OpenSCAD “Pistol” Rendering Benchmark
This benchmark combines the power of OpenSCAD (https://openscad.org/) with a custom rendering script created, and maintained by Michael Larabel (https://www.michaellarabel.com/). It is part of the “Phoronix Test Suite” (https://github.com/phoronix-test-suite). This fairly quick benchmark runs a custom script that times how long it takes to render the ‘Pistol” SCAD asset(s) to PNG output. All tests are run 5 times with the average result in seconds displayed.
SolidWorks Performance Test (CPU only)
SolidWorks is a solid modeling computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) application published by Dassault Systèmes. While not as well known as some other professional CAD programs it is a powerful CAD program that can bring even the most powerful of systems to their knees. To help ensure professionals actually have enough horsepower it comes with a simple, yet decent, benchmark. Consisting of many parts it tests the entire system. However, only the CPU portion of the results are recorded.
