CAD Design and VR Deployment
As you may already know, the single greatest productivity bottleneck for CAD design applications like Autodesk Revit, is the frequency of the CPU. BOXX overclocked workstations are ideal for this reason. Virtual Reality relies on the same technology found in high end PC gaming. The greatest bottleneck to seamless VR experiences is the graphics card. High end consumer gaming cards offer the fastest frame rates and are the best choice for consuming VR content.
While we usually recommend Nvidia Quadro cards for professional 3D applications like Revit, a top end GeForce card like the GTX 1070 or 1080 will be adequate, especially if VR deployment is the mission critical aspect of the machine's intended use.
Dedicated 3D Modelling and Design
If you're looking for a workstation whose primary purpose is the creation of 3D CAD models used in VR environments, then consider the following. When creating 3D architectural assets for use in virtual reality applications, you'll likely rely on popular design tools like Revit, Sketchup and 3ds Max. 3D Modelling and texturing is predominantly a single-threaded process. Compared to other workstation components, the clock speed of the CPU has the greatest influence on productivity for these tasks.
Our popular overclocked workstations are the fastest solutions on the market for these tasks. visit the product pages for more information on the overclocked APEXX 2 Model 2402,APEXX 2 Model 3403 and the APEXX 4 Model 7403.
Render to Texture (Texture Baking)
If you plan to incorporate textures based off of baked global illumination, you'll want a system with a lot of CPU cores. The APEXX 2 Model 3403 is a good choice for this with 10 overclocked CPU cores. If texture baking is a frequent part of your workflow, it would be better to offload the rendering processing to a dedicated compute device like the renderPRO.
Creating virtual reality environments requires a lot of processing and graphics power, especially when you’re utilizing heavy VR CAD software such as Autodesk Revit or 3ds Max. By not using an optimized workstation for your productivity, you can quickly fall short of your design capabilities. At BOXX, our custom configured hardware solutions are specifically designed with overclocked processors and high-end graphics capabilities to optimize your virtual reality workflow.
Our team of BOXX performance specialists are aware of what it takes to create an optimised solution for when it comes to working on VR design, development and deployment. We aim to not only build the best desktop VR PCs, but also provide solutions that are suited to your specific computing needs. By choosing BOXX for your computing solution your virtual reality performance will always be running smoothly and efficiently for your everyday workflow.
