SSD vs HDD – A Hard Drive Comparative Analysis

Maximizing CAD Performance and Stability At SolidBox, every decision we make regarding our hardware is done in the interest of maximizing CAD performance and stability. One example of such a decision is the SSD vs HDD debate. For the purposes of maximizing CAD performance and stability, we have chosen through a hard drive comparative analysis 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

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. This is the case for both SOLIDWORKS Simulation and Fusion 360. The one drawback is that as your mesh gets finer, your hardware requires more resources. This is in order to calculate all the stress and strain in every single tetrahedral in your geometry’s mesh. This is why

My Gaming Computer Will Run SolidWorks, Won’t It? – SolidBox Spotlight

Here at SolidBox, we encounter SOLIDWORKS and Mastercam users from a vast amount of industries. Consequently, there seems to be one common question that we get from CAD/CAM folk across that wide array of industries. That SOLIDWORKS workstation question is some variation of this: I just built an expensive gaming computer, can I use it to run SOLIDWORKS/Mastercam as well?” The honest-to-God truth is yes. In fact, most gaming computers would accept an installation of SOLIDWORKS. And yes, yo
