I had brought up this topic on another forum, because temporarily I had switched to using a mac. On a mac, formZ was wonderful. Hardly ever locking up, and stable as can be, even when placing components, rendering with Vray, editing materials, etc.
Since then, I have taken some side work, and bought a new PC (more affordable than a Mac). I thought, maybe my bad past experiences on Windows were due to using older machines, inexpensive video cards, and maybe having older versions of formZ installed on the machine. Well, it turns out, even on this brand new machine, with freshly installed FormZ, no preference file, and freshly installed Vray, formZ locks up at least 5 times a day, and upon restart it locks up again. I have to resort to dumping the autodessys folder to get it to unlock. Very disappointing!
What's going on?! I asked this question to other members and it seems at least some are not having any trouble. I guess I'll have to buy a Mac?!
Here are my machine spec's: Dell Inspiron 5680, 16 GB Ram, NVIDIA GTX 1070.
(Also slow at opening light parameters dialog box)
Thanks for looking into this.
