APEXX 8R Boosting Solidworks Visualize

The BOXX APEXX 8R featuring 8X Nvidia Quadro P6000 GPUs will be on display at GTC in San Jose at the BOXX booth #423.

Which scenario would you want in a collaborative design review or have access to throughout the design process? Be sure to watch the video above in full screen HD.

The 2016 release of Solidworks included a new visualization tool called Visualize which enables designers to quickly and easily generate marketing quality renderings. In 2017, Solidworks Visualize added additional functionality with the announcement of PowerBoost. This feature allows the user to draw on the resources of a GPU accelerated network rendering server, or an Nvidia VCA, and stream the end result directly back to the end user’s viewport.

Specialization is For Insects

There are some things about BOXX I think you should know. I wouldn’t call them secrets, but in a way they are hidden. It’s not the kind of thing you get from a typical marketing email or blog post. I’m here to talk about the little stuff—the interesting details that come together to make every BOXX system what it is. And, as it happens, one of those little details is me.

I’m an assembler at BOXX Technologies. I’ve been building systems here since 2012, I’ve seen the models come and go, and I’ve built them all. Updated, tweaked, revised or refreshed, each time they get better and better. Not just the technology, mind you, but the systems themselves. Alongside the rapidly-advancing motherboards, processors, RAM, and video cards are chassis designed by BOXX engineers right here in Austin, Texas. In an industry that changes so rapidly, you must be able to adjust as quickly. If you can adjust even more quickly, even better.

But it isn’t just about keeping up with technology. It’s also about being the only hardware company offering specific solutions to specific problems—for example, the brand-new Pro VDI 8401R-V, which happens to be the world’s first overclocked system designed for VDI power users[1]. No longer will your VDI solution running CAD for multiple users feel graphically inadequate. Allow those ten cores running at up to 4.3 GHz to set you free. That’s the kind of thing I’d write if I were in marketing, anyway. Continue reading
