Hi all,

I started working at an engineering company last year and one of my tasks was to create 3d renderings using 3ds max. The Desktop they want me to use is a couple of years old. For the most part, it can handle what I throw at it. However, I have been rendering some animations and they have taken 5-7 days each. My boss wanted me to see if there is anything that could be done to improve the rendering times. I am thinking that it might be a hardware issue.

Since I do not have admin rights, I am not sure what all the hardware is, however, I do know that the processor is an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1650 v3 @ 3.50GHz. The memory (RAM) is listed at 24.0 GB and the storage space is listed as 39.7 GB free of 224 GB.

Can someone help me figure out if the computer hardware is not up to spec, or is there someone that could possibly be done in 3ds max to speed up the animations.

Thanks for all the help guys!
