*Configurations using Virtual environments, including parallels, are not supported

CPU

 - Intel® and AMD® processors with a minimum 2 GHz clock speed*

 - Recommended:  Multiple core processors.  Hyperthreading and clock speeds above 3 GHz can be beneficial but should be paired with a good balance of cores.

RAM

 - Minimum: 8 GB

 - Recommended: 16+ GB (Based on version of Windows used)

Hard Disk

 - 30 GB or more recommended

 - Temporary file cache requires about 3 GB free disk space for every 100 million points

 - Recommended: a SSD with more than 256GB of space or a 10000 RPM HDD 

 - Recommended for 3D Scanning products: using multiple hard drives and assigning one as a "cache" drive for temporary storage and paging files and assigning the other for the operating system  

Display

 - OpenGL 3.0 or above, 32 bit true color required

 - Minimum resolution: 1280 x 960

 - Recommended resolution:  1280 X 1024 or higher

GPU


Recommended: Dedicated (Non-Integrated) Graphics Card that meets the criteria below:

Video Card RAM: 512MB

Video Card Framework: Must support DirectX 9.0c or above and OpenGL 3.0 or above

Series: NVIDIA Quadro



Recommended: Dedicated (Non-Integrated) Graphics Card that meets the criteria below:

Video Card RAM: 2GB or More

Video Card Framework: Must support OpenGL 4.0 or above

Series: NVIDIA Quadro or NVIDIA GeForce

Notes:

If you use the AMD Radeon series, the panning or rotation in the application might not operate correctly. To solve this problem, uncheck the Use Custom Settings option under 3D > Standard Settings in the Catalyst Control Center dialog box and move the slider to the left.

It is recommended to set the anti-aliasing value lower than 8. Otherwise, detection of 3D edges may not work properly or there may be problems with panning or rotating within the application. If anti-aliasing is disabled, the edges and boundaries of shaded objects can be jagged if displayed at angles close to 0 or 90 degrees.



Recommended: Dedicated (Non-Integrated) Graphics Card that meets the criteria below:
