solidworks workstation

SOLIDWORKS ® leads the global 3D computer-aided design (CAD) industry with easy-to-use software that trains and supports engineering and design teams worldwide. In order to drive tomorrow's innovation, engineers and product designers require BOXX SOLIDWORKS workstations certified by Dassault Systemes.

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.

Design & Modeling

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 performance tune our SOLIDWORKS workstations to 5.2GHz, providing you with the fastest, most productive SOLIDWORKS computer on the market.

Rendering & Simulation

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, so an ideal solution for SOLIDWORKS simulation is an overclocked, eight 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 multiple CPU cores.
