    PC "Farm"

    Im not exactly sure this is the right section for this type of question, as I am new here, but here goes..

    I do a fair bit of computer modelling / animation / art on my PC.
    I have 2 "Spare" PCs at home next to the one I use for this type of work, and was looking into creating a render farm out of the other PC's.
    Any suggestions or methods on How i would go about doing this, or even just "joining" the PC's together would be much apperciated as I have no idea where to even start!

    Thanks alot in advance.

    im going to guess you will be looking for some sort of cluster in which a quick look at this might point you in the right direction from the hardware side. software side depends on what software you are using.

    Edit: i know Hex works with a cluster for a living and i think it was Rys on here who built on for a project a few years back
