I have been using Rhino since 2005 starting with 3, then 4, and now 5. I manufacture aircraft propellers (since 1983) from 10hp up to 480hp. Rhino has and will always be my designing choice…
Having said that, … I have purchased an EINSCAN PRO +, 3D scanner from Shining3d, to scan huge propellers to reproduce them on a cnc router from Shopsabre in Minneapolis…
Big problem… the STL files that are generated vary from NEVER below 350mb up to and including 1.2Gb each. I can see 1,8Gb stl files generated in 3 to 6 months
Opening in Rhino (if it happens ) results in a wait of 30 to 40 minutes. Manipulating these files takes 30 minutes per command using mesh tools.
due to the extreme accuracy needed , 0,2mm one can not reduce the mesh at all. No route there…So, 90% of the time Rhino freezes solid.
The computer specs are CPU 3820 @3,6Ghz overclocked to 4.5Ghz, 24 Gb Kingston memory 1600 , GPU is a MSI 1060 with all the bells and whistles, overclocked by 30%. The m/board is a ASUS P9X79PRO. The program is running from a SSD Samsung 512Gb. Operating system is Windows 10 64bit.
I have ordered a INTEL 7900 2066 CPU with 32Gb Corsair memory, and a Gigabyte m/board to fit all the hardware onto as a last resort.
- Will this speed up Rhino’s reaction times between mesh commands?
- If not, what will?
- If all of the above are the incorrect questions, what should I be asking then?
Positive, in detail as far as possible, suggestions, will be greatly appreciated.
