So I am using Rhino 6 and the raytrace mode keeps on crashing every time I go from another view to that. Example if i am on shaded mode and i want to change it to raytrace it crashes. I am not doing anything fancy I basically just create a solid box then I change the view to ray trace and rhino crashes. I have the most up to date rhino 6.

I’m having the same issue. I downloaded the correct driver (GT 540M, Win7 64 bit), and the laptop wouldn’t even boot. Luckily I created a system restore point - I suggest you do the same.
Windows device manager says my driver is up to date, despite being from 2013. Rhino (v5 and v6) would ignore this driver and use the integrated card. I rolled back to the previous driver and Rhino uses the Nvidia card, however I get the raytrace crash that Gevoaelian describes. Also, geometry is invisible when created, until I toggle display modes (wireframe to shaded, etc).
Sorry, Gevoaelian, I’m not trying to hijack your post, just hoping my info might shed light on the issue.
I’m using a Dell XPS 15, win7 64-bit. It has the integrated graphics and a GT 540M.
On the Nvidia site I did select the correct system options, but all of the drivers offered either wont boot, or boot with a black screen. I’ve tried the newest, the oldest, and something in the middle. I manually uninstall/delete prior drivers before installing. I’ve just deleted the Nvidia driver again and allowed Windows to auto detect the card. It is showing up in the device manager as “working properly” and I’ve set the global and application settings to use it. Even right-click the Rhino icon and specify Graphics card.
So, to summarize: Rhino won’t use the Nvidia card unless I roll back to a driver from 2012 (via device manager). Even then Raytracing will crash. All attempts to install newer drivers via Nvidia site will not boot or boot with black screen.
And here is my own thread, if the admins would like to keep these two issues separate:
@nathanletwory this should be ON by default and we need an option for it on the Cycles panel too.
Now it is way to hidden. Having UseStartResolution = OFF isn’t even an option for me on the GTX1070, so it makes no sense to not have it ON. Please fix so we don’t have to inform every user
