Dear Rhino whisperers,
I’m struggling with some processes in Rhino 6 (also trying WIP) and am wondering if I can speed it all up by investing in a better machine.
I’m trying to open point cloud data in PLY format, then remove unnecessary points to a separate layer (or deleting). I then contour/section and loft through the rebuilt series of curves. Once I have an accurate nurbs surface I export it and everything is fine. The editing of the pointcloud is extremely painful.
These PLY files are approximately 200-500mb (the last is 458mb) and when resaved as 3dm they become much bigger, like 2.2gb.
In an ideal world, I’d have a machine that could help process pointclouds faster and Vray to render a bit faster too. At the moment a 1000/1000 pixel render is taking the best part of 12 hours. Penguin is also very slow.
this is my current machine:
Any advice would be much appreciated,
