To take advantage of the performance enhancements available for viewing 3D models, your graphics card needs to have at least the minimum requirements listed below. Cards with less than the minimum requirements are supported; however, they might not be able to successfully use all the performance enhancements.


(for systems with large models)

OpenGL 2.0

OpenGL 2.1 or later

128 MB RAM

512 or more MB RAM

Additional requirements and/or recommendations for cards include:

  • In general, workstation-level graphics cards provide better overall performance with 3D model files than desktop graphics cards.

  • The card must be manufactured within the last three years.

  • Use updated drivers (at least within the last 6 months).
