    Out of curiousity, does anyone care to share the hardware that they find works best for the to run PC-DMIS. How much RAM? What video card? How fast is the processor?

    For reference, please indicate how you typically use PC-DMIS. Do you usually use large CAD files? If so, how big? Do you write programs with complex logic and branching? Do you make extensive use of hyper-reports?

    Finally, don't forget to identify which version of PC-DMIS you have. .

    supplied by Hexagon when they upgraded my Starrett

    Dell Precision 380
    P4 3.00Ghz
    1G ram
    XP Pro SP2
    ATI FireGL V3100
    70+ G Maxtor HD
    PC-DMIS 3.7 MR2
    Logitech wireless mouse (no like cords)

    PC boots extremely fast!
    PC-DMIS is slow to load though

    mainly program when the parts hit my table
    not too complicated...still learning this stuff (whole lot different from Apogee)
    no hyper-reports yet
    we use Catia v5 DCT fairly often (love using cad files)

      NVIDIA Quadro4 550 XGL

      I have a lot of problems especially with large CAD files. When running a program with large CAD files if I send something to the printer, PC-DMIS will quit running. If I have several other applications open, things get real slow and I have to shut down to clear the memory. I have been promised an upgrade as soon as things slow down enough for me to load a new computer and get it set up. I will get at least 1 GB RAM and a smokin' graphics card to handle CAD graphics. I should probably get a new printer with more of a buffer too so I dont suck up my memory for printing.

        Another thing which Don could ask is "What OS are you running?". Or "If running XP is the computer set for 'Best Performance' or 'Let the OS decide the performance settings.' Just my 0.02 worth.

          processor > 2.4mgz

          ram > 1gig (2gig recomended)

          vid card > GF5700 (get the card with the most ram on it)

          (> = greater than)

              on board grafics ???
              using lots of hyper reports
              pc is fast but takes atleast 15 seconds initially for pcdmis to load.
              I dont use many cad models but we do have that i consider large and works just fine with them.
