Radan and e2i - System Requirements

The following specifications will allow the software to install and run, however to ensure your PC is not preventing reasonable performance it is always best to exceed the hardware specifications wherever possible.

CAD CAM

  • Pentium 4, 2 GHz CPU or greater
  • 4GB RAM or greater (depending on OS)
  • 20 GB available storage
  • Graphics card capable of 1024 x 768 minimum resolution (32bit mode)
  • Keyboard and mouse
  • Network interface using TCP/IP
  • DVD ROM drive
  • Available RS232 Serial ports (one for machine tool that requires an RS232 serial DNC)

Note: This PC specification also applies when configured as a PC DNC, Radview DNC client computer or an e2i client

CAD CAM with 3D / Radbend / Radm-ax / Radtube / RadviewPlus Server / RadviewDNC Server / e2i Server

  • Dual Core, 2.8 GHz CPU or greater
  • 8GB RAM or greater (depending on OS)
  • 40 GB available storage
  • Dedicated graphics card capable of 1024 x 768 minimum resolution (32bit mode)
  • Available RS232 Serial ports (one port per machine requiring RS232 serial DNC)
  • Keyboard and mouse
  • Network interface using TCP/IP
  • DVD ROM drive

Supported Operating systems

  • Windows® 7, Windows® 8, Windows® 10 (see Important Note below)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows® Server 2012
  • We may require the latest service packs to be installed
  • Both 32bit and 64bit versions are supported (see below for Release 2017 of Radan and 32bit limitations)
  • Professional / Business versions of the operating systems are recommended

Important Note

  • Windows Server 2016 can have many different flavours and options (e.g. Nano, microservices, containers). We know of no reason why the Radan software wouldn’t run on Windows Server running in a desktop environment
  • Release 2014 of the Radan CAD/CAM software was the last release that officially supported any version of Windows XP
  • Release 2015 of the Radan software is the last version that supports Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and 2008
  • Release 2016 of the Radan software is the last release that will officially support 32bit systems.
  • Release 2017 of the Radan software is supplied to run on 64bit systems. There is a 32bit version that allows Radan to run in a lightweight mode (DNC / 2D CADCAM).
  • Radm-ax and Radtube will not run on Windows XP
  • Radan 2018 is only supplied to run on a 64bit system

Additional Notes

  • A Virtual Server will need a USB CLS Token (dongle) at an additional cost if it is to run as a license server. Please be aware not all Virtualisations can support USB Tokens.
  • A USB port must be available if the PC is going to be licensed from a CLS Token (dongle).
  • Software and subsequent updates will be shipped on DVD ROM only; however they can be downloaded from the Customer Portal.
  • Customers must present the Radan engineer with a pre-configured system if they are purchasing Radan's installation service. For networked applications the responsibility for the networking will be with the customer.
  • Application performance is dependent upon a number of factors e.g. Number of used applications or network traffic. Should you require further clarification, please contact your IT provider.
  • CPU Processor must the support SSE2 instruction set, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE2
