Sketchup 2017 with windows 10 issue

#1

I’m using pretty decent computer but having a big struggle and stress working with Sketchup 2017.
It is extremely slow to edit, select, copy object…etc.
Searched a lot of topics about this here but nobody seems to have a right answer for it.


Graphics card: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080Ti driver updated last week.

Anyone have a solution about this issue?
Sketchup team - have you guys released any updates?
Are we living in a 21 century? :frowning:
hahaha!!! new users can only upload one image?!!

hello, I disagree… I can make sketchup work smoothly with a 1.5 Ghz processor, the problem comes from somewhere else. And come on… 128 Gb ram and 1080Ti looks good ? it’s monstruous !

hello, have you read this one ?

I also think windows 10 is unusable unless you have a SSD. If you have a “physical” HD, check in the task manager if your disk activity isn’t stuck at 100%. I had so many problems on many different computers with windows 10 that I reverted them all to windows 7

Are you sure the your Nvidia card is set up to be used by SketchUp as default? Windows updates frequently change the default to the integrated Intel graphics. We’ve seen this reported many times. Resetting the Nvidia card as default has solved the problem for those people. And since this is caused by Windows updates and those typically get installed automatically, you would need to be vigilant and maintain control over that.

Not for SketchUp 2017.

And as part of that, you have Microsoft and others playing Big Brother pushing updates to your computer that they claim are beneficial.

How do you set which video card Sketchup uses?

You need to open the Nvidia control panel and choose SketchUp.

Thank you all for the comments.
Tried everything but nothing works … feeling like stuck in swirl.
Any comments from Sketch-up team or company??
