Minimum & Recommended PC Requirements

Postby US_Helpdesk » Wed Mar 02, 2011 12:57 pm

Recommended Configuration

CPU ---------------- Intel i7 / AMD FX 3.0 GHz or above
OS ----------------- 32 / 64 bit ‐ Windows 7 / 8 (64 bit support for most CMM hardware)
Memory ----------- 8 GB or more recommended
Hard disk ---------- 500 GB or more recommended
Graphics Card ---- 1920 x 1080 (v3.0+ includes dual monitor support)
Monitor ----------- 20” or above
PCI Slot ----------- Mini tower to accommodate full height PCI card if needed.

Note: If Serial connection is required and none is available on PC we suggest using the IO Gear USB to Serial adapter - http://www.iogear.com/product/GUC232A/
drivers - http://iogear.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1026

Note: Do not supply HP desktop with Mitutoyo ComUC / we suggest Dell t5810 workstation.

system requirements.

Postby Aguraki » Wed Jul 29, 2015 2:07 pm

I am trying to figure out how powerful of a computer I will need to budget for. I looked at the recommended pc requirements, but I think we will need more than this.

the CAD we use has a maximum file size of 255MB with 428 elements.

nate, I saw the post another user asked for system requirements based on CAD and you said you would need to see the CAD to evaluate. is this still true?

thanks.

Best bet is to minimize the number of processor cores and maximize the RAM and CPU speed. CMM-Manager only uses 2-3 threads / processes and will not leverage multi-cores. The extra cores only help if you are using several applications simultaneously and will cause a hit on individual application performance.

Send the model to Help Desk for evaluation if you are unsure.

How about graphics? While working recently with large Die Solid Assemblies, things got slow. CMM M. converts solids to individual surfaces. I had to go back to CAD and remove a lot of the details to speed things up.

Current - Win 7 - 32bit
Core 3 - 3.3 GHZ
2 GB Ram (Ouch)
Intel HD Graphics (Double Ouch)

Do you have any recommendations? I'm thinking dedicated Video. (CAD card?)
Does Nikon have a preferred video card?
The usable system memory caps at about 3 GB usable on 32 bit... video is included.
Maybe jumping to 64 bit and adding Ram would be better? Maybe adding 2 GB of RAM would help a titch? (Some will be wasted...)
