System Requirements

EM3D V2.0

EM3D V2.0 runs as Java/C++ application under Windows XP, Macintosh OS X (10.4.x, 10.5.x or later) and Linux (FC 5 or later).

Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.5 or higher is needed to run EM3D, and 1.6 is highly recommended. If an appropriate version of Java is not installed on your computer, it can be downloaded at http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp.

For faster performance please update your graphics drivers on a regular basis:
For NVIDIA cards go to http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp.
For ATI (Radeon) go to http://ati.de/support/driver.html.
Rendering problems in EM3D may be attributed to out of date graphics drivers.

Because of the nature of electron microscope tomography data analysis, computer processor speed and memory are important—the more, the better. Systems should have minimum 1.5 - 2 Ghz processor* and 2GB or more of memory. Mac users should have a G5 or Mac Pro Intel.

*Ideally you should have a high-end graphics card, multiple CPU's, 4GB+ RAM, a fast hard drive, and a 64-bit operating system.

A three-button mouse makes the best use of EM3D's features.
