Hardware

As a guide, when looking at the spec of a CAD machine it is important to understand what type of work you will be undertaking. There are 4 key areas to consider, 1. Processor, 2.Graphics Cards, 3.RAM and 4.Hardrive

Depending on the type of work you do, you may need to spec higher in one area than the another. As a general rule;

Large assembly work/Simulation = More RAM

Rendering = Better Graphics card

To ensure you get the best machine for the type of work you do make sure you get in touch for the latest recommendations.

If you would like a bespoke appraisal of your software usage so you can spec your new hardware to suit your requirements, feel free to get in touch.
