Our in-house designer is working with SketchUp Pro 2018 with VRay. He is doing 3D modeling and had been having issues with lag. We did extensive research to make sure we got a eGPU that was compatible and supported by Apple (they only support AMD as of this post), same with the dock. His Macbook has no problem recognizing and using the eGPU on other programs, however, we can’t get SketchUp to recognize the eGPU, so we cannot get it to tap into the GPU for processing. Since it’s a Mac, we can’t upgrade his CPU or RAM.
Any suggestions on troubleshooting, or if we need to go another route, would be great. All his specs are below, but I can give more information as necessary.
His system set up is:
MacBook Pro 15" (Mid-Late 2017)
High Sierra OS 10.13.6
16 GB RAM
i7 Intel Core Processor
AMD Radeon Pro 560 (Internal GPU)
Intel HD Graphics (Internal GPU)
AMD Radeon Pro WX9100 (eGPU)
Sonnet eGFX Breakout Box (650W)
