Photogrammetry / PC configuration (tips)

Recommended Posts

Hi ultimaker fellows!

I`m starting into photogrammetry and I don`t know which PC configuration choose. I`m more than a month trying to find some reference about it without to much success. I will use to create 3d printed miniatures, 20 to 100 microns, ex: cars, people, yachts, animals, babies, etc. and maybe for VR and industrial solutions in a near future (update system in 2-3 years). I suppose to start to work with a maximum of 2000 photos with 15M each per project.

My main doubt is relative to processor. based on the cost-benefit, what configuration will give me a balance between performance and longevity?

 

(1) Wich processor should I chose?

i7 5820K LGA 2011 v3 (SIX-CORE) 12 threads / CACHE 15MB / 22nm;

i7 6600k (skyline)LGA 1151 (QUAD) 8 threads / CACHE 8MB / 14nm;

i7 4790k LGA 1150 (QUAD) 8 threads / CACHE 8MB / 22nm;

i5 6600K (skyline) LGA 1151 (QUAD) 4 threads / CACHE 6MB / 14nm;

PS* Other PC components: SSD 250GB + DDR4 2400 16Gb RAM (upgrade next 2-3 years) + HD 2T + GTX 970 4GB 256bit (maybe upgrade SLI next 2-3years)

(2) Should I invest less in Video Cards (sted down to GTX 960) and focus at Intel six-core processors and/or SSD?

(3) What should I consider about performance increase?

(4) Cinebench is a good benchmark source to use as a performance parameter for photogrammetry?

Any help or tip will be welcome...

Cheers,

fergazz

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
