Used for years across multiple industries, Autodesk AutoCAD stands out as one of the premiere software applications for architecture, engineering, and construction professionals. Used to create highly detailed 2D and 3D designs alike, maximize AutoCAD performance by running it on a BOXX workstation.



Upon its release in 1982, AutoCAD marked an important step in the evolution of CAD software and has since grown into one of the market’s more popular programs. AEC professionals rely on AutoCAD (as do a host of other users) to perform project-critical tasks like geometry creation, drafting, drawing, annotation, and surface visualization. AutoCAD is also backed by TrustedDWG technology that makes it easy to share and store anything you create across cloud, desktop, and mobile platforms. AutoCAD's compatibility with other software and potential for customization further enhances its appeal. With so many crucial workflows being run through AutoCAD, it's crucial that users have a workstation specifically configured to maximize performance.





2D Design

At its core, AutoCAD is a single-threaded application. This means the number of CPU cores your workstation has doesn't matter as much as the frequency at which a smaller number of cores run. When using AutoCAD to complete 2D tasks like table creation, centerline editing, layout fine-tuning, or geometric object modification, AEC professionals benefit from a workstation featuring CPU clock speeds that allow them to interact and manipulate large datasets. A top AutoCAD workstation option to drive peak performance is the APEXX S3. With up to six cores professionally overclocked to 4.8 GHz, APEXX S3 also features 64GB of memory and up to three GPUs to support documentation and design workflows alike.

3D Modeling

In addition to using AutoCAD to produce 2D designs, AEC professionals can also use it to create 3D models. AutoCAD visualization allows users to create and communicate nearly any type of design. With tools like surface, solid, and mesh modeling, users can generate 3D models from 2D drawings and more easily demonstrate navigation around their designs during walkthroughs or fly-bys with stakeholders.

Again, it's important to note that AutoCAD is a frequency-bound application, so the best workstation is one that is optimized for single-threaded workflows, i.e. fewer cores running at higher speeds. BOXX addresses this need by working with our hardware partners to professionally overclock CPUs and deliver an optimal AutoCAD workstation.

in the USA

At BOXX, we’re engineers and creative professionals too. In fact, we rely on SolidWorks, 3Ds Max, and other applications every day. Our chassis are designed by BOXX engineers and proudly manufactured in the USA, but they aren’t built for sending emails or gaming. They’re crafted out of aircraft quality aluminum and steel strengthening components. That means maximum airflow and cool, quiet operation—even with the most demanding hardware configurations.

Tech Support

At BOXX, we understand that you need to be back working just as soon as possible when something goes wrong. That's why YOUR productivity is always our top priority. Our in-house technical support operatives will attempt to recreate any issues you have in an effort to reproduce even the most obscure problem. We'll even overnight parts when necessary during your premium warranty period.


The BOXX Workflow

Keep working while you render! BOXX offers unique hardware packages specifically designed to reduce the bottlenecks that plague professional software applications. By offloading your rendering, simulation, or other multi-threaded tasks, creativity never has to be put on hold by your hardware. That's the philosophy behind The BOXX Workflow.



We understand that it's important to know where your money goes when purchasing a premium workstation. BOXX offers services and solutions that go far beyond what you'll find at Dell, HP, or Apple.
