 Best Laptop For Solidworks , Maltab , Catia , Ansys , 3D design , animation and Simulation in 2021







So in this Blog you will some Best Laptop for your 3D design and simulation .Before we start talking about laptop let's what are the different parameter you need to see while buying laptop.







1. RAM : It is one of the  most the important thing you need to consider . In todays world minimum ram of your laptop need to be 8gb (16gb i recommend) . So what does ram do ? . when you design parts or object in you 3D software it all store in your ram while designing while making small project ram is not issue but when you start making bigger project it consumes a lot of ram if your pc does not have enough ram for the project you will your software will start crashing. Situation will become more dire when you start doing simulation

Common mistake : make sure you buy latest generation ram with high frequency (better data transfer means high speed in work) .If you can't afford a high ram laptop just buy a low variant ram laptop and increase it ram (this is cheaper method that i have done no issue faced so far)


2. Processor : Processor is the brain of your laptop i recommend try to buy ryzen 5000 (don't buy lower series of ryzen you might regret) series laptop as they are strong and give better performance than intel with great margin. If you have money constrained go for intel processors



Common mistake : before buying any laptop check the processor comparison. Also make sure your laptop have good ventilation else you will face heating issue(reduce laptop life)

3.Graphic Card : I recommend buy nvidia 3000 series graphic card  . Just for your knowledge nvidia 3000 series lower variant graphic are much better and cheaper than nvidia 2000 series top variant graphic card . These graphics cards come into play when you do rendering or simulation .Just in case in cad industry quadro graphics cards are used but they are very expensive so i am not going to add here in the list

Common Mistake: Just you know for college work nvidia 1000 series grpahic cards processor is also good they can do all you college work easily.nvidia 3000 series graphic card are cheaper but difficult to get . Highly recommend to buy them . Don't buy 2000 series as they are expensive and less powerfull than 3000 series graphics card




4. SSD/NvMe : Make sure your laptop has ssd of minimum 250gb(college student) / 1tb (industrial use) .So why ssd why not hardisk  ?. SSD is way more faster than hardisk for comparison look at the graph. you will see the difference when you try to install or doing simulation in laptop


Common mistake : While buying ssd make sure you check its speed . Same goes for hardisk


5. Screen Resolution : Screen Resolution must be 1920 X 1080 don't buy a laptop lower than this resolution . Having this kind of resolution give better clarity what is going on and give better picture quality


Types of Laptop YOU SHOULD NEVER BUY :

  • Thin laptop (thin laptop has low air cooling capacity and you will face heating and dust issue later onwards)
  • Old generation laptop suppose you are getting i7 5th gen processor so no its not worth it always try to buy latest as they are designed to consume less energy and give better battery performance
  • Low resolution laptop (poor quality of detailing whille work)
  • Low ram laptop (just in if you can't afford a high ram laptop buy a low ram laptop but with good processor and graphic card variant  and increase its ram afterwards it is a cheap method without damaging your warranty)


Recommend Laptops :  I will update the list when more laptop come (if you have any laptop in your mind comment it i will give you feedback)

 (Price fluctuate so i am writing them but still if you have any other laptop recommendation comment and i will add in the blog)

    1. How is acer nitro 5 with ryzen 5 4600h processor with 1TB HDD 256GB SSD WITH 4GB GTX1650 Graphic card

      ReplyDelete

      1. it is a good laptop it can handle all you college work (if you are going to do heavy simulation just increase your ram)

        Delete
      2. Is there any other laptop better that that in around same budget

        Delete
      3. Is it ok 60hz refresh rate for simulations
        And for cAD and other softwares

        Delete
      4. 60 hz refresh rate is not the requirement here all you need a strong processor watch this video for better understanding and comparison : https://youtu.be/7ko-Q2Y_3a8

    2. Hello there.
      I'm planning to buy Acer Aspire 7 Gaming Laptop AMD Ryzen 5-5500U variant with specifications : 16GB/512 GB SSD/Nvidia GTX 1650 4 GB of dedicated GDDR6 VRAM / Windows 10 Home/60hz for CFD flow simulations (Ansys fluent). Is it worth buying for Rs.58000 and will i have any problems in future with it? Other option i have is Acer aspire 7 i5 10 gen. Do you have any other better options? My budget is Rs.62000.

      Thank you

    3. Is it better to buy Lenovo ideapad 3 with 16gb

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. if possible buy a low variant ram but good quality processor Note you can increase your ram in future at cheaper price but not processor again its upto you

        Delete
    4. Does Ansys Fluent works or not work at all on 11th gen i5 16gb ram with integrated iris xe( on board) graphics ? Or dedicated / discrete gpu will be needed ? Have you run Ansys fluent ( recent version) on laptop with integrated graphics...Plz suggest

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Ansys fluent can run on integrated graphic card but i recommend to buy dedicated graphic they will reduce your calculation time. Festive season is coming 25 july onwards buy at that time

    if you are not getting it then ask i am glad to help
