Languages
  • English
  • German
CPU & RAM
  • For a fluent workflow 2 GB RAM and a 2 GHz Processor are recommended.
  • Generally, the bigger and more complex the 3D file, the more RAM is required.
  • For the Automatic Packing add-on at least 4 GB RAM is required (the better the graphics card and the more memory you have, the faster the program).
