Hi Everyone
Just thought I post the next doodle I’m working on , to show other newb’s what can be done with just the deluxe version of TurboCad . May have made a booboo on the tyre choice  of material .

O’ just to add I’m not an engineer so I know it won't work in the real world

Hello Everyone
         Thanks for the comments . First of  must apologize for spelling ( no one noticed  Aernde instead of Arundel ) , but posted in a rush at the end of work  . Speaking of which the company designer has come up with some new furniture so it might be a while before I get some more done on this , hoping to end up with a old  ( seventy's ) F1 .

Hi
Just thought I put up the next bit of the puzzle  . Its the calliper for the front brake .
The bolts are a little long at the moment as this is the deluxe it dose not allow me to do the
screw of the bolt , I’m taking it home where I use the pro version , so will put them on there . 
On that note I have a question , when I render it at full (at home) , it comes up out of memory
Is this graphic card or system .

Nice job Arundel.

Yes, out of memory problems are an issue you will need to address, by simplifying your model.
Are your screws, blocks, or duplicates of an individual object?  Blocks use less resources/memory for repeated items.
You may be rendering details which cannot be seen, or would be better illustrated differently, threads for example.
You may also want to look at using xrefs, to split your drawing objects, into separate external drawings - see the help file.
Do a search on the forum for "out of memory" and see what you can find.

Regards Tim

when I render it at full (at home) , it comes up out of memory
Is this graphic card or system . 

I had many OOM errors till I installed a clock to watch the RAM usage, CPU usage and Core temperatures.  I was surprised to learn that the RAM doesn't flucuate during renders, (so increasing your RAM won't help) but the CPUs (8 in my case) max out at 100%, and overheat very quickly while rendering at "full".  Use the suggestions Tim gave you (above) to cut down on the size of your file being rendered.  Also, if you get a copy of Softbox (see these forums for details) , render times increase dramatically, but the results are far superior, and the CPU runs cooler - eliminating most of the OOM messages.  Other than that you might want to take an angle grinder to those long bolts...that'll cut 'em down to size!  ;)

I come to find that a revolve thread or just a plain screw without threads aid in assemblage but a single threaded bolt doesn't draw much cpu load the rendering process.Along with light adjustments less lights maybe one or two, luminance lighting draws cpu usage at my end.I find there isn't much memory draw in my case also.

Your memory problem.

By any chance are you using the 32 bit version of TC.  I struck this problem with one of my models using TC18 just as TC19 64 bit appeared.  I upgraded as I have 7GB of RAM but 32 bit versions have a limit of 2GB RAM that can be accessed.  Since upgrading, I have not had any memory problems during renders. 

I think your racing car is great.

Thanks for the comments
Its only version 16 , so it will be a 32 bit , but the system that I’m running at the moment is only 32 bit that is one of the reasons why I need to save up for a new P.C. And why I have not upgraded to 19 yet .
But with all the bugs ( see the forums )not ironed out of 19 yet their is no rush

Veyy nice work indeed, if your intenetion was to draw the full model in details then TC pre 64bit (well from v14 to v18) does struggle with a lot of detail, I had a model which rendered in v11, but wouldn't in v14 to v18, hope you manage to overcome the memory limitations.

I have seen most of the bugs in TC19 sorted in the 26.1 (nearly) automatic update.  When you think that other software houses over a year to get bug fixes out, IMSI's release in about 3 weeks was commendable.  Getting rid of render memory problems will be nice when you finally upgrade.  Meanwhile building you model in parts, testing the renders and also testing that ultimately the bits fit together is probably the way to go.

When you do upgrade to 64 bit Windows and TC, adding RAM chips to maximise available memory is a good thing to plan.  But you will need to check that Windows uses that memory and the next paragraph is my note on how to do this (as my 3GB system on 64 bit Win7 "saw" only 2GB).  I added 4GB RAM and made sure Win7 saw the full 7GB.

Go to Start, in the search bar type msconfig and press enter
System Configuration window will open on the screen. Click on tab named "boot". Click on "Advanced Options" and uncheck the box for "Maximum Memory" (7168).

There is an example on  http://forums.turbocad.com/index.php/topic,9146.0.html on my post of 16 May where the boat deck had problems rendering the deck.  Now , no problem.
