What is needed?

What is needed to run the CNCSimulator Pro version?

  • Internet: Cable or DSL.
  • Windows operating system: 7, 8, 10 or later.
  • CPU: Intel Pentium or better.
  • RAM: 1 GB or more
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce, ATI Radeon or similar graphics card for best performance.

Hardware requirements are hard to specify. You will need a pretty modern computer with a decent graphics card. If your hardware is old and slow, your simulations will run slow too. The best you can do is to test the simulator on your machine and see if it runs at an acceptable speed. If not, update your hardware or uninstall the CNCSimulator Pro.

You need a wheel mouse to zoom in and out.

You need to have the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 or later installed. If it is not on your system, the program will start with an error. You can download and install it from Microsoft at this page:
