Mps upload). 

 

The issue also seems to impact the wiki help.

 

I'm hoping someone from Autodesk can send this email to the relevant people.

 

Is there somewhere I can download the tutorials so I can get on with the learning?

 

Thanks

One solution might be a different browser. The other is as you say, local files, which you will find here

The files available for download on that link are only for the self paced training and only contain the car assembly. Is there another link to download the files used in the tutorials from the autodesk wikihelp? Because I've been searching for the folder location and It doesn't show in my system and in this link http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Simulation_CFD/enu/2014/Help/0083-Tutorial83/0084-Tutorial84/0085-Launc... there is only a path for windows 7, I don know if it's the same for windows 8

 

Thank you!

The tutorial model files should be located in the same location for win7 and win8:

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Simulation CFD 2014\Tutorials

 

Does that help ou?

 

Thanks,

Yes, turns out there where two similar paths because my system is in
another language than the program. And i found out that moving the tutorial
files from the Autodesk program files to another location, for example the
desktop improves the speed in the simulations.

Thank you

Excellent! Interesting that the location of the files effected the solver speed. Were the files on a network drive or a very slow hard drive before?
