Hi all, I am new to Rhino 5 be using it for Engineering Design work and Achitectural Designs.
I have experience in a number of CAD softwares and I am looking forward to adding Rhino to the list.
First things first I need is some help on the specifications for a new laptop I will have to purchase to do the job.
I have some ideas on a setup after hours of scouring the net for a laptop in Australia. This is what I have come up with (unfortunately I am stuck with a laptop and not a desktop).
Processor: i7 Quadcore 4720HQ or 4710HQ
Memory: 16Gb 1600Mhz
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M 4Gb DDR3 or GTX 970M 3Gb GDDR5
Drive: 256 SSD & 1TB SSD or 256 SSD & 1TB Hard Drive or ITB SSD
Screen: 15.6" Full HD 1920x1080 or UHD 3840x2160 4k eDP wide view angle.
I hope I am heading in the right direction with the above specs. Some of them are setup in a configuration that depends on the brand and model. I would greatly appreciate any advice or any of the components that would not be suitable.
My expectations will be that I will be using most of the capabilities of Rhino 5. For example the add-ons that could include actions such as rendering of intricate designs and on a large scale requiring large amount of memory and speed.
I presume that a 17.3" laptop with a i7 4870HQ Quad Core, Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M with 4Gb GDDR5 VRAM, Memory of 32Gb DDR3 1800MHz,
2x Drives 1TB SSD would more than enough to do the job, unfortunately it is only a dream at this stage.
I hope what I am am asking is not to much of a big ask and any tips again will be greatly appreciated.
