Tweak GPU Card for Hypermesh

Recommended Posts

I have 2 workstation laptops. Both of them have professional graphics.

One has P2000 and the other one has RTX3000.

However, whenever I try to use hypermesh, hypermesh only uses my CPU and so my GPU is doing nothing making it useless.

 

Does anyone know what do I do in order for Hypermesh to use the full potential of my GPU? 

I already tried to tweak the NVidia Control Panel to use my GPU as default but still Hypermesh ignores my GPU.

How do you know your GPU is doing nothing within Hypermesh?

 

When you click Ctrl+Shift+Esc, under "Processes" or "Performance" tabs, you'll see what hardware is currently working on a certain program. My GPU is always doing nothing no matter how many HM models I open and run. I have tried opening 10 HM models and 5 HV models, my GPU is still not helping. Rather, more than 50% of my CPU and close to 75% of RAM are being utilized. My processor is Xeon (16 cores) and 16Gb of DDR4.

With your Ctrl+Shift+Esc you get "processes list" on CPU, no more.

If you think your GPU is useless, try to remove your card P2000 and run Hypermesh again?

 

 

When I use other software, I can see that my GPU (not the onboard GPU) is working more than my CPU. So I am wondering if there's something I need to do in order for my computer to use my GPU when using Hypermesh. For big models with many holes, just breaking the surfaces takes a heck of a time and the HM is using a lot of CPU, not my GPU.

As I can understand, Hyperworks Solvers (RADIOSS, Optistruct) can use GPU for computing.

Within a Hypermesh/Hyperworks interactive sessions, I think GPU will be used for graphical render only not for another computing.

 

Maybe Altair expert could confirm that?
