System Requirements

Hi there. I’m new to Simscale and I’ve been experiencing some “chunkiness” when spinning the model, usually after meshing. Is that a graphics card issue? Are there any recommended system requirements?

I running on a Macbook Pro (13 inch, mid 2012) with 2.5GHz Intel Core i5, 4GB memory, and Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024 MB.

Any tips? Thanks!

Hi @jonahdunham,

First of all welcome :slight_smile: and thanks for posting

Your system setup seems fine - this “chunkiness” can occur for large meshes since all of the small elements and edges must be rendered (see this post).

One thing that we recommend to speed things up is to switch from surfaces with wireframe to surfaces

Does this answer your question? Let me know if there is anything else you need and I’m happy to help

Thanks Anna, that answers my questions. Thanks so much :slight_smile:
