This article will assist you in selecting the optimal hardware for your 3D scanning and post-processing needs for Artec Studio 16
In Artec Studio 16 HD reconstruction performance was improved and now you can postpone HD reconstruction and execute it on different hardware you used to scan the object.
A list of general hardware and software requirements can be found further below.
Important note: USB 3.1 compatibility is not guaranteed, please use Artec USB Kit
Recommended NVIDIA drivers:
- OS: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OS, any 32-bit OS
- Virtual Environments (Windows OS installed inside a Virtual Machine) are not supported
- Graphics/video cards: AMD FirePro M6100 Fire GL V, Intel HD 4600, Quadro T1000/T200 for Artec Leo HD scans
- CPUs: Intel Core i7 8550U, Intel Core i5 8350U, Intel Core i7-1065G7 with integrated graphics
If the graphics card does not meet the minimum requirements (or an outdated graphics driver is installed), the HD reconstruction algorithm will be executed on the CPU instead of the GPU.
This will cause the algorithm to perform many times slower, potentially taking multiple hours to complete even the simplest calculation.
