Hi All, hoping someone out here can lend me a hand!?? System Freezes and Screen Goes Black momentarily when running Vectorworks 2024 Designer Suite I was running Vectorworks 2024 Designer Suite on my machine, but with 12GB RAM and 2 x Nvidia Quadro 2000 Cards , each 1GB VRAM. The screen kept going black at random points as i was drawing and modelling a small residential project. Sometimes the system would freeze for a few seconds then come back to life, other times it would crash. I deduced that the times the system was crashing seemed to coincide with an auto save attempt [more often than not] I can seemingly reproduce the blackscreen at will by clicking 'save', when the screen will go black for a few seconds... So I moved my auto save location from my one drive account, to my NAS where I save my project work I also replaced the network card with a PCIE card as I know that the onboard network card had issues with connection dropping out, and wondered if it was having a lag moment when connecting to the internet or network, but the problem is still there with both a PCIE network connection and a USB 2 adaptor to RJ45 network cable Still the problem persists... I had tried to solve the problem after reading recommended hardware requirements, by adding ram [now 48GB] and by adopting a slightly more powerful graphics card Nvidia Quadro 4200 [4GB VRAM] but it really didn't help at all. I have installed the latest graphics driver for my card as well, I have uninstalled the driver and reinstalled the driver... still the issue persists... I searched the knowledge database for "black screen" but didn't find very much apart from advice to reinstall the graphics drivers whilst Vectorworks was not running... that's not helped so far.... Thank you for checking this out - it would be great to know if anyone has solved similar or got any ideas that I can try?
Wondering if somebody from Vectoworks could give an update on the best GPU to get the most bang for buck in the software. When buying new hardware for our studio, sellers try and push NVidia Quadro cards as they are supposedly more geared towards studio environments. However previous feedback from the Vectoroworks team and subsequent discussions suggest Quadro cards carry no particular benefit for Vwx, and you're best off going for the comparable GeForce card which will give best performance for the price. Is this still the case? Any guidance on where vwx is at now in terms of GPUs - and where its headed in the future? Are there any advantages to the Quadro cards?
