  1. hey guys, so i just got my hands on a 2013 Mac Pro(12-Core Intel Xeon, 2 FirePro D700 6 GB, and 64gb of ram) and my 2018 baseline macbook pro seems to out perform it... is there anyone still using a 2013 mac pro. Has VW just moved past hardware from 2013? i can never remember what part of the system VW uses the most. Does it help that the mac pro has 2 graphics cards? does the 12 core Xeon help or hurt it? does VW2020 prefer clock speed over core count? my main workflow is Spotlight and occasionally OpenGL/renderworks. thanks guys.
  2. Hello I am working on a show, and experience heavy performance issues. I don't think the file is especially more complex, then what I have been doing earlier. However the file size is 123 mb. Simple tasks, as making a Hidden line viewport, and moving around the file suddenly slows down. As well I can se that it take up a large amount of RAM. At the moment around 26gb. I am running on: Mac book pro 15" 2018 2,6 GHz Intel Core i7 16 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB I have a referenced file linked. Yesterday I added some schematic views, which felt like slowing the performance even more. Do you have any suggestions about how to performance uptimize, or may there be a bug in the software? Do any of you have any input? Have you experienced the same about schematic views? Best from Mathias
  3. Hi My current Macbook Pro (late 2015) is slow with VW 2019 / VW2020. I have waited for the Macbook Pro 16" to come out. I am in Australia and end of year sales at various electronics stores are selling it at $400 cheaper than the Apple Store for the standard off the shelf models. Upgrading the specs means getting it from Apple and spending a lot more money ($1240 at least). The size of the hard drive is not an issue as I do not keep much on my laptop. I have a souped up 2015 Imac in the office - it will be significantly slower than the new off the shelf 16" mind you according to the Cinebench R20 scores. I will upgrade the Imac sometime soon. I like to have 2 computers - can render on one and work on reports on the other when in the office and I do a lot of my work on the move both for my own clients and for other architects hence I need a laptop. Has anyone had experience with the 16" performance with the i9 8 core, 16gb, 2.3 ghz 4gb, 5500m graphic chip for 3d VW for and rendering? I can upgrade the 16gb memory later but NOT the graphics card and it's memory. If the off the shelf model is fine with rendering in VW etc I will take the saving and put that money and the money I would spend on upgrading memory etc towards a new desktop. Thanks PS I am in a Mac environment and all of the architects I work for use Apple so a PC is not an option.
  4. What is the current consensus on pc/mac specs for optimal rendering/operational performance with VW Spotlight 2017? Currently running: HP Zbook 17 G3 Processor Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1535M v5 @ 2.90GHz, 2904 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s) Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 64.0 GB Adapter Type Quadro M4000M, NVIDIA compatible And running into severe lag in most layers/views.
  5. I did a test this evening with an old 13" macbook pro and a brand new, maxed out, 15" pro. Vectorworks took 40 seconds to start up on both systems. Does anyone have a beefy windows laptop (xps or a gaming laptop) to let me know if it is any better? Thanks!
