To operate a slicer software, it's important that your computer meets certain minimum technical specifications, which are outlined below. However, for optimal performance, we recommend that you use a computer that meets the recommended requirements. Please review the specifications carefully to ensure your computer can handle the slicer software effectively.
For suggested slicer software please check this post.
Requirements by Components
The processor (CPU) is one of the biggest system components that impacts a slicer software’s performance, for top performance we suggest greater or equal to the Intel® 3rd generation Core i5.
Memory shortage is another reason why the slicer software crashes or drops in performance while processing. Aim for 8 GB as the minimum quantity for your RAM storage, but if your budget allows it, go up to 32 GB+, as this will give you a significant boost.
Keep in mind that if your computer doesn’t have enough RAM, slicer software may start taking up disk space in order to continue running.
Graphic Card (GPU)
GPU can accelerate the slicing process significantly. Basically, the GTX850M is enough for the slicing software.
Additional storage is used by software when the computer runs out of RAM. Providing sufficient space for slicers to operate is important.
