How to reduce SOLIDWORKS load time for models containing Simulation data
Is it taking too long to load SOLIDWORKS models that contain simulation data?
If so, then you should reduce SOLIDWORKS load time by utilizing a performance enhancement introduced to SOLIDWORKS Simulation in the 2014 release. Using a simulation system option, you can control when simulation results are loaded. So if you are opening a large SOLIDWORKS file, you can exclude simulation results from being loaded until SOLIDWORKS requires the study data. This means that you can run SOLIDWORKS with the simulation add-in active, and it won’t affect system performance when opening files.
This option can be enabled through the simulation options: Simulation > Options > System Options > General > Load all Simulation studies when opening a model (requires more time to open a model). The option check box is found at the foot of the dialog as shown in the figure below:
