123d Design not responding? It was working, please help.

by TylerTotally

Hey guys, I have been drawing with 123d design for a few years now. I was so bummed when they discontinued it. I woke up one morning with an idea in my head and then went to draw it and.... it shows me the title screen and says "not responding" I have lost the installation file, and im wondering if there is anything I could change in its home folder, I don't know?

Hope we can get it working ; )

123D won't use my dedicated graphics card

by JayDezi

I just installed 123D design on my new laptop but i've been using it for a while. I can load and run 123D design just fine but it won't recognize my graphics card. (its an Nvidea Geforce gtx 960M) It says i don't have the right driver but i know i have the latest one. Autodesk actually made a patch for this (solves errors with autodesk choosing wrong graphics card) on their professional grade products (AutoCAD, Inventor, etc.) but i don't see any solutions and the official 123D help forums were recently disbanded.

Has anyone had this problem or can you suggest a solution? The resolution also looks terrible on this computer compared to my old one. I don't know why that is or how to change that. My laptop is 64bt vs 32 so i thought that might have something to do with it. There doesn't seem to be any native controls for changing the graphical settings.

Thanks in advance guys!

getting objects to sit flush with each other

by FluxCo

I have assembled a number of objects for my design but they are not all sitting level with each other. I remember there was a trick involving a extending a line / plane to split an object to get rid of the raised bits.Does any one know how to do this?
