Certified Workstations for Autodesk Inventor
The major advantage of using Autodesk Inventor is working with large assembly files. Well, that’s excellent, having read this any user must go ahead and purchase Autodesk Inventor, but the fact that he or she should not forget to look forward at the system specification that is essential for working with large assembly.
All fine, so what should I look at when I go ahead and purchase my Desktop / Laptop or Workstation ?
- CPU Processor ( Say Corei7)
- Number of Cores
- Graphics Card
- Operating System
- Physical Memory
- Rating for all the above ( If these companies or their new products are certified by Autodesk and specific for Autodesk Inventor 2009, 2010, 2011)
- Also don’t forget to look for users feed back in the forums, discussion board of Autodesk etc.,
So, I tried to look at my system configuration to see if I was using a certified graphics card and recommended hardware to run my AIP. When I migrated to Autodesk Inventor 2011, it was very much essential to see I matched all the system requirements to run my software.
First look at my workstation configuration
- Intel Core i7 CPU Q 720@ 1.60GHz
- 6MB L2 Cache
- 6144MB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
- NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M
- 1TB HDD
- Win 7 Pro 64-bit
I now looked at the website ” http://www.inventor-certified.com ” to see if I had a certified hardware to support my work. Yes, indeed all are certified including the Graphics Card. But what about YOU ?
The following are system test results for Autodesk Inventor® running on various Workstations.
Testing done with the “System Verification” test This test has three main parts:
The data used represents a general cross-section of Autodesk Inventor® applications.
