  6. Benchmark

    (i get 13 seconds using .001 tolerance, 2017) Ron, you are not supposed to tweak anything. Otherwise the benchmark results are useless. we can all tweak the paths to process faster, but that is the opposite of the intent here.
  7. Benchmark

    the other two were don in 20 seconds the raster droned on and on.... i am seeing significant speed improvements in other areas in 2017 with the new tower. some things like dragging and dropping geometry on 600 mg files definitely are twice as fast. updating toolpath references also Also seems odd that my new p.c. with win 10 takes 3 times as long to open 2017 and 2018
  8. Benchmark

    Attached is the file to be used in this thread.
  9. Benchmark

    Well, here is something to ponder. my old P.C, (5 years older) using MCX7 processed faster than my new P.C. using MC2017 and 2018, disheartening but im ok with it. OLD 43.31 seconds - MCX7 i7 3930k CPU @ 3.2 GHZ 16 gig ram 64 bit win 7 pro ________________________________________ NEW 1 min, 5 seconds - MC2017 1 min, 4 seconds - MC2018 i7-8700k CPU @ 3.7 GHZ 64 gig ram 64 bit win 10 pro Well at least my other softwares will run faster on my new P.C..... LOL
  10. I need a faster box!

    New P.C. as of yesterday win 10 i78700k CPU @ 3.70 GHz 64 GB ram 2 min 58 secs
