The system supports all monitors capable of running at a resolution of 800x600 or higher. The GibbsCAM window is dynamically resizable from approximately 640x525 to the highest resolution your monitor will support. Please be aware that with monitors running higher monitor resolutions you will need more RAM to support solids and Cut Part Rendering as well as a better video card. Recommended and actual requirements do not have a definite value. Your requirements will vary depending on the complexity of the part you are working with. If you use only the basic Mill or Lathe modules the minimum requirements shown below are quite adequate. We recommend Keeping Windows fully up to date with all service packs and updates as they are released.
Laptops - If you are considering the purchase of a laptop for use with GibbsCAM please call technical support at 800-654-9399. Most modern laptops come with dual video cards which can cause stability problems.
Support for the following CPUs was dropped with the release of GibbsCAM v9.5:
Intel Pentium II and Pentium III
Intel Celeron processors <= 1.3Ghz
