In combination with older graphics hardware, limitations are possible while working with pCon.planner.

There is a variety of ways in which you may be able to improve the performance of the design application:

  1.  The Render Settings are to be found in the Render group on the View tab – click the icon on the right along the lower edge. When the dialog opens, change over to the Quality tab. Set Textual Quality to Simple and the Shadow Quality to Normal.
  2. On the Edit tab in the Program Settings there are two items relating to synchronization: they are Synchronize centers in orthographic views and Synchronize fields of view in orthographic views. Both should be disabled if the graphic performance is weak.
  3. Program Settings, tab Miscellaneous: The Level of Detail option influences the quality of solids in planning. A high value improves the graphical display of these objects, but may have a negative effect on performance. Therefore, you should select a low level of detail if the graphics performance is weak.
  4. You should avoid opening pCon.planner more than once, as the hardware resources required would then have to be shared rather than simply being available to the one instance.
  5. When you are using your computer to operate pCon.planner, do not use any other 3D applications at the same time. They will make demands on the same hardware resources, and performance will be reduced for whichever you are trying to use.
  6. Work in one window without subdividing into a number of viewports.
  7. Reducing the size of the screen area used for the software on your monitor will mean the graphics are computed faster.
  8. Make sure you have the latest graphics card drivers (if possible not older than 1 year). You can usually find them on the websites of the respective graphics card manufacturer.

There may also be some loss of performance if the current design is very large and complex, in which case we recommend the same solutions as suggested above.
