I have a dell Latitude eE6220 with an intel core i5 8gb ram and i was wondering if I could connect an external graphics card like a Nvidia 1060 for Solidworks.

idk but eGPUs can only be connected thru thunderbolt ports MAKE SURE IT IS RUNNING AT THUNDERBOLT SPEEDS. this is important as thunderbolt speeds at 40gbit/s while thunderbolt ports can also run at usb 3.1 gen 1 or 2 speeds which are 5gbit/s and 10gbit/s respectively.

Note: performance per dollar is horrible on eGPUs i would not recommend as they lag behind because eGPUs use 4 pcie lanes rather than 16 the performance drop is not 1/4 it is more like 1/2 however i would not recommend a 1060 if you intend to play games on ultra at 60fps realisticly it is almost cheaper to just sell the old laptop and get a new one.
