We are upgrading our Software to Solidworks Premium 2012 w/ Simulation Professional. Our product assemblies will be no more than a few hundred parts, and we will be running most of the simulations that Sim Pro is capable of. These are:
|Compare and Optimize Design|
|Simulate Natural Frequencies|
|Predict Buckling or Collapse|
|Simulate Heating or Cooling|
|Simulate Drop Test|
I am pricing out a computer system to run this efficiently, and I believe I am going to build the system to save money.
Is it recommended to go with a Xeon processor with ECC memory? Or will this configuration do the job?
With Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
Including the case, monitor, and other hardware, I have this priced at $3000.
I would like to stay around this price point if possible.
Any input is greatly appreciated!
