Hello all, I’m sorry to bother you, but I was wondering if somebody might be able to shed some light on the situation.
I can’t seem to open Rhino with accelerated graphics enabled. I wouldn’t be too bothered frankly but I am having to work on complex models at the moment as we are approaching end of year submissions and I finally understand the importance of hardware acceleration.
I find it strange that after 2 years of using Rhino it suddenly starts misbehaving. While I am suspicious of the Win10 Creators update being the culprit I have done some cleaning up of my PC today that I can’t be sure if it is related. As such I am wondering if anybody else is having issues since the creators update which would shed some light on the situation?
Failing that - to improve general performance of my computer I have done the following:
Uninstalled a number of redundant software which may have been tied to Rhino and I don’t know if it deleted some files necessary for Rhino:
-V-Ray 2.0 Trial
- Keyshot Trial
- Energyplus v 8.4
I updated the graphics card drivers to the latest available through GeForce Experience.
All that was earlier today, about an hour and a half ago I tried to open rhino to get back to work and have been stuck scouring the internet for solutions since, is there any form of diagnostics I can run on Rhino to determine what the issue is?
And is it possible to just reinstall Rhino 5 again, I am concerned given my luck that this will screw up the functionality of the other plugins I have installed such as VisualArq, Weaverbird and Grasshopper?
Any help would be highly, highly appreciated in this as frankly this is the worst possible time of the year to find myself with an unusable version of Rhino.
Thank you all,
