Introducing the "RenderCube":
The RenderCube provides a cost-effective rendering solution targeted to the smaller animation studio in search of high-performance at lower cost. This small footprint "Render Farm-in-a-box" packs up to eight CPU's into a 16.7" cube!
The RenderCube was conceived to be a high performance, low-cost solution to meet our own rendering needs. In the end, we created a unique cube-shaped design that packed the power of eight separate, networked PCs; in effect a "Render Farm-in-a-box". We were so pleased with the result that we thought other 3d animators might be interested in it too.
