Sketchup computer problem

I dropped both into the same model. My computer specs are lees than yours. Moving, orbiting etc did not affect the performance. I saved it, took about 3 or 4 seconds to process. Is SU tied to your 1070 in the Nvidia control panel?

Not that I know of, is there a way to check?
As far as I know sketchup in CPU based not GPU.

Since the release of SU2017 SketchUp rendering is done by the GPU, not the CPU. There is no option to dump the rendering back to the CPU as in older version where you could turn off Hardware Acceleration.

I will check my Nvidia control panel when i get home tonight.
What am I looking for to change if necessary?

“Manage 3D Settings”

Thanks,
I will check it out when i get home.

Thanks for the information sketch3d_de,

I made the changes you showed and reran the test and it’s a lot better acting, still a little slow. But I’ll work with some of my files over the weekend and see if I have any problems.

Hi: My setting for Open GL rendering GPU is on auto-select. Should I be changing it to GeForce GTX1070? Would that speed up my rendering? Have just purchased iRender nxt 2018 for my SU Pro 2018 version. Barb

When GPU is on auto-select, if your OS decides to go to low-power mode to save energy it will change to the integrated graphics and performance will suffer (and you may get errors or crashes). Set it to always select the GeForce for SketchUp.

just happened to see your previous post - thank you so very much - its been quite sluggish so hoping that it will improve. have a wonderful day. Barb

Sorry for changing to topic - but am also wandering how I can join the live stream with Aaron and Josh today. I got a notice on fb on my cell that there is a sketchup live: operating systems, hardware session on today at 11 am mst? Would love to listen in. I’m in EST timezone.

many thanks…

Just tune into our Facebook page at 1 PM EST and we’ll be live!

thank you … dawwww … I must need another coffee lmao

I also would like to view the live event, However I REFUSE to do social media. Will there be a link for viewing at a later time?

We understand! Yes, we will be posting it to YouTube, and I will share it here once it’s posted. That will take a few days, but it will be here :slight_smile:
