First off I am not well versed in computer hardware and capabilities. I needed to get a laptop because I recently bought a hobby CNC router and needed to design parts in Fusion 360. I originally bought a Dell but while it was shipping I ran across the Framework and from the discussion boards it seemed like for simple Fusion designs it should be fine, plus a really like what the company is trying to do and wanted to support it. However, I finally got everything setup and was doing a basic spoilboard design for the CNC bed and I keep running into problems with Fusion giving me errors. I am trying to run the pattern tool to create 4 copies a rectangular part with about 40 holes in it. I dont feel like this is an overly complicated part. Am I asking the laptop to do more than it can do? I have 2 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws RAM, Samsung 980 Pro 1TB SSD, Intel® Core™ i7-1165G7. Do I need to run a eGPU (looks expensive)? If so, what should I be looking at? I dont want to buy one that is more powerful than what can get pushed through the Thunderbolt connection but I also want one to do everything I need to do in Fusion.
I’ve used Inventor on my Framework with the same CPU but half the ram, and I’m sure I could do something like that. May be another issue, perhaps drivers?
Thanks for the response but I checked and it said it has the lastest driver.
Here is what I am trying to do
May be a limitation of the GPU memory, Im not sure if theres a way to increase the pool it gets from the system
