    Looking for user input

    Here’s your chance to talk directly to NVIDIA to provide valuable feedback about how we can help provide you with the functionality that you need.
    We want to hear your thoughts!

    We are looking to gather insight into how people use various Autodesk applications and their thoughts on graphic related workflows within the the new Autodesk suites. We’d love to contact a few of you for an informal discussion. If you are interested in sharing your opinions with us, please respond privately to me and tell us a little about yourself.
    We are particularly interested in how users are using other Autodesk products together such as Inventor, Revit, AutoCAD within their project workflows.


    Thanks for your time! We look forward to hearing your thoughts.

      Thanks Ian, as a company we try to make sure that we are addressing the needs of our end users in a way that provides the maximum benefit. We are still looking for end users who would be willing to have a short conversation with us to help explain their needs and workflows so that we can best assist CAD and design professionals.

        Hi Sean,

        It would be really great if Revit could use GPU cores (cuda technology, etc.) with its Mental Ray rendering platform.

        Currently I don't think Revit uses the GPU at all when rendering and relies on CPU cores and RAM when processing
        and calculating during the render.

        GPU rendering really seems to be taking over the CG world--ala TwinMotion, Lumion, I-Ray, etc.

        We would use Revit to render much more if it could use GPU and reduce frame times from 1-10 minutes down to
        seconds or less. Now, we export via FBX and bring into 3dsMaxDesign to do hi-end renderings and animations.
        We'd rather stay in Revit if possible.

        cheers!

          hi

          3wishes

          1.

          is It possible that the drivers for geforce video cards to have the posibilty to make a working mechanism between child windows and multiple monitors? For example in Revit we don't need quadro. In the last 3 versions it is not programmed to take any advantage from the quadro series.We are happy about that.Geforces are enough. But we use multiple monitor setups. In revit you can have multiple windows opened. I call them child windows under Revit parent window. If I have Revit maximized over all the monitors and if one child window is in one monitor, I wish that if I maximize that child window to be aware about that monitor so it can be maximized only in the space of that monitor. Now if you maximize that child window it will spread an all monitors which is bad and instead of that you have to resize manually every single window per every monitor. The nvidia control panel for quadro has this possibility and also the geforce the difference is that in the geforce this part is broken(not working)

          2. now with the possibility of multi GPU and multi monitor can we have a driver to support a four monitor setup like 2x2 (2 up 2 down)?

          3.can you fix the bug that was in 400 and 500 geforce series that made the working in viewports in 3d max to be much slower that in the older series.?

            I second gaby 424 on #3

            3ds Max with the new Drivers feel a bit slugish when it comes to viewport navigation.

            Another Issue I've been having with 3ds max (Multiple Monitors) is:
            When I have my second monitor hooked up to my laptop via hdmi cable and I run 3ds max; if I have 3ds max on the secondary monitor maximized, when I try to pan with the middle mouse button, the cursor hops to the primary monitor (laptop) and it messes up the viewport I was trying to pan in. I have to zoom extents to get the model back in the view port. (btw I have the secondary monitor on my left hand side)

            If I change the secondary monitor to become the main display, then it works fine and I can pan without a problem.
            This issue only happens with multiple monitors.

            If I have my secondary monitor on the right hand side then it also works fine.

              I'd love to know more about the differences between quadro and geforce cards. It has always seemed like a huge marketing scam to me. Slap a different sticker on the card and charge 4 times as much. Yes I know there are genuine differences but with all the marketing double speak it is hard to understand if I really need a quadro card for Revit.

                Don't know if this is an Autodesk thing or an NVIDIA thing, but several of our laptops have a weird effect on the Titlebar in both Revit and AutoCAD.
                Our desktop support guy says is due to "the weird hack" that Autodesk uses to put the QAT and the Communications Center.

                Normally, in Windows 7 with Aero, the Windows Titlebar is semi-transparent.
                When we have the QAT in the Titlebar, it shows strange colors.
                Current work-around is to place the QAT below the Ribbon, but that's a work-around, not a fix.

                  Have you tried dumping the Aero theme and using maybe Windows Classic? I had all kinds of weird problems with Aero when I first jumped to Win7. Dumped it and haven't had any problems since...
