July 17, 2018

The Puget systems team has recently tested Artec Studio 12 post-processing on their customized workstations, so let's have a look at the results, that they've shared with us.

For a better understanding of what hardware components exactly affect the post-processing speed, feel free to browse through this article.

 

Hardware:

Two configurations have been tested, the main difference between them was a model of the installed videocard:

  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Gigabyte X299 Designare motherboard
  • Intel Core i9 7960X processor
  • 64GB RAM, 4 x 16GB 2666MHz modules
  • Samsung 960 Pro SSD
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB and GeForce GTX 1060 6GB video cards

Note: the NVIDIA driver version for both videocards, used in the test, was 391.35.

 

Software and its settings:

1. Artec Studio 12, version 12.1.1

2. A project of the compressor, captured with Artec Space Spider:

  • 12 scans
  • ~7 Gb of raw data in total

3. Algorithms parameters:

  • global registration in "geometry and texture" mode
  • sharp fusion with 0.3 resolution and "watertight" option
  • small-object filter in "Leave biggest object” mode
  • texture mapping with 8K texture size and in "For Export" mode

Results:

Since the video card influences the texture mapping algorithm greatly, so the difference in the video card models explains the difference in the calculation speed:

  The workstation with
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB
The workstation with
GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
Global registration 37 sec
Sharp fusion 355 sec
Small object filter 4 sec
Texture mapping 1450 sec 2722 sec

 

Overall, these Puget workstations showed really great performance, so if you're aiming to use one of such machines for post-processing of your Artec Studio projects, it'll be a great choice.

 

What's next?

We're aiming to conduct the next series of post-processing tests with a much larger project - a whole motorbike, captured with Space Spider and Eva, so stay tuned! :)
