    Ok this has me baffled.
    Was checking the settings for alibre and noticed that only the Intel HD graphics chip is selectable.

    I updated the drivers for the Nvidia Geforce GT750M...but Alibre still does not see the card.
    I disabled the onboard Intel chip, but then laptop defaulted to MS standard rendering.

    How do I get the laptop/Alibre to use the Nvidea graphics card?
    Using WIn 10, totally up to date.

    Right Click on the Desktop, then select the Nvidia control panel.
    From the 3D Settings tab, select "Manage 3D Settings"
    Then under the "Program Settings" Tab, add Alibre in position 1 and then select the Nvidia card in psition 2, save and you should be good to go.

    Unfortunately, this works not for me. Is there any other setting that must be performed? AlibreLocation.JPG AlibreSetup.JPG DeviceManagerLists2.JPG Nvidia Settings.JPG

    Try the Graphics Display drop down option and select the Nvidia Card if it is shown as an option:-

    Another possibility is via the desktop shortcut (Also make sure you are running Alibre as Administrator):-
