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

3D MODELING

This is a single-threaded task within 3D. 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 3D 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 3D 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.

RECOMMENDED SPECS;

DUAL XEON E5-2683V3 2.0-3.0Ghz 28 Core 56 Threads
64gb DDR4
5x GTX 1070 8gb
SM961 512gb PCIe SSD
4x 2tb HDD w/ LSI Raid Card

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.

Using An External Render Engine?

Most people are these days which could change the System you choose depending on the engine your using for rendering.
