Problem with drawings of large assemblies


I use Pro/Engineer Wildfire 4.0 with a card drive Nvidia Quadro FX 1700. When I work with drawing plane of large assemblies and drawing have cross view sections the computer is very slow.

What is the problem? Pro/Engineer or the card drive?

Best Regards,

It could be ram too. If you already have a good Video card with 512MB ram, try using simplified representations and envelops and zones. they are easy on memory.
