What you need for Muck3D

Muck3D is only offered as a 64-bit executable, so as a minimum you’ll need a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or higher.  Our software has been run on a wide range of computers with different amounts of ram, different graphics cards, and processors.

Our recommended specifications are:

Minimum requirement Recommended specification

* – The size of the datasets being manipulated will dictate the amount of memory required.  4 GB of RAM will allow the user to work with modest sized datasets, but to work with larger LIDAR datasets, the amount of RAM directly impacts the ability to open & process these.

** – Muck3D will function on computers with HD graphics cards, however they will not perform well with larger datasets.

Windows 10

Muck3D works fine with Windows 10, but for laptops that have both embedded and discrete graphics cards, Muck3D should be set to run on the discrete graphics card for the best performance.
