SprutCAM project's independent PC features

  • OS – Windows XP (SP2), Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8;
  • Pointing device – Microsoft Mouse-compliant;
  • Disk space – about 1 GB;
  • Display resolution – 1024x768 or more, 65535 colors or better.


Minimal recommended PC configuration (small and medium SprutCAM project)

  • CPU – Intel® PentiumTM IV 2000(MHz);
  • RAM – 1 GB;
  • VideoCard – OpenGL-capable card (OpenGL 1.2) 128 MB;
  • HDD – free space about 1 GB for projects and temporary files.


Recommended PC configuration (large SprutCAM project)

  • CPU – Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo or better;
  • RAM – 4 GB (32-bit OS) or more (64-bit OS);
  • 3D pointing device – 3Dconnexion 3D mouse-compliant;
  • VideoCard – professional OpenGL-capable card (OpenGL 1.5);
  • HDD – free space more than 1 GB for projects and temporary files.


Note:        The recommended configuration of the computer much depends on the complexity of the models to be machined and machining quality. The more complex the model is, and the higher the machining quality required, the greater number of calculations will be needed to perform, in order to generate the tool movement toolpath. Therefore, the higher specification of the computer, the faster the calculations will be performed.
