This article will help you get your laptop to use your high powered Nvidia Quadro graphics card instead of the power saving intel on chip graphics for SOLIDWORKS.
In the new Windows 10 updated version, you can search from the Windows start button and type Graphics to bring up the Graphics Settings app. Open the app like this:
Next browse to SLDWORKS.exe like this: C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\ then SLDWRKS, it may show the .exe, it may not. That depends on a Windows setting, either way, select it.
Now you can click on the options for SOLIDWORKS, and select High performance:
and Save this setting.
When you reboot, your system should always choose the Nvidia Quadro for SOLIDWORKS !
