Tradesmen’s OS3DE will run efficiently on most Windows PC’s and Parallels/Windows on Intel Macs.
- Windows Operating System
- Internet Connection
- Nvidia Graphics
The Minimum Hardware Recommendations to run the latest version of Tradesmen’s On-Screen 3D Estimator:
- iCore 7 Processor
- 8 GB of RAM
- 4 GB Video Card
- 1920 x 1080 screen resolution
- Multiple Displays (one for OS3DE and another to review Plan Documents)
The software requires an NVIDIA video card for optimum performance. AMD/ATI, Intel, Trigger 6 External Graphics and External Hubs/Docking Stations are known to produce undesired results with the graphics in OS3DE. We recommend that the display used for OS3DE be plugged directly to the Computer/Nvidia graphics card.
Remember these are minimum recommendations. For best results, work on a computer that exceeds them by as much as possible. If your machine is over 3 years old, consider replacing it completely rather than upgrading it. Mixing years of technology and hardware may produce undesired results.
Running multiple displays is highly recommended, one for On Screen 3D Estimator and another to review plan documents. It is typical for laptops to have one external port for secondary displays, desktops can support multiple graphics cards with multiple ports. Set yourself up for success!
