SKETCHUP WORKSTATION PC


Sketchup is a fantastic little 3D modeling and drawing program that was first developed by @Last Software, sold to Google and is now owned by Trimble Navigation.

Sketchup is relatively easy to use and has been put to use in architecture, engineering, film and video game projects. There is both a free and professional version of the software available and a large and vibrant community that contributes to an open-source library of Sketchup format models online.

SYSTEM RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SKETCHUP:
Sketchup is requirements are actually quite modest and a low-end Xeon or high-end i7 CPU with eight to sixteen gigabytes of RAM will generally be just fine. However, Sketchup is a stickler for strict and comprehensive OpenGL compliance, so we strongly recommend that you purchase a workstation with a professional GPU that has been certified in this way. Integrated Intel graphics should be avoided for this very reason, as there have been reports of incompatibilities between Sketchup and some Intel GPUs.

Operating systems supported by SketchUp
Windows 10 64-Bit (Pro)
Windows 8.1 64-bit (pro)
Windows 7 64-bit (Professional and Ultimate)

X299 VULCAN - Intel Cascade Lake-X Core i9 All Cores Overclocked / 3D Rendering Workstation Computer X299 VULCAN - Intel Cascade Lake-X Core i9 All Cores Overclocked / 3D Rendering Workstation Computer

In mythology Vulcan was the god of blacksmiths and the forge. In other words, he was the god of technology. We reserve the name “Vulcan” for our own limit-pushing machines that have been tuned to get the most out of their carefully-selected components. The Vulcan 10 brings the latest in 10th-generation Core i9 technology to the mid-tower form-factor. The Vulcan rig is one of our most customized systems yet and performs in a way no stock system with the same components can. If you’re looking for a powerful multi-core workstation for 3D rendering or any thread-hungry workloads, the X299 Vulcan 10 is in a class of its own.
