Your computer must meet the minimum technical specifications outlined below to operate a slicer software. For optimized performance, please use the recommended requirements:
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 drop in performance while processing. Aim for 8 GB as the minimum quantity for your RAM storage, but if 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 softwares 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.
