In general, first, I would recommend to use appropriate approach: if possible use model symmetry, appropriate element type (1d, 2d, 3d) and mesh size or even use hand calculations instead of FEA, ... All this should correspond with output (precision) you require.

Is there a way to distribute those operations across computers?
I’m not aware of distributing a task between more computers (except that you can generate inp file on PC and run analysis on stronger computer/cloud), but CalculiX is able to use more CPU threads. Look at
Edit → Preferences → FEM → CalculiX → Solver defaults → Number of CPU's to use
When using GMSH, you can also use local mesh refinement where you are interested in higher precision by "FEM mesh region"
