    In need of advice for a budget workstation

    German Benavides

      Hi all,

       

      I am currently trying to set up a project for in august for my fellow students.
      The idea in a nutshell:

       

      "...building a decent workstation/PC that my students can use to quickly (emphasized) render their parts and assemblies for their projects on high level."

       

      This takes a huge load of their shoulders, they have deadlines, and work hard to visualize their projects. But they work on macbooks (I am sorry), and midrange laptops.

       

      Almost every 3 months they all have to make a few renders for their courses, so the workstation will be well-used.

       

      Now what I want to build: A budget +- 1000€ workstation, that can quickly (within 1 hours) render a not-so complicated assembly (50/100 parts max) or multibodyparts on high quality, that they can 1:1 print on A3/A2 paper. (image size between A2 7016x9922 and A3 3508x4961). I want to use PV360 or Keyshot 2.3 for this. Is this out of the question for my budget? If not, what workstation/renderstation will handle this just fine?

       

      Sincerest thanks! (thanks Anna for the redirect)
