Render speed tests

Discussion created by Kevin Quigley on Jun 25, 2008
Just for fun (I really need to get a life) I imported a file I'm working on which is a complex moulded part that clips together to make a "carpet" of the same components. I did a pattern array of 16x8. The polygon count on the PhotoView model was 12 million. Render time at HD resolution (1920 x 1080) was just under 14 minutes. No crashes.


As an aside this assembly also showed up the fact that in SW2009 the assembly performance and display is far far better than 2008. The bounding box display when rotating is much more intelligent.

It also showed that PhotoView used the saved configuration OK, and it recognised assembly level features like cuts. Which is something Hypershot doesn't do!
