I’m keen to get a slim notebook computer with a stylus pen, but I also occassionally require a powerful PC to work on large/complex models and renders.
I’m curious if anybody has tried using SketchUp over a LAN using something like NVidia Gamestream? I doubt Sketchup is loaded into the Nvida Shield appstore, but could it be?
I’ve tried Skype (remote desktop) but it’s very laggy even on a wired LAN…
As of now, SketchUp does not support virtual environments. This is one of the reasons for my.sketchup!
I don’t know about that particular system, but I have tested a Nvidia Grid/Citrix - based virtual machine via LAN or through the Internet via VPN. Works with no problems.
The standard remote desktop included in Windows doesn’t support OpenGL. There might be other options.
I used Steam for streaming apps a few times. Works fine for streaming from my desktop (with 1080) to laptop (hd4000). Just install Steam on both machines, enable in-home streaming and add SketchUp to the app list.
Edit; never tried with SketchUp but works ok (not super - just ok) with Unreal Engine / OculusRift.
GRID is the old name for Gamstream so that’s cool, It’s worth me investigating
People say it’s no good for fast paced action games or fast typing, but Sketchup isn’t either of these.
Good to know RE: OpenGL
Great - thanks -will try this
I used to use Google Chrome remote desktop, can be laggy for constant work but fine for saving/editing/exporting /rendering etc.
This is expensive but I have had a go at a trade show and its bloody brilliant!!
