How do I use Performance Graphics in FEMAP?

  • FEMAP 11.1 and later add a new graphics architecture to improve graphics performance of both the initial draw and dynamic rotation. This requires OpenGL 4.2. If your graphics card supports OpenGL 4.2, FEMAP will have a message in the message window such as:
  • Full OpenGL Hardware Acceleration (Double Buffered).
  • Your graphics card supports OpenGL 4.2.
  • If your graphics card doesn’t support OpenGL 4.2 or later, check with your graphics card vendor to see if there is an updated graphics driver with OpenGL 4.2 support. If your graphics card does support OpenGL 4.2 or later, you can turn on Performance Graphics.
    1. Choose File > Preferences.
    2. Select the Graphics tab.
    3. Check the box next to Performance Graphics.
    4. Click OK.
