This year at SOLIDWORKS World 2017 (SWW17), AMD had the opportunity to showcase its advancements in the professional space. In booth 501, AMD bolstered its Radeon Pro technology and collaborative relationships with EpiGrid and CAVRNUS. EpiGrid delivers SOLIDWORKS from the cloud, and AMD demoed their technology on systems powered by AMD FirePro™ S7150 x2, offering security and flexibility to designers. CAVRNUS allows people to experience SOLIDWORKS in a virtual reality environment (VR), which was demonstrated with the Radeon Pro WX 7100 workstation graphics card.
Dell joined the AMD booth this year with their Precision series and their new 7720 mobile workstation featuring Radeon™ Pro WX 7100 graphics. This is the first mobile solution to showcase the new Radeon Pro WX graphics card series for mobile workstations.
EpiGrid and SOLIDWORKS in the cloud – 579 miles away!
EpiGrid announced its cloud-based SOLIDWORKS offering earlier this year, delivering workstation-class graphics to virtually anywhere. This year, EpiGrid and AMD showed off SOLIDWORKS effortlessly running from 579 miles away to showcase the cloud technology in action at SWW17. The AMD FirePro S7150 x2 was running from a server in Atlanta in this demo. AMD’s multi-user GPU (MxGPU) technology allows designers and engineers to optimize their SOLIDWORKS workflows simply and from virtually any device. This private-cloud solution provides the performance and security you need with predictable costs.
CAVRNUS and SOLIDWORKS in VR
In collaboration with AMD, CAVRNUS ran a VR demo in the Radeon Pro booth with XConnect™ technology. CAVRNUS offers a revolutionary VR solution for collaborative design, interaction and education, which was powered by Radeon Pro WX 7100 graphics at the show. With lifelike environments, intuitive controls, on-the-fly CAD import, CAVRNUS is the most user-friendly and engaging collaborative VR solution for design and engineering professionals, whether they’re down the hall or across oceans. The VR solution is designed for creators and engineering professionals and SWW17 attendees had the opportunity to transverse into virtual lifelike CAD environments.
Those who had the opportunity to try the VR demo were deeply immersed in the design space. Being able to get close with objects and really inspect them offers new ways to design and adjust models. The CAVRNUS demo opens the door to new possibilities in the design space.
