  1. Evolve 2017 and NVIDIA Optimus

    Computers running NVIDIA Optimus technology and Evolve might experience issues with our latest and upcoming releases. To avoid visual artifacts or crashes when running Evolve, it is recommended that you change the 'Preferred graphics processor' setting under Global settings in the NVIDIA control panel from 'Auto-select' to 'High-performance NVIDIA processor' This will avoid using auto switching that has been found to be the primary reason for crashes.
  2. Dear Evolve users, We want to bring to your notice that Evolve 2017.1 will not be supporting native solidWorks 2017 file format (part file) We expect the translators to be updated by the end of the first quarter of 2017. You will still be able to open evolve files (.evo) on solidWorks using our solidWorks plug in. Exchange of data between SolidWorks and Evolve can be done seamlessly using the parasolid (x_t and x_b) formats.

  5. Hello together I recently started with Inspire and Evolve. I constantly run in the problem, that I'm not able to trim or use boolean functions in my models. Do you have any idea, what I'm doing wrong? You can find my file in the dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jtxcdzupsflc7km/1900611_2.evo?dl=0 Thank you very much. Kind regards Ben
  6. The company I work for uses Evolve 2015 for product design, and we are trying to figure out how to export our models in a way that would allow the factories we work with to create 2D views in AutoCAD for their build plans. We want to end up with full scale drawings, as they often times print out at full scale to create patterns. We do need the drawings to be editable and dimensional, so I don't think a PDF will work for what we need. I would have thought that exporting as a .dxf would be the way to go, but I have not had any luck reading this in autocad. Do I need to do a drawing layout in Evolve and export that somehow? If anyone knows of a way to do this, it would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Well to be honest...none of the versions I have installed on my computer work with Windows 8.1. I am going through tutorials and getting familiar with all the many buttons and sometimes it'll crash on me if I just press a button. If I open a saved project (with or without history) and I try to do anything...it'll crash and shut down. I actually can't use the program at this point so this saddens me... Any help is much appreciated!
  8. i wasn't see view shortcut in shurtcuts windows. like L for left, T for top. has evolve viewport shortcut? in the end, i like evolve. it's scalable and parametric.
  9. Hello, I am new to solidthinking Evolve and have been exploring it since January. It is great fun but I am having a problem. I am not sure how to get a drawing from the parts I have created. I am trying to get orthographic drawings from each of my parts in my model so that I can have these parts cut on a CNC machine from sheet stock. I've noticed that there is an "Environment" heading in the top menu which has "Drawing" as one of the options, but I can't seem to figure it out. This may or may not be the right way to go about this... I just can't figure out how to do this. Can someone assist me? Thanks much! -chairface
  10. I am interested in learning Evolve, having tried a couple of other Mac OS based CAD applications, but I still want more control, and better interfaces. I am looking hard at Evolve, but before I invest my money in purchasing the app, wanted to know from the forum members, is there additional training available either online, onsite, or through a workshop environment? Let me know. Thanks. Ron
