System requirements

Undet for SketchUp is a plug-in for SketchUp® software that can be installed only on Windows PCs with SketchUp® installed.

Operating System: Windows 10&11 OS 64-bit. MAC is not supported(incl. Boot Camp). Virtual Machines are not supported.

Supported SketchUp versions: SketchUp 2022 & 2023.

Technical requirements: Minimal technical requirements are the same as for SketchUp, but since Undet deals with point clouds, which are often heavy and data-rich (millions of points having XYZ coordinates, Intensity and RGB values) some specs are worth upgrading.

RAM: The bigger the point cloud project, the more RAM will be needed. Most users with small-scale point clouds will be fine with 8 GB of RAM. When dealing with tens of gigabytes of scan data, 16 GB of RAM will be welcome. Heavy-duty point cloud professionals utilizing hundreds of gigabytes in a single project will appreciate 32 GB of RAM or more.

Hard Drive: An SSD is far faster than a HDD. LAN will reduce performance considerably if your project is located on a server machine’s drive. Thus, copy your project to the local drive for better performance. I strongly recommend using SSD. 

CPU: Multiple threads are not supported. Therefore, you need to pay attention to single-thread performance.

GPU: While your CPU can render graphics, it’ll do so at a much slower rate than a GPU. Thus, we recommend using graphical processors like NVidia or AMD with 3D Graphics accelerator cards with OpenGL version 4.4 or newer. For example:
Minimum (slow performance): NVIDIA or AMD GPU with 2GB VRAM.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660/Quadro K2000 and newer.
AMD Radeon R9 270/FirePro W5100 and newer.
The latest available drivers.

Recommended(good performance): Discrete Graphics card specifications such as GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB  or above with the latest available drivers.
