LumenRT is a 32 & 64 bits application, designed for the Windows® 32/64 bits XP, Vista, 7 and Windows 8 as well as Intel Mac OS X platforms. A Shader model 4 compliant video board is required. The better the video board, the better the experience, especially during playback of the LiveCube. A minimum of 1GB of video RAM is recommended (Video RAM should not be confused with system RAM. Video RAM resides solely on your video board). A 64 bit system is highly recommended for authoring LiveCubes (32 bit systems are fine for playback). LumenRT is either CPU or GPU intensive depending on the task being performed. The pre-processing phase is CPU intensive while the navigation/viewing process is GPU intensive.
Performance of the software is directly related to the power of the system running it. LumenRT is optimized to make the best of all the processors/cores on your system. The power of your video board directly impacts the frame-rate during real-time 3D play-back. Pre-processing times are directly related to the power of your system and the complexity of the scenes being processed.
LumenRT 2015 requires*:
- ArchiCAD 17/18 (Windows and OSX)
- CityEngine 2012/2013/2014 (Windows only)
- Bentley MicroStation SS3
- Revit 2012/2013/2014/2015
- SketchUp 7/8/2013/2014/2015 (make or Pro versions, Windows and OSX)
- Shader model 4 compliant video board
This is the machine on which you will export your scene from SketchUp. The more powerful the system, the faster the pre-processing phase.
- Windows Windows 7/Windows 8 32/64 or Mac OS X v10.6+ 32/64 (64 bit recommended)
- nVidia GeForce GTX 470 / ATI Radeon HD 6950 or better video board, with 1GB+ of Video RAM
- Core i5 or more powerful CPU
- 2+GB of free RAM
- 10+GB of free Hard Disk space.
This is the machine on which you or your client will navigate and explore the model. The more complex your model is, the more graphic power it will require for smooth playback. The faster the system, the better the visual quality and smoothness of the experience.
- Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8 32/64 or Mac OS X v10.6+ 32/64
- nVidia GeForce GTX 470 or ATI Radeon HD 6950 or better video board, with 1GB+ of Video RAM
- 2GHz processor or faster
- 1GB of free RAM (4GB recommended)
- 500MB of free Hard Disk space
