Extreme lagg using Catia V5


New member

I'm encountering major lagg when using Catia V5, especially when I'm moving objects around. I'm on a laptop with decent specs, I've tried installing the latest drivers for my GPU, setting catia to run on my nvidia gpu rather than the integrated one. Nothing seems to work. I appreciate any feedback.

First, try changing the performance settings. Tools + Options + General + Display and use the Performance page:

If that doesn't help.....

If you've just installed CATIA and your system is slow, I suggest comparing your laptop to the recommended CATIA hardware list, especially the graphics card.

If CATIA used to run OK and all the sudden it has slowed down, you might want to try deleting the TEMP file folders.
