The Revit Workstation – Hardware Recommendations

Having been asked this month 3 times for a recommendation for a Revit workstation, I am writing this highly opinionated guide today to help Revit users make wise choices. However, I have been thinking about writing this for years.

I have been building CAD workstations since the mid 1990’s. Every time I build a new computer, it requires a great deal of research because of the ever-changing technology. This time is no exception.

This system will be designed primarily for Revit but will work as well for 3DS Max Design, Autodesk Ultimate Building Suite, The Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection and V-Ray. It will be suitable for BIM and all of its tangents such as rendering, animation, clash detection and estimating.

OPERATING SYSTEM

It is also important to understand that the way a network administrator configures their dynamic host control protocol (DHCP) server has a huge bearing on the performance of the network. While some people pay too much attention to the cabling layout of the network, it is worth pointing out that the infrastructure must work in unison with the DHCP server to achieve optimum results when it comes to network connectivity.

What Are The Important Aspects To Look Out For When Managing DHCP Servers?

The DHCP server is responsible for leasing addresses to all devices that connect to the network. As a result, anything wrong on the setting up of this server could easily result in the entire network failing to work. Below are some vital points to look out for:

  1. The DHCP server starting and ending IP address pool

Importance of C Programming

‘C’ seems a strange name for a programming language. But this strange sounding language is one of the most popular computer language today because it is structured, high level, machine independent language. It allows software developers to develop programs without worrying about the hardware platforms where they will be implemented. The root of all modern language is ALGOL, introduced in the early 1960s. C was evolved from ALGOL, BCPL and B by Dennis Ritchie at the Bell Laboratories in 1972.

C uses many concepts from these languages and added the concepts of data types and other powerful features. Since it was developed along with UNIX operating system, it is strongly associated with UNIX. During 1970’s, C had evolved what is known as ‘traditional C’.
