Graphic Card

A decent graphics card, ideally a NVidia model >= 6000 (the 8XXX models perform well). To use the realistic rendering mode, the graphic card has to be compatible with the rendering engine we use (RedWay 3D). Most of nVidia graphic cards are fully compatible.

Configuration

A usual configuration will be made of « x » TopSolid’Design Clients computers, all connected to a TopSolid’Pdm Server computer. It is strongly advised to set up TopSolid’Pdm Server on a dedicated computer, with large storage capabilities (1 Tb minimum).
