Over 2 million designers and engineers rely on SOLIDWORKS in order to bring their designs to life. With an intuitive, integrated, 3D design environment covering all aspects of product development, SOLIDWORKS maximizes productivity by focusing on the way engineers and product designers work. SOLIDWORKS-certified workstations are essential to shorten product development time, reduce costs, and improve quality, so it’s critical to have a BOXX APEXX computer workstation purpose-built to optimize the software’s features and seamlessly run SOLIDWORKS without workflow bottlenecks.
Selecting the number of processing cores in a SOLIDWORKS workstation is critical. SOLIDWORKS is a frequency bound application, meaning that it predominantly uses only one core. Since the frequency of that core determines performance more than any other variable, SOLIDWORKS recommended hardware with less cores (but higher frequency) is ideal. At BOXX, we tune our SOLIDWORKS workstations for performance, providing you with the fastest, most productive SOLIDWORKS certified hardware on the market. Contact one of our SOLIDWORKS performance specialists to custom-configure your ideal workstation.
Unlike 3D modeling and design tasks, SOLIDWORKS Simulation and Flow Simulation take advantage of multiple CPU cores especially if you have large studies with complex meshes. However, performance gains level off as you increase in core count. The APEXX S3 is an ideal solution as a performance tuned, multi-core CPU workstation.
For rendering workflows, you have multiple options. SOLIDWORKS Visualize can now utilize both your CPU and GPU. However, the GPU provides the most reduction in the rendering time so multi-GPU APEXX workstations are ideal for this. Many BOXX customers integrate CPU-based rendering tools like KeyShot into their workflows. In this scenario, you may require multiple CPU cores.
