SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

The system requirements below are suggestions. 3D software is naturally graphics intensive, the better the hardware your budget allows, the better the program will run.

MICROSOFT WINDOWS

In order to run the program, your system should meet the following requirements:

  • Windows 10 / 8 / 7
  • 64 bit operating system
  • 2.0 GHz or faster processor
  • 8 GB RAM (4 GB minimum)
  • 10 GB available hard disk space minimum
  • 2 GB dedicated video card (1 GB minimum)**
  • Internet connection for online features
  • Internet browser to view online help***

Note: Your user account should be set to Computer Administrator (not Limited) to install the program.

*System Configuration: May require minor adjustments to the configuration of your operating system and /or updates to the hardware component drivers.

**Additional system and video memory will improve speed and 3D RealView™ rendering capabilities.

***User is responsible for all Internet access fees and phone charges.

  • 8 GB RAM (4 GB minimum)
  • 10 GB available hard disk space minimum
  • Internet browser such as Internet Explorer to view the online help
  • Internet connection for online features***

Virtual Machine Option

  • Requires VMware Fusion or Parallels (separate purchase of either required)
  • Fusion or Parallels minimum system requirements
  • Minimum requirements for the virtual machine (i.e. Windows) will be exactly the same as the Boot Camp Option requirements above.
  • Note: of the Virtual Machine options. Fusion is recommended by Cadsoft as it provides better rendering performance. However, both options will experience a performance decrease compared to Boot Camp.
