  1. Hi. I also do not see much improvement with Studio, as mfeldt says. Maybe it will be necessary to work more the possibilities of Studio, but in speed with big models there is no improvement (or small improvement). With your advice (thanks for that!) I have reached two conclusions: 1- According to the software structure of the Lego programs (design, instructions, etc.), a powerful computer will get a small performance improvement. 2- The best solution will be to divide the large models In the design. Anyway, I will renew my computer to a more powerful one, this will always be positive, and some improvement will be achieved, even if it is small. I will open a new post asking what computers (or computer equipment), users of this forum use to work with Lego, I think it would be a very interesting post, and thus we will be able to share ideas about the best possible computer, and see what computers the users work. Greetings.
  2. Hi. Following the advice of JopieK, I have done some tests with Studio: I have loaded the Lego model, with 24,000 pieces (generated instructions with MLCAD and LPUB3d: 2,400 steps, every 10 pieces) Computer: Laptop, i3 processor - 8Gb of RAM - Integrated graphics card The model moves well, but if I select a large set of pieces (approx 10,000) it is very slow. In the instructions mode, I export the first 100 pages to PDF and use 10 minutes. I repeat the same with a much more powerful computer: PC, i5 processor - 16Gb of RAM - Dedicated graphics card of 4 Mb. Solid hard disk: All the same, it only improves in the export to PDF, which uses 8 minutes. I see a very small improvement, with the most powerful computer. I am then very confused, because if I buy a really powerful computer (i7, 32 GB of RAM, 8 GB graphics card, etc.), I think the difference in Sudio performance will be small. I assume then that with LDD there will be no great difference in performance with a powerful computer, but neither will there be a great difference with a powerful computer for Studio? I ask all this because if Studio is a program that is updated (and also Lpub), then, it is impossible to get fast with large models of Lego ?. No matter which computer is used when the model has more than 20,000 pieces? although it is very pootente? Please, what do you think about all this? I will be willing to change programs to design and generate instructions, but if with a very powerful computer I get great improvement ... Please help... Thank you.
  3. Thank you for your answers !!! It is a disappointment for me, to verify that after the experience of other users with powerful computers, the performance of LDD does not improve (or very little improvement). As Jopiek says, we'll have to get used to Studio ... but I do not like it ... (although it seems silly, in Studio there is no sound when placing a piece ... and this is not very intuitive) According to your (wise) advice, I believe then that I will discard the idea of buying a very powerful computer. Although I update my current computer, but I will not buy an i9, etc, etc. Anyway, I ask the same, for the other software that I use a lot, and that gives me many problems with large models (more than 20k pieces): LPUB3D, to make instructions. As this software is updated, it is likely to improve its performance with a powerful computer right? Greetings.
  4. Hi, thanks for the quick response. The truth is that I like LDD more. My idea is to continue with LDD, so, I need to know if with a powerful computer I will get a major improvement with the performance of LDD. So, if with the last update of LDD (4.11) the problem with the GTX graphic cards was fixed, as I have read in this forum, I will have problems with a powerful graphics card? (one of 6 GB for example) I would love to hear from someone who works with LDD, and have a powerful configuration on their computer, to explain their experiences with large models. Regards
  5. Hi. I am thinking about updating my computer to improve my designs with LDD, but since I read that the LDD software is old, it is not updated, etc., I do not know if I will really see an improvement in performance. I do not mind buying a very powerful computer, but I'm afraid to buy it and the LDD improvement is very small. My current computer: -Intel Core i-5 (2013) -Memory RAM: 16 gb -Solid hard disk of 125 GB -Disk hard disk 1 TB -Graphic card 2 GB Envy Powerful computer: (possible purchase) -Intel Core i-7 9700K 3.6 Ghz -Motherboard MSI z370-A Pro -Memory RAM: 32 gb (2x16) Corsair V. RGB pro DDR4 -Solid hard disk of 500 GB wd blue 3d Nand SSD SATA -Disk hard disk 1 TB -Graphics card 6 GB Gigabyte Aourus Geforce GTX 1060 GDDR5 The problem is for models with more than 20,000 pieces. Now I'm with a model of 24,000 pieces, and I need to select sets, to move them, etc, and when I do that, you have to wait at least 1 minute, and when you make the move, it almost always gives errors. Do you think that with a powerful computer I will see an important improvement with models of more than 20,000 pieces? I would not mind (if the performance of LDD improve a lot) even buy an i9, or instead of 32 GB of Memory Ram, buy 64 GB of Memory Ram, but here comes my second doubt: -What elements are the most important for the performance of LDD? Processor (CPU), RAM, Graphic Card?, Maybe?, In that order? What do you think?. I would be willing to invest in a large, powerful computer, but not if the difference in performance will be small. Greetings.
