Build Your Own Super Computer
Build Your Own Super Computer If your machining job calls for more computing power than you can muster from a single machine, consider tapping into other workstations in your network. Some CAM programs, such as HSMWorks, are designed to work in such distributed environments. With this software, you can install a service in each machine that allows any workstation to draw more computing power from the idle core capacity of others in your pool. In effect, you get a super computer without paying for it. What's been your experience with distributed computing? <snip> http://www.deskeng.com/articles/aaaxyn.htm
