Rhinoceros 7 SubD: Makes "Water Tight" Modeling Easier with Plenty of Future Potentials for Designers
Rhinoceros 7 brings many new features, as the answers to many loyal users and professionals around the world who requested lists of features. There are tons of enhancements in modeling, drafting up to presentation improvements, as well as changing its support to Windows 8 and above. Sorry Windows 7 users, Rhinoceros 7 can not be installed to your machine with your preferred OS. I think it's time for Win 7 users to upgrade to Win 10, along with Rhinoceros 7. However, with the OS upgrade requirement, Rhino 7 gives offerings that many couldn't resist.
A grid computing GPU alongside a notebook/mobile workstation? That would be a dream if I could connect it to my HP Zbook Studio with good old Intel Core i7-6820HQ and Quadro M1000M. Really? A 6th-gen Intel processor, not the 11th-gen which is coming out soon? Yes, it's a good 4 years old HP Zbook Studio that handles my daily engineering (3d modeling, CFD simulation), visualization (rendering and animation) as well as visual effects (non-linear editing and compositing) tasks. The Zbook Studio flies when processing common 4K/UHD content in Davinci Resolve 16.
Covid-19 disease has spread to hundreds of countries around the world, delivering thousands of death tolls among its victims, leaving hundreds of thousands patients to fight for their lives. Healthy people are also forces to do physical distancing in order to cut down and initiate blocking force for the disease to stop. The situation also forces students to continue learning from home and workers to work from home as well.
One good thing is, it let us spend our time at home with our beloved family members. In order to be thankful we should be grateful to Allah Azza wa Jalla, as there is still wisdom in this very difficult situation. For everyone.
Lockdown. World's citizens are now experiencing a small bit of situation that most Palestinians face ever since the Zionist Israeli has been occupying the whole Palestine since 1967. However, other than Palistinians, we all could be still being considered as very lucky. We could do many things during Lockdown period in our house, play with our kids, do work from home, and even continue to enjoy life.
This article is written to express some deep respects to all Palestinians with their efforts and spirits to fight against the Zionist Israeli. May Allah Azza wa Jalla protect our Palestinian Brothers, Sisters and famlilies, keep them safe and make them get their freedom and land back in the near future. Ameen.
Deep condolences to all families in the world who have lost their loved ones during this Covid-19 pandemic. Endless respect as well to all the doctors, nurses and all people who have been giving their best to stop this pandemic. May Allah Azza wa Jalla extend us the strength to stand together fighting this horrible situation. Ameen.
The World Health Organization has declared Covid-19 as global pandemic. It leads to foreseeable impact when all world's citizens don't comply to all possible measures in order to counteract the uncontrollable spread of the SARS-Cov-2 virus.
One of the cost and most effective action to avoid the uncontrollable spread of the SARS-Cov-2 virus is to stay at home. This would limit the interaction between individuals, which would also helping to cut the virus' transmission chain.

HP ZCentral In-Depth: The Next Level and Computing Style of High Performance Computing On Top of Your Existing and Future Investment
On November 18, 2019, HP introduced HP ZCentral solution that consists of HP ZCentral Remote Boost and ZCentral Connect. For some, these two seem to be new products. However, it's actually an evolution of their existing Remote Graphics Software (RGS). I personally received some questions from my existing customers in relation with their existing investment on HP Workstations, as well as their future. I will try to cut all the long explanation I gave short, in this second article of HP ZCentral.
The world is now populated with many CAD software. Some are already well known in the industry, while some others are open source, and even free. There are also some different licensing models, applied to users when using different CAD software for their computers.
As a graduated engineer and hard core designer in RC plan/UAV hobbyist, I've been working and using different CAD software the last 2.5 decades. And from my point of view, Rhinoceros 6 is just the perfect answer to my needs and of course many others which are related to 3d modeling, outputting archive as layouts (2D drawing), manual construction of my own designs, up to 3d printing parts for my personal R&D as well as sharing the simplicity and easiness to other fellow engineers and designers.
So, what mostly are the parts that make Rhinoceros 6, easily winning the hearts of engineers/designers as well as business owners in Indonesia? The last few months, there are many companies and individuals have fully migrated into using Rhinoceros from other software. I'm really curious about this trending activity so I tried to address some of the key points. Check this article to find out.
On November 18, 2019, HP announced the HP ZCentral Remote Boost, the evolution continuity of the HP Remote Graphics Software. This, is another milestone of HP in order to deliver broadened solution for high performance computing users around the globe.
Upgrading the Graphics Performance of My HP Zbook Studio with AMD FirePro W7100 8GB Workstation Graphics
I didn't realize that it's been 3 years now since I first used my HP Zbook Studio. It's a powerful one piece of beatiful mobile workstation, crafted by HP. Even now, my HP Zbook Studio still gives impression of how premium the look and the hardware are.
With onboard 6th gen Intel Core i7 4 core processor, it still could keep up with the workload I have on daily basis such as designing complex RC planes and UAVs, up to Computational Fluid Dynamics using OpenFOAM and Paraview. it's simply stunning of how this beautiful piece of hardware could perform such tasks.
However, the demands continue to grow once I started to use Blender 2.8 on it. Eevee rendering engine demand more powerful graphics which the on-board Nvidia Quadro M1000M with 4GB graphics memory couldn't keep up well enough. It requires more graphics computing power and consumes more memory for real-time Eevee rendering engine inside Blender to perform as expected.
Just like any other people who work at their best, sometimes, we all need a break from what we daily do. Aside from gathering with my family, I do keep my mind away to a "neverland" that keeps on refreshing my technical skill and imagination. The HP Zbook Studio and Rhinoceros 6.0 give me the chance to keep on doing it.
The last 2 weeks, had been a horrible days in using some of my workstations. Specially ones that have Windows 10 on it. The problems raised after each of my workstations receiving Windows 10 updates. Some issues ranging from license activation of my good old Alias Sketchbook Pro, and some stability issues. But the most bugging problems was that I'm not able to print anything from my daily mobile workstations.
Okay, okay. The title may confuse numbers of people, when they only read the title without reading through the article. And in this article, I would be talking about the new HP Zbook 15v, that from my personal perspective may technically be the mobile workstation that most engineers and designers hate, if we bring it back to 2014.
Some numbers of test results were taken from various sources and references, and compiled them together in order to give bigger picture of the Zbook 15v, instead of just partial information.
I've been spending nearly 4 years now in RC plane hobby. I started to design my own parkjet back in early 2015. Started it with HP Zbook 14 and Rhinoceros. Things get even more exciting to me after I have my own Zbook Studio, as well as getting awesome support from global rc plane enthusiasts communities.
After designing some groundbreaking parkjets, I finally came up with a jaw dropping design (according to my colleagues abroad), the Sukhoi SU-30SM. And here's my story.
Through the years, software gets developed and enhanced along with their newer release. Some give changes in both features and price, some others are free. However, the free ones is no longer considered as tools to have fun. Blender for example. It is now considered one of the most powerful 3d modeling, animation, rendering and visual effects software on earth. It has evolved into something that can directly compete with other commercial software, offering many features, giving the answers and solution to many animators and graphics artists.
