Hi, We are starting to look at using the 3D / BIM side of Vetorworks Architect and rolling out throughout the office. I have drawn one of our projects, a large house, in 3D and am having issues with the speed of the program. Can I please have comments on the specifications of our iMacs as seen in the signature below. Comparing to the requirements shown online it looks like we have more than enough RAM however I am wondering if it is the graphics card / processor that is causing the issues. The file I am working on is 210mb - could this also cause issues?
Hi folks, I currently split my work flow between my desktop machine (i5-6600, 32GB RAM, GTX 970) and my Macbook Pro Retina 2012 (i7-3820, 16 GB RAM, G650M), but I'd really like to move to a smaller laptop. Everything I've read about Vectorworks hardware requirements suggests that you'd be a fool to attempt Vectorworks with any less than a 1GB video card, but I'm wondering how much of this is due to rendering? I use Spotlight to draw lighting plots and site layouts, and I'll simply never, ever use the Vectorworks rendering engine. Heading into a long summer tour, I'm looking at ultrabooks like the XPS 9370 or the Yoga 920 (both are i7-8550u, 16GB RAM, Intel 620 graphics) and obviously this would be considerably less capable for rendering, but I'm wondering what kind of experience I'd see if I simply never, ever leave wireframe or Plan view? Any advice appreciated. Thanks!
