I downloaded SketchUp today to start working on a few home projects, and eventually upgrade to pro to use at work for small drawings on job sites. I’ve used the program before, and it’s always worked very well on other PC’s that I’ve used.
I stared having problems with overall performance immediately after downloading. So I’m hoping someone may have an answer for me, or just be able to tell me that my system just can’t handle SketchUp. Here’s my specs:
- Intel i5 2.3GHz
- GeForce 940m With 2GB of Ram (This is a Laptop)
- 16GB DDR4
- Windows 10 64-bit
- 600GB free on my HDD
- 128GB SSD that is use as bootloader
I ran the SketchUp Check and got no errors.
The application starts fine, but the performance is incredibly choppy. It will take a few seconds to snap to a point, then I can draw a line but it will continuously disappear and reappear until I stop moving the cursor. This also takes a long time, (Around 5 seconds for one line to render, if not longer) My driver software is up to date.
If anyone has any insight into a way to troubleshoot this, it would be greatly appreciated.
