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.

Devices

Applications can make use of the following devices:

Note: When using with Freeform, Freeform Plus or Geomagic Sculpt, please refer to the software Release notes or the Software Downloads pages to determine the latest validated driver to use with the software.

Important Note:

IEEE-1394a compatible Firewire interface is supported for Win 7. However, Win 8 and 10 support is not guaranteed. Microsoft has dropped support for the components in the 1394 drivers which enable legacy mode, something that is often required to assure a particular card functions properly with Omni or PCC converters for parallel port devices.
