Display System Requirements and Information

For optimal performance, it is recommended to use a professional graphics card that is designed for CAD applications. For information about cards used in testing Solid Edge and results, refer to graphics certification table.

Note that running with extremely high screen resolution and color depth increases the memory requirements on the system and may result in apparent performance degradation. If experienced, lower the resolution and color depth for improved performance.

When running Solid Edge, if you experience an abnormally high abort rate, parts disappearing, or other graphic anomalies, you may not be using the appropriate graphics driver. For more details visit:
 graphics certification table.

Also, setting Display Fonts to Large Fonts or Extra Large Fonts (larger than 96 DPI) may cause some Solid Edge user interface items to not display as intended. To resolve these issues, use Normal Fonts (96 DPI). A wide-screen ribbon layout is used by Solid Edge. This ribbon layout is optimal for horizontal screen resolutions set to 1920 or above. Solid Edge automatically detects your resolution and sets the ribbon layout to wide-screen starting at horizontal resolutions 1600 and above. You will see some group collapsing on the right side of the Ribbon on resolutions between 1600 and 1920.
