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)

Titan X170-M - 12th Gen Intel Core Series Processors Mobile Workstation PC for CAD Designs up to 14 CPU Cores Titan X170-M - 12th Gen Intel Core Series Processors Mobile Workstation PC for CAD Designs up to 14 CPU Cores

Not every power user who has to take to the road needs a portable rendering station.The X170M is perfect for the professional who prioritizes CPU threads over GPU power to create a powerhouse notebook that is also truly portable. If you’re a non-3D creative professional on the go the X170M may just be the perfect workstation for you.




Starting Price: $1,595.00
Titan S161 - 11th Gen Intel Core Series Processors Rackmount Workstation PC up to 10 CPU cores Titan S161 - 11th Gen Intel Core Series Processors Rackmount Workstation PC up to 10 CPU cores

The S161 rack-mounted workstation is quite possibly the most balanced workstation solution we offer, now in a space-efficient format taking up only 4Us of rack space. Starting with a modest yet powerful base configuration, you can configure your S161 into exactly the sort of compact CAD/CAM workstation you need.





Starting Price: $1,925.00
Titan W161 - 11th Gen Intel Core Series Processors Workstation PC for CAD Modeling up to 10 CPU cores Titan W161 - 11th Gen Intel Core Series Processors Workstation PC for CAD Modeling up to 10 CPU cores

With its sporty twin-fan front intake and clean sports car lines, you’d be forgiven for thinking that our W161 is another hotrod PC meant for entertainment. The truth is this one of our most balanced workstations aimed at accelerating the workflow of CAD/CAM professionals while providing enough multi-core power to remain flexible. Sporting the latest Intel Comet Lake i9 technology, the W161 is a sign that your CAD workstations need an upgrade.





Starting Price: $1,995.00
Titan S261 - 13th Gen Intel Core Series Processors 4U Rackmount Workstation PC for CAD/CAM up to 24 CPU Cores Titan S261 - 13th Gen Intel Core Series Processors 4U Rackmount Workstation PC for CAD/CAM up to 24 CPU Cores

Designing a server for CAD/CAM users is always a challenge. These workloads benefit from fast single-core performance, but having many cores speeds up CPU-based final rendering. Use a CPU with too many cores, and the minute-to-minute design experience can suffer thanks to low single-core performance. Intel’s 12th and 13th generation hybrid desktop CPUs offer the perfect solution, with fast performance cores for the design phase and numerous efficiency cores to tear through CPU rendering when you’re done.




Starting Price: $2,050.00
Titan W261 - 13th Gen Intel Core Series Processors Workstation PC for CAD/CAM up to 24 CPU Cores Titan W261 - 13th Gen Intel Core Series Processors Workstation PC for CAD/CAM up to 24 CPU Cores

Dynamite may come in small packages, but the Titan W261 is more like a brick of C4 ready to blow a hole through your workload. With the latest Alder Lake 12th-generation Intel CPU technology, you can crunch the big numbers in the background while getting on with writing those reports (or watching YouTube) in the foreground.




Starting Price: $2,195.00
Titan W422 - Intel Xeon W-2200 Series Processors Workstation PC for VR Design, Rendering up to 18 CPU Cores Titan W422 - Intel Xeon W-2200 Series Processors Workstation PC for VR Design, Rendering up to 18 CPU Cores

Virtual reality is all the rage these days and the system requirements for consuming it are going down all the time. But what about those who want to create the next big VR experience? We’ve taken the latest professional-grade components and created one of the most cost-effective 3D Rendering workstations with VR-grade horsepower on the market. Welcome to the W422.




Starting Price: $3,675.00
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.




Starting Price: $5,550.00
