Hi all,

I'm new on this forum and new on lumion.
Im now working whit the 7 day trail version of lumion 5,
and i'm in love its just great!!!
But i can not run it on fully power, so i'm considering to buy a new pc and lumion.
So i just need some help :s but i really don't know anything from pc's.
So is there anywhere on the internet a pc that you can order whit the right spec's for lumion.
I'm going to use lumion for just 1 house models ore street models no very big scene ore models.

Sam

Hi Sam, unfortunately it's difficult for us to recommend PCs from specific manufacturers since we are not able to test if Lumion works well on those PCs.

We recently updated the hardware requirements but the changes still need to be added to the product page, so please click here to see the latest requirements.
IMPORTANT: Please do not send private messages and emails to members of staff - unless we specifically ask you to send us sensitive information, for example License Keys.

safir, i have been ordering ORIGIN Pc's, which some people say are a bit overpriced compared to soec'ing and buiding your own, but i have had great experiences with them. Check the specs page for updated specs.

You can get less expensive, but dont skimp on the Graphics card.


Here is what i got about 6 months ago. there are better components right now im sure. research difference between the new GeForce GTX 980 graphics card and the TITAN BLACK.

Hi robert and morten.
Thanks for the answers, robert this is a bit out of my budget i think.
I work as a carpenter and felled in love whit rendering and im doing it now about a 2 year and i'm getting positive comments about it from architects and clients. But i want to start now a new company in my spare time that does nothing else then rendering an making animations. So its a bit off a gamble to see if there is work in it.
And its an expensive guess so i'm in search off a pc that can handle lumion and get the best out off it.
Render times don't really matter for me.
So ill keep on searching and make a decision.
