When architecture, engineering and construction professionals need to review all their carefully designed models, they turn to Navisworks. The solution is key to project analysis and coordination, so ensuring you have sufficient hardware to power this crucial software is just as important.

3D MODEL REVIEW & DESIGN

A primary use for Navisworks’ includes a feature-rich solution for reviewing and analyzing 3D models. For instance, AEC professionals can detect clashes in design and inspect model functionality. While such a solution indeed requires sufficient computing power, a common misconception assumes that the best Navisworks workstation is the one with the highest number of CPU cores. Rather, for critical Navisworks features like 3D model review and design, which are single-threaded workflows, any Navisworks workstation benefits from increased CPU frequency.

Lacking computing capacity to inspect models on a deadline can be a costly drag. To ensure uptime when reviewing 3D models, BOXX recommends the APEXX S3. The overclocked, six-core, 4.8GHz model is configurable with the latest generation Intel Core i7 processor and support for up to three professional GPUs.

The APEXX S-class hosts our most popular configurations for CAD design and 3D modeling applications. With support for three professional GPUs and the world's fastest processors, APEXX S3 is the ideal platform to accelerate your creative workflow.

Delivering rock-solid performance for a variety of content creation tools, APEXX T3 features an AMD 16-core Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processor. The APEXX T3 family is a versatile platform for demanding 3D content creation workflows. In addition to the blazing fast CPU, the T3 offers ample memory, up to three professional GPUs, and plenty of hard drives.

Whether you’re editing feature films or deploying cutting edge VR experiences, the APEXX X3, with support for up to two* graphics cards and 128GB of memory, is an ideal platform for extreme multi-tasking in your complex production pipeline.

Suggested Systems

Navisworks is used for other project-specific tasks, including rendering. AEC professionals can render high-quality, photorealistic images based off 3D models and integrated project data. Navisworks also enables real-time navigation, like zooming and orbiting. A key distinction for AEC users is that rendering is a multi-threaded process, meaning it benefits from more available CPU cores. However, before deciding on a Navisworks workstation, consider how much you use the software for rendering purposes, as an overclocked computer may still be your best bet.

The APEXX W5 is our most advanced workstation platform ideal for rendering, simulation Deep Learning and other professional GPU accelerated compute applications. The system is optimized for GPU centric workflows. 

Whether you’re editing feature films or deploying cutting edge VR experiences, the APEXX X3, with support for up to two* graphics cards and 128GB of memory, is an ideal platform for extreme multi-tasking in your complex production pipeline.

When it comes to technology, the future has a habit of seeming like the present. For example, reality computing is one of those steps already taken, and from its 2015 release, Navisworks has been seen as a solution well-suited to handle point cloud data.

The greater the size of your point cloud data, the higher the number of CPUs needed for your Navisworks computer to maintain productivity. This multi-threaded process, however, may not be your primary Navisworks function, and a workstation (like the APEXX X3) again could prove to be the best option.
