Display Question

Dear all
Does it add time to the "analysis time" to display the window that shows the animation of the structure?, is it a significant time?

Thanks

yea, as any extra processing requires extra time .. how much extra depends on your model and size and the type of analysis (the more time spent in the analysis crunching through state determination, equation solving, ..... the less noticable will be the graphic part) .. you could always time it with and without the display option.
