Important Notes:

While 3D Systems makes every attempt to be as thorough as possible, hardware manufacturers change their products frequently and may be shipping newer products or have discontinued active support for others.

The graphics drivers specified in these tables are the drivers that were used for the qualification process. While it may be possible to use the Geomagic modeling systems successfully on earlier or later drivers, 3D Systems cannot guarantee their performance.

Some 3D Systems users have had success running system configurations that deviate from the above. In such cases, these configurations are not officially supported by 3D Systems.
