System requirements

Undet for Ares Commander is a plug-in for Ares Commander® software that can only be installed on Windows PC’s with Ares Commander® installed.

Operating System: Windows OS 64-bit. MAC is not supported (incl. Boot Camp).

Supported Ares Commander versions: ARES® Commander 2024 for Windows® 64-bit

Technical requirements: the Minimal technical requirements are the same as for Ares Commander, but since Undet is dealing with point clouds, which is 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 working 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 an 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 a 3D Graphics accelerator card 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.

NOTE: In cases where you have multiple GPU’s, Undet for Ares Commander will only utilize one of those GPU’s. In some cases, you will need to manually disable the integrated video card.
