    Hi

    What are my options for a good affordable rendering program to render my CAD files on the mac - I'm running a MBP 2.8.

    cheers all,

    J :)

    Thanks for the link - I created the files in Vectorworks - they are quite complex and take DAYS to render - I was hoping for something a lot faster.

    Bollocks, I gave you the wrong link. Here is the one for CAD: http://www.pure-mac.com/cad.html#vectorworks

    As Vectorworks is running on Mac OS X, have you seen it not using all available cores during rendering? Because if it does, you will not see faster render times with other applications, unless the other render engines are much more efficient.
