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.
PunkTacoNYC posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHey Eurobricks, PunktacoNYC back again with another rock crawler! This time it's called the Rocket Crawler and it is my largest, fastest crawler yet. Youtube video: Features: - 4 L-Motors for drive (one per wheel) - Ackerman steering with custom virtual pivot system to maximize steering angle - Rigid, triangulated 4-link suspension with 100% Lego-legal original, extra large links - Very minimal, light bodywork, and a cute rocket atop the cab - BuWizz for extra power and SBrick for a great custom control scheme - RC4WD 2.2” Bully Competition Tires The initial inspiration for this crawler was twofold; I wanted to build a RC competition super-class-like crawler, what with giant relative wheel size, slim body, and high articulation. I also really wanted to make use of RC4WD's quite large Bully competition tires. This project has been in development for over a year thanks primarily to issues with the front axle. The problem with the front axle was that Lego universal joints simply could not handle the high torque required to spin such large tires. I tried using custom Lego universal joints custom dremeled brass remote-controlled boat u-joints, and even knob gears at the pivot point - nothing worked. So, I mounted the motors directly to the wheels, all within a virtual system to move the steering pivot closer to the center of the wheel for a better turning radius. There is approximately 90° of articulation between the front and rear axles: Easily adjustable suspension height: (high) (medium) (low) The chassis: Wheel comparison: Concept 1: Concept 2 (later): This has been my favorite project. Let me know what you think. P.s. I got a snupps page (nice idea, Sariel): https://www.snupps.com/punktaconyc
IceAxe posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi, I'm new to these forums, and new to Lego mindstorms. I'm finding the PC software to be *really* slow. It takes a second or two to respond to mouseclicks, and dragging bricks around on screen is a pain because it lags so much. I have a fairly powerful laptop with an intel core i7, 8GB, 64bit Windows 10, Nvdia Geforce graphics. Everything else flies on this PC Is the software just really slow, or is there some configuration I can do?
