I have a Lenovo Yoga 730 (15"), and I am an engineering student. I want to use Inventor and CAD on my laptop, but I often feel like the integrated graphics can't keep up, so I want to buy an external graphics dock and use it with my laptop. In the description of the laptop specs, it says that it has a USB-C port with thunderbolt capabilities, but I don't think it is a thunderbolt itself. Can I use external graphics with this laptop through thunderbolt?

I have Yoga 730 13' and it has 2 ThunderBolt outputs.
Checked on the lonovo website and you have:
|Connections / slots|
So yes - you can plug in eGPU via ThunderBolt. But it is like ~300usd just for the case + the cost of GPU itself.
Check also Yoga dock as an alternative
It is just GTX 1050, but it may be also some solution it its power will be sufficient for you.
