I like to know how to active solidworks real view graphics?
Hi Nicolas, I had same problem and I solved it.
This is pretty old topic, but I write solution for this anyway if someone needs it in future.
I'm not sure how this work with AMD cards, but with all Nvidia Geforce cards this should work.
1.Open the registry (Run -> regedit)
2.Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER>SOFTWARE>Solidworks>SOLIDWORKS 2015>Performance>Graphics>Hardware>Current"
3. Double click on the "Renderer" key and copy the text under "Value Data". For example, for the GTX 770 mine was "GeForce GTX 770/PCIe/SSE2"
4.Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWARE>Solidworks>SOLIDWORKS 2015>Performance>Graphics>Gl2Shaders>NV40"
5.Right-click on the NV40 folder on the left pane and select "New -> Key"
6.Rename the new key with what was copied in step #3
7.The only key in this folder should be a "(Default)" key
8.Right-click on the right pane and select "New -> DWORD (32-bit) Value"
9.Name this new key "Workarounds"
10.Double-click on the "Workarounds" key and enter the value "30408". You should be in Hexadecimal mode.
11.RealView should now be available. If it is not, try setting the value in step #10 to "31408" or "30008"
hope this works for you.
Thanks A lot :D
Its worked well for me in SW2016. Thanks!
Thanks a lot. I worked for me.
wow! its really worked ,thanks a lot .
This may harmful to PC hardware ? Is this make bad impact on PC performance?
Teemu and John have a right. When you don't have a certificate graphics card :AMD Fire Pro or NVIDIA Quadro SolidWorks don't have this option.
But is the one way to do this :)
Propably realview graphics is not supported by your graphic card if you can't use it at SolidWorks.
More info here:
If you work on mac/parallels - here you find the registry-patches regarding your used Solidworks version: http://kb.parallels.com/de/122790 find it attached below for Version 2016. Cheers!
There is a third party -not officially supported- application that enables realview graphics in SW2010-2015 called realhack (v3.9.1 for up to SW2015) you can google it and give i t a try ;) If i recall correct most other software, including Catia, Inventor, TopSolid 7 etc. support realview-like graphics with any card. It is just a marketing nvidia-solidworks thing :)
You can just edit the register to enable it in almost every nvidia or ati card ... What card do you have?
and how would you go about editing the register? I have an Nvidia 780 card
