The dynamic highlighting is what is slow and you can watch the lines generate it is so slow in Software Open GL.
I have a Lenovo T480 with a UHD 620 integrated card. I am trying to run SolidWorks 2016 and the option for Software Open GL is checked and grayed out. With software Open GL, it runs too slow. I can run Solidworks in the safe mode and the check box for Software OpenGL is left unchecked and it runs fine. I run it everyday for several weeks this way and it's great except I have to setup Solidworks every time I run it. Why is this setting being forced to Software Open GL? Thanks
You failed to mention what OS you are using. Also, you should use ONLY the drivers provided by lenovo and not the generic Intel drives.
Download, run, AND ATTACH the results of this utility, and an Intel support engineer will be able to assist you.
Hi, I've attached the file (previously attached to the email that was sent to me). I have contacted SolidWorks support and they quickly traced it to the Open GL setting. There is a software lock which prevents SolidWorks from using hardware Open GL. So my understanding is that this is in the driver which they have no control over.
