I would like to know what the current recommended monitor setup is in a highly professional Engineering environment.
We have been providing our Engineers with configurations like
Thanks in advance.
I have (2) 27" wide screens and would consider anything smaller. I have the two monitors at a ~120 degree angle to each other in a corner of my desk. Works really great.
A twin monitor system is indispensable. Spreadsheets, email, and web content on one side and Creo on the other.
I have played with something like the Oculus rift but the technology is not there yet. but soon....?
I have high def at work but not 4k yet. For the cost I do not think 4K is worth it for a floor with 50 users.
It is hard for an office to balance state of the art with cost.
Just got a Benq 3201PH 4K monitor to evaluate.
Office & other apps were looking great, super sharp details, the individual pixels are invisible.
But Creo 3 M110 was fuzzy, both the menus and the models, with the models showing jagged angled lines that did not seem to correspond to the high resolution.
I tried all of the Creo settings for quality & anti-aliasing but nothing fixed it.
Turned out to be caused by the window application scaling, the more I scaled it the more fuzzy it got.
Windows automatically chose a 150% scale for this monitor.
But - when I set the Windows application scaling to 100%, Creo was perfect - crystal clear menu text and no visible jagged model lines.
It's just the menus are a little small, but maybe something to get used to.
Researching 4K monitors, I have read that some programs were not properly coded to scale and that is the root cause behind the lack of clarity.
I believe this to be the case here.
Being curious, I opened Creo 4 Sneak Peek, and the menus were perfect even when scaled, so hopefully a fix is coming with Creo 4.
I currently use 2 24" IPS 16:10 screens. 16:10 for the extra height and IPS because TFT gives me headaches. When I get a bigger desk, I plan on adding another of the same monitor.
I have not run 4k yet. Currently, I see no reason to, at least not on smaller screens. Especially in CAD where you are zooming in and out anyway. I have also seen people get 4k screens and run them at 200%, I am not sure these people know how resolution works.
