Has solid works been ran on a cluster computer setup? where
there any benefits from it and what was the performance like?
Any insight on this? Has anyone used Amazons cluster to run a rendered animation, does any third party offer software to manage said task?
Look at Modo 501 with their soon to be released SolidWorks Kit and Garagefarm.net.......
nearly everyone currently runs SW on a cluster of computers, it's called a multi core cpu
if there were a beat a dead horse smiley icon, I'd insert it here
Thanks Anna! I check into this right away. I did find this thread on a similar topic but it seemed unresolved as well...
Mr. Larson, please refrain from posting unless its constructive, If in fact you have experience in rendering large animation projects I look forward to your feedback.
Lets analyze the cost benefit briefly:
If indeed a solution exists or nearly exists, it seems quite attractive to be able to elastically expand you processing power as the project requires, then with little down side retract. Otherwise your forced to maintain idle capacity, something I'm currently trying to avoid.
There are numerous render farm sites on the web. Do some Google searches for render farms. Also spend some time reading posts on the Luxology forums to see who the users there use for render farms.
You have many choices there.
