First off, I hope I’m posting in the right area.
Long story short. I’m in the landscape biz and somehow found this page last year. Played around and accidentally made something cool people liked.
Fast forward a couple months ago. I was doing everything on a 2018 macbook air. I was using twinmotion and vray with SU. I needed more power. One nigh with a very large bottle of vodka and card I ordered a macbook pro 16" I9, 32G, 2T, a 2018 mac mini i5, 8G (ordered 32G upgrade kit) 512G, egpu sonnet 560, and a bunch of misc. stuff. And let’s say I spent as much as a small used car on plant models with extensions I didn’t know that work with SU or macOS.
I have no clue why I bought the mac mini other to think it was in my cart and I hit buy now but I bought the memory on Amazon. So who knows. True story!
Now I’m trying to figure this out because there wasn’t a $XXXX improvement from my Mac Air.
I realize everything runs on a single core. At least I do now, and I’m still confused on the gpu except I should have got a windows setup for this. But any tips for a newbie using mac?
I get an error when I boot in safe mode and open SU. It says hardware acceleration not supported update my drivers. Is that because I’m in Safe mode? Should I use my egpu with my macbook pro that has better hardware? Anyone setup a mac mini for a server or file share for a model library and or a node for vray? Anyone want to go to a AA meeting? haha
Goal is to make some renderings of jobs. Sell the job. Then build it. Design and build is what I do…Phoenix, AZ
If anyone can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
