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)
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.
By default, laptops use the integrated Intel graphics chip to save power. Did you go to the Nvidia control panel’s 3D Settings, open the tab to customize the Nvidia card by program and choose the Nvidia card to be used for SU?
