    Revit performance is HORRIBLE

    Hi guys

    My colleague has a problem with his Revit, which I don't know how to fix.
    His basic performance is pretty standard for working on a laptop, but when he tries to open/save/sync or load a link it takes him AGES!
    I tried his files on my computer and I did everything in a matter of minutes, which on his pc took more than 50 minutes.

    I tried copying his files to his c: and open them, which did nothing and it's not because of his ssd, which is a 850 pro, and works wonderfully in windows. We also tried reinstalling Revit to no avail.

    Does anyone have a clue what is causing this?

    Hi Iberkim,

    having the same issue here, our IT guy finds that I have a problem with my Hard Drive, maybe is the same for you? :hide: regards

      To even begin answering that we first need:

      the exact specifications of both of your PCs, including software build versions
      the network typology this is being conducted on (wifi/lan etc)
      the size, and complexity, of the model(s) files in question

      so many factors.



      ....and I only came to chime in on the topic "Sure does!" but note this is a serious thread, so refrained (up until this very moment).

        Hi snowyweston,

        I'm agree with you, there are a lot of factors that can be the source of our problem, and as you state "this is a serious thread", so I'm posting my system and build specs, and the size of my model which I find normal :hide:,

        I'm Running a
        DELL Precision T5500 with
        WIN 10 Professional
        Intel XEON X 5650 2.67GHz
        2.67GHz
        RAM 24 GB
        System 64 Bits

        Autodesk Revit 2016 Build 16.0.1185.0 UPDATE 7 For R2

        File Size: 49 MB


        I'm experiencing this behavior since we had new printers (a week ago), but I don't believe the printer pilots had some influence on my machine performance, regards

          Neither Windows nor Revit are very good about cleaning up after themselves.
          Try deleting temporary files.
          First, in got to C:\Windows\Temp hit Ctrl-A the select everything and shift-delete them all.
          Shift-delete is permanent & not simply moving to Recycle Bin
          You will get errors about files being in use. Check the "Do this for all" box, and then Skip those.
          You may need admin rights to access this folder

          Next, in Windows Explorer type
          %temp%
          in the address bar.
          Delete everything in there, too.

          Finally, if the slowdown happens when just opening the File dialog (Open/Save) or the Application Menu (big blue R), he may have a link to a location that no longer exists in his Recent Files
          In Windows Explorer, type in
          %AppData%
          then browse to Roaming\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit 2017 (or whichever version you're using)
          Edit the Revit.INI file and blank out the Recent Files List:
          [Recent File List]
          File1=
          File2=
          Don't delete them, just set the values to blank

          That might help a little, but if it doesn't, I'd also put my money on a failing hard drive.

              I ran a test/benchmark on the harddrive (ssd) and it was performing way better than mine. So that does not seem to be the problem

              Hardware:


              I'm running an HP Elitebook 8570p
              i7-3540M @ 3.00GHz
              12gb of RAM 1600MHz
              AMD 7570M 4gb
              Kingston SV300 240gb ssd


              He's running a Lenovo Thinkpad T540p
              i5-4810MQ @2.8GHz
              16gb of RAM
              NVidea 730m 1gb
              Samsung 850 PRO 512gb


              Software:


              Windows 7 Enterprise SP1


              Revit is 20160512_0715(x64)
              Update Release 14


              We are running on LAN on corporate network, with a fiberconnection to a windows server.


              The models in question is 26mb, 135mb and 156mb, all with fairly low complexity (structure). But his problems are not limited to these files, but he says the pc is running fine in all other aspects.

                Yes GMcDowellJr
                ,
                it is a tiny file I'm totally agree, but since the project I've been working is Just at the beginning phase, I 'm pretty sure as time goes by in my file it will be more weighty :coffee:

                Anyway, after the replacement of my hard drive the performance of Revit 2016 goes much more better than before!!

                  You can try disabling the Integrated graphics on the ThinkPad in the BIOS...but your system is going to work better than his since you have a better processor and more RAM along with a better video card.

                  Unfortunately you are going to have issues too if you don't watch what is installed on your system. A 240GB drive is not enough. Revit likes having a large swap file, so keep an eye on your temp directories if your drive status is in the red.

                    I had that EXACT same SSD (Samsung 850 pro), and when i had the wrong SSD drivers installed in WINDOWS, Revit performance was horrifying. Literally, benchmarked 2-3x slower. Found the right drivers for the SSD in Windows, and the machine got 2-3x faster in Revit. No joke.
