Some useful links l found while exploring Deep/machine learning, AI etc:

- Blender 2.79b
- Time: 58 mins 58:34:08
using the latest [as of today] Blender: 2.8 beta, the CPU rendering engine time is greatly improved to: 34 minutes ! – an improvement of 24 mins !

I get the below error message snippet a lot while trying to compile Nvidia Cuda 10 samples for testing Cuda GPU development [ c++ code]:
The Windows SDK version 10.0.15063.0 was not found. Install the required version of Windows SDK or change the SDK version in the project property pages or by right-clicking the solution and selecting “Retarget solution”.
145>Done building project “topologyQuery_vs2017.vcxproj” — FAILED.
Solution l have found is to double check the Visual Studio 2017 installer and check installing below. It seems even though l have a full VS 2017 installation with all the default sections installed, a more recent SDK is installed on my workstation.
After doing above, l was able to successfully compile most of the Cuda Code samples as shown below, without the previous error. Yes!!
I use this a lot for teaching STEM education to younger future programmers to be. The creators of mincraft had a goal of teaching and enabling, exploring programming especially to kids, as well as having fun playing Minecraft.

General Notes on the Dell Alienware 17 R5:
Base unit came with GTX1060 6gb, M.2 Sandisk 2280 128Gb, 1Tb 2.5″ Hard drive…
Quick comparison to an older unit, no dual HDD option, no DVD/Burner drive, less USB drive slots, no SD card slot, but lots of newer VR friendly options, faster CPU and faster/more current GPU
M.2 upgrade device that worked for me – in Slot 2:
WD Black M.2 2280 500Gb PCIe nvme [$129]
Note – Sandisk V-Nand will NOT work for Slot 2
Slot 3 is M.2 2240

This is still baking, so far 60Gb bake files and climbing at 334 out of 501 frames. Domain resolution used – 500 – ie High Quality.
Bake files grew from 55Mb [frame 1] to currently 277Mb [frame 333] !
Will update on the progress and final render.
and finally… after almost 2 days baking non stop…..
Below shows me trying to render one single frame and yet getting out of CUDA memory error.
I’m using a GTX1080 with 8Gb VRAM, on a i7 Quad core PC with 32Gb RAM
Switching to a CPU render and the results are below.
Time taken 1 hour for frame 348
Until l can find a quicker way to render each frame, by cuda which is usually faster especially since l have access to about 3000+ cuda cores collectively on my core workstation, l will give this project a rest for now.
I tried command line blender rendering of frames 16, 348 with my 8gb gtx1080 / l get the cuda error as the gpu ram used reached about 7gb out of the 8gb,
Currently rendering the first 200 frames as shown below.
