If you have noticed that your CAD is starting to perform poorly or crash during certain tasks where it worked fine one day and not the next, this is usually easily fixed.
Thankfully, CAD is pretty straight-forward in regards to what is causing performance issues.
Usually CAD crashes are due to 3 things:
- CAD needs to be updated.
- Graphics Card needs to be update.
- Windows pending installs/restarts.
A question to ask yourself is: Is this only happening on one file or all files?
If it's one file - Perhaps it's a corrupt drawing. As a test, duplicate the file, and try the following:
- Open up a new CAD drawing
- INSERT - insert your drawing
- AUDIT - let CAD fix the errors
- PURGE - purge unused items
If it's all files:
- Which version of CAD is this on? Is it updated to the latest version?
- Type - “ABOUT” - in the command line and send us a screenshot for us to cross-check it for you.
- Is Windows Updated fully?
- Type “Windows Update” in the Windows Search Bar to make sure there aren't any pending installs/restarts necessary.
