Does anyone have any thoughts or comments for dealing with large 3D models? I have been working with a detailed model in TC19 Platinum this last week that is larger than 18 Megs. I have of course been turning off layers and working in draft (or wire) when applicable to assist with rendering. When printing and rendering the final project it takes several minutes on my i7 64 bit system.
FYI, I started the drawing on a 32 bit system, when it got to big this system could not deal with it and would crash.
I am curious about how anyone else might handle the renderings of these large files.
Currently looking at upgrading my Desktop system to:
Xeon E5-1607, 3.0Ghz, 10M Four Core Processor
8GB DDR3 RDIMM 1600, ECC Ram
1GB nVidia Quadro 2000 Video Card
Any comments before I order this system? Should I get more "cores" on the processor? I don't think TurboCAD will utilize multiple cores more than the speed of the processor, correct?
Thanks for any comment or thought.
