How to Update Your NVIDIA Graphics Card Driver

We've been getting calls from customers reporting messages within SOLIDWORKS that state it's time to get an updated graphics card driver. All CAD programs lean pretty heavily on your GPU, so it's a good idea to always use the latest driver even if you haven't gotten a message. Here's the best way to make sure your SolidBox has the latest driver.

Customer Spotlight: Indmar

Working in the world of 3D-CAD is great because it’s used to design such a wide variety of products. At SolidBox, we have worked with people designing everything from electric heating elements to mountain bikes, pizza ovens, and even monster trucks. Repeat SolidBox customer Indmar designs some of the best marine engines available for high performance towboats (used for wakeboarding and waterskiing) and jetboats (used for going up and down whitewater rivers). They do this by taking an autom

SSD vs HDD

At SolidBox, every decision we make regarding our hardware is done in the interest of maximizing CAD performance and stability. It is for that reason that we have chosen to spec our systems with nothing but Solid State Drives (SSD). In fact, the primary drive on all of our systems is the fastest variety of SSD available: M.2. SSD's have many performance benefits over the traditional Mechanical Hard Drive (HDD) you may be more familiar with. Unlike a HDD, a SSD has no moving parts. This is where

SolidBox Partners With SIMSOLID Simulation Software

We here at SolidBox love the Simulation tools in SOLIDWORKS and Fusion 360. However, this is mostly out of necessity, as a mesh solver has always been the best way to accurately simulate your designs under stress or strain, as is the case for both SOLIDWORKS Simulation and Fusion 360. The one drawback is that the finer your mesh, the more resources are required of your hardware to calculate all the stress and strain in every single tetrahedral in your geometry’s mesh. This is why we would typ
