Over 2 million designers and engineers worldwide rely on SOLIDWORKS in order to bring their designs to life. From cool gadgets to advanced innovations designed to improve our world, SOLIDWORKS empowers organizations to transform ideas into reality. 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 every day. SOLIDWORKS solutions are essential to shortening product development time, reducing costs, and improving quality, but for users, 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 your 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, a workstation with less cores (but higher frequency) is ideal. At BOXX, we professionally overclock our SOLIDWORKS workstations to 5.1GHz, providing you with the fastest, most productive SOLIDWORKS computer on the market.
Unlike modeling and design tasks, rendering and simulation are multi-threaded and take advantage of multiple CPU cores, however, performance gains level off after ten cores. Therefore, an ideal solution for SOLIDWORKS simulation is an overclocked, eight-core or ten- core APEXX workstation.
If you need to render your SOLIDWORKS assemblies, you have options, each with different compute requirements. SOLIDWORKS Visualize is a standalone, GPU-accelerated rendering tool based on NVIDIA® Iray®, so overclocked, multi-GPU APEXX workstations are ideal for this type of workflow. Many BOXX customers integrate CPU-based rendering tools like KeyShot into their workflows. In this scenario, you may require dual Intel® Xeon® solutions with multiple CPU cores.
Many engineers and product designers require mobility. Whether you work remotely or are constantly on the road, you need a SOLIDWORKS mobile workstation capable of handling large assemblies. GoBOXX SLM is an ultra-thin and light mobile workstation featuring a fast Intel® Note: GeForce drivers are not certified for SOLIDWORKS. MXL VR is intended for delivering mobile virtual reality experiences. Core™ i7 processor and professional NVIDIA Quadro graphics. GoBOXX MXL is a true desktop replacement, featuring a desktop-class Intel® Core™ i7 processor, 64GB of RAM, and high-end NVIDIA Quadro graphics.
