Has your SOLIDWORKS installation become unworkably slow overnight? Then this post is for you.
I have to start with a disclaimer:
The problem and the solution are basically in the title, so there you go.
Because in just the last few weeks, three people whose SOLIDWORKS was extremely slow started a chat with us. Now they might find this post directly, instead of our slow drawing post.
I mean taking one minute (or more) to draw a sketch line. Annoyingly, unbearably slow.
Maybe you didn’t, but Windows might still have.
It happened to me a while ago. It wasn’t even a driver for the GPU that is used for SOLIDWORKS, it was a driver for the integrated Intel GPU. I rolled back the update and the problem was gone.
So check your update history in Windows Update to see if there was a recent update for a graphics card. If you found one, try uninstalling the update to see if that fixes the problem.
