If you can dream it, you can build it in 3ds Max®, the 3D software for modeling, animation, and rendering that allows you to create massive worlds in games and stunning scenes for design visualization. At Boxx, our team of experts can configure the ideal 3ds workstation for your specific workflows.
3D Modeling

This is a single-threaded task within 3ds Max. Unlike rendering, which is highly multi-threaded, the process of building up your meshes, extruding polygons and manipulating vertices only uses one CPU core. If you primarily use 3ds Max for modeling, then don’t waste money on a dual CPU workstation with dozens of CPU cores – because those extra CPU cores won’t help you. A single CPU 3ds workstation will work much better for your 3D modeling needs.

A 3D modeling workstation with a high frequency CPU will benefit your 3D modeling workflow. The safely overclocked BOXX APEXX 2 3ds workstation is a great choice for this type of workflow.

Rendering

Unlike 3D modeling and animation tasks, rendering your 3D assets is a highly multi-threaded process. The more CPU cores you have in your system, the better.

Offload Your Rendering! Rendering is a computationally intense task that should be offloaded. The purpose of a 3D workstation is to work and remain productive. Productivity comes to a halt when you tie up your 3ds workstation with rendering final frame animation sequences. BOXX offers unique, dedicated desk-side rendering solutions like the renderPRO as well as a complete turnkey render farm. If you rely on GPU rendering our APEXX 4 supports up to 4 full size GPUs and the APEXX 5 supports up to 5 GPUs.

Animation

3D animation has many similarities to a 3D modeling centric workflow. They are both single-threaded tasks. Multiple CPU cores will be of little help if this is your primary task.

We call these types of tasks frequency bound because performance is tied to the frequency of the CPU. 3ds computers with higher CPU clock speeds perform better at these tasks. Single socket APEXX 2 and APEXX 4 3ds workstations are great choices for this workflow.
