I'm new to the forums and i've tried to find my way in the already existing topics, such as
I could not find an answer yet, hopefully some of you can help me out.
I am currently struggling with Chief Architect Premier, ray traces are really slow at 1080P (1 pass takes like 15-30 min)
Also working for in PBR is making my system really really slow and it is getting frustrating.
My model is not complex and I think I need an hardware upgrade.
Current machine (Notebook - April 2014)
X•BOOK 15CL56 NVIDIA GTX770m 3GB, Full HD (+/- 20000 3DMARK) Intel® CoreTM i7-4710MQ (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz) - 47Watt (Quadcore) 16GB DDR3L (1600MHz)
New system specifications (not bought yet)
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Boxed MSI X470 Gaming Plus Max Crucial Ballistix Sport LT BLS2K16G4D30AESB (32GB Ram) Intel 660p 1TB Solidstate drive Graphic card? Nvidia? Any Advice?
I think the 32 GB of memory is already an overkill, not sure if this is needed.
But I'm mostly wondering regarding the choice of CPU and Graphics card
Is this a good setup? What kind of performance improvements can I expect? What would be your advice?
I'm working on this project for a summer class.. I'm finished and was taking perspectives and a couple ray trace. I changed some of the settings in the ray chase for lights and such, and then I move to another part of the building and the ceiling is gone!! What did I do wrong? And how do I fix it?! Please help!!
I attached a snap of the outside of the building...no ceiling in the center (also I know my glass panels extend above the ceiling don't judge me)
HELLO, IM BULDING A NEW DESKTOP/ TOWER AND WOULD APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE ON WHICH SPECS WOULD BE BETTER FOR ME TO USE FOR CHEIF. RAY TRACE PRODUCTIVITY IS A ABSOLUTE MUST AND I DONT WANT TO SACRIFICE GRAPHICS CARD QUALITY EITHER, I WAS DEAD SET ON THE WORKSTATION UNTIL I READ ALL OF THE COMMENTS ON HERE ABOUT THE QUADPRO NOT WORKING WELL IN CA......? REALLY. MOVING ON, HERE ARE MY CHOICES:
#1. INTEL ZEON W-2155 3.3GHz, 4.5GHz TURBO, 10C, 13.75M CACHE, HT, (140W) DDR4-2666)
NVIDIA QUADPRO P4000, 8GB (5820T) 32GB (2X16GB) 2666MHz DDR4 RDIMM ECC WORKSTATION
M.2 512GB PCLe NVMe CLASS 50 SSD 2.5" 1TB 7200rpm SATA HARD DRIVE
#2. INTEL CORE I9 7900X (10-CORE, 13.75MB CACHE, UP TO 4.5GHz WITH INTEL TURBO BOOST MAX 3.0)
NVIDEA GeFORCE GTX 1080 WITH 8GB GDDR5X 32GB QUAD CHANNEL DDR4 AT 2666MHz ALIENWARE
512 GB M.2 PCLe SSD (BOOT) + 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/S (STORAGE)
I HAVE SURFACE BOOK WITH PURFORMANCE BASE INTEL I7 6600U 2.8 2.81 AND NVIDEA GeFORCE GTX 965M WITH 2GB DEDICATED AND I HAVE A FEW GOOD & THEN A WHOLE BUNCH OF NOT SO GOOD DAYS WITH RUNNING (2) ASUS 27 " 1080 DISPLAYS FOR THE PAST 3-4 MONTHS IVE JUST REVERTED BACK TO ONE SCREEN BECAUSE ITS NOT WORTH THE HASSLE OF THE SCREEN FREEZING AND THE I GET "C.A HAS STOPPED WORKING.....WINDOWS IS CHECKING FOR SOLUTION..... UGH...... AND I GUESS I DIDNT EXPECT THESE ISSUES WHEN I PAID $2799.99 FOR IT 11 MONTHS AGO. ....... AND SLIGHTLY HESITANT ABOUT THE NVIDEA GeFORCE SERIES BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF STABILITY THAT IM EXPERIENCING AND IN ADDITION, IT WOULD BE REALL REALLY NICE IF THE NVIDEA GEFORCE GTX CARDS HAD DRIVERS THAT WORKED WITH WINDOWS 10 DRIVE UPDATES BECAUSE IT SURE WOULD BE NICE TO USE MY DOOR LABEL AGAIN SOME TIME OR ATLEAST BE ABLE TO PLACE A LIBRARY OBJECT WITHOUT HAVING TO CLOSE C.A AFTER EACH OBJECT IS PLACED...... ALREADY CALLED TECH AS I HAVE SSA AND ROLLED BACK BUT THE SURFACE BOOKS JUST KEEP ROLLING BACK FORWARD....ITS BEEN GREAT... SO MOVING ON I HOPE ONE OF THESE TWO OPTIONS WILL DO GOOD AT BOTH RT AND RENDER BETTER AND HOPEFULLY BOTH MULTI THREAD WELL. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHICH SYSTEM YOU WOULD RECOMMEND AND IF YOU HAVE TIME LETME KNOW WHY.
I have a client who had a set of hand drawn plans converted into AutoCAD to submit for plan check/approval. They are missing certain components that need to be added, see "scope of work". Have a dropbox folder for review if anyone is interested in bidding. The completed set of CAD files will be given to an Idaho engineer for review and submission.
Attached are samples of the files.

I have an uncle who asked me to design a dream home for his new ranch. He has many children and wanted a large home. I was wondering if anyone could give some general feedback on the plan and offer any suggestions? If he likes it enough, he may give me a room in the house! I would appreciate any feedback. One issue I currently have is the automatic roof on the rear section of the third floor. It is covering the windows in those rooms. Any suggestions on that? I would like the third floor to look smaller then the other floors from the outside but still have the rooms that are up there. I have included a download link to the file due to it being too large to attach here.
Thank you for your support.
