PC specs for post-processing large objects

Our team is sometimes asked to advise specifications for PC that will process really large objects (turbines, helicopters, planes, parts of buildings, several-meter statues, etc).

We ourselves use two PCs, one with i9-7900X 3.30GHz and 128 Gb RAM, another one with i7-930 2.80GHz and 48 Gb RAM (depends on what object exactly we are processing).

Here is the sample specification, that our clients successfully used for post-processing of about 60 Gb of raw scanned data (yes, the captured object was extremely large!).

  • Hard drive: SSD
  • Processor: Dual Quad Core Intel Xeon (it was used on customized Dell workstation and despite Xeon processors are not recommended, this one worked great. Powerful Intel i7 is suitable as well).
  • RAM: 64 Gb RAM
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 (4 GB of dedicated memory)

Please note that the specs listed above are recommended for fast post-processing of extremely large scanned objects. For example, like the one in this story.


In all other cases please feel free to choose the configuration using our minimal hardware requirements.
