By adjusting the Image Quality setting, you can vary the performance of your SOLIDWORKS models.
- [Instructor] While many adjustments can be made…under the System Options to increase performance,…it also makes sense to look over…at the specific document properties,…which are particular to each document you're working in,…and adjust those properties as well.…The one that I want to highlight specifically…is the Image Quality.…So you can see right here…that the Image Quality is turned up very high,…extremely high even, and this makes it slower,…as it says right here under it.…
So let's go and take a look at our image real quick,…and you'll see I've got nice curves with pretty nice radii,…smooth lines all around, not really too much more…we could ask for from the graphics.…Now let's see what happens when we turn that setting down.…I'm going to go way down on both of these.…Now what you can see is that it makes a circle more blocky.…That's literally what we're adjusting is the deviation…that it can have from roundness.…
So I'm going to set this super low, just to exaggerate this.…And as you can see, my performance goes up, gets faster.…
