RealityCapture is a program used for photogrammetry, which is able to create seamless 3D models out of unordered photographs or laser scans. This software is used in a variety of fields, from surveying to gaming, and for Virtual Reality in general. A well-constructed RealityCapture workstation requires a lot of power from all areas of the … Read more


Pix4D is a suite of photogrammetry software commonly used by geospatial professionals, such as surveyors and civil engineers. To elaborate, it uses images from drones to generate point clouds. Like any other professional program, Pix4D does not need the most powerful components in order to operate. However, a more powerful workstation for Pix4D will give you a much better experience. This means you could get more work done in less time.

Why choose us?

Parts like CPU cooler, Power Supply Unit, and chassis are often glossed over when putting together a system like this. Surprisingly, these parts have a massive effect on the lifespan and performance optimisation of the CPU, GPU and RAM. We only use parts that guarantee excellent cooling, airflow, and power delivery.

We’ve also got a lot of experience in putting these systems together, and our cable management is flawless. This not only means dust will be a lot less of an issue, but it will be much easier to work with when you eventually need an upgrade. This will only happen several years down the line, of course. Not to mention our cases just look fantastic.

Each Modena Computers Workstation is tailored to the personal needs of the user, but the features below would make for a great workstation for Pix4D.

CPU – Frequency

A Workstation for Pix4D will use the CPU differently for each step in its operation. The initial processing step benefits greatly from high CPU frequencies. In smaller projects, this step can take up quite a large portion of the total processing time, but less so in larger projects. This means that additional cores become more important as your projects become larger – this is quite convenient, as it costs more to get CPUs with more cores than with higher clock speeds.
