RADAN and e2i System Requirements

The following specifications will allow the software to install and run, however as you can see the requirements are very low compared to PC's that are in common use. To ensure your PC can perform reasonably, it is always best to exceed the hardware specifications.


  • 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 (not needed if update media is downloaded from the Hexagon Customer Portal)
  • 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

RADAN CAD CAM with 3D / Radbend / Radm-ax / Radtube /Radpro / Radquote / Radmanager / 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
  • Graphics board supporting either OpenGL or DirectX:
    • Minimum 1920x1080 resolution.
    • Supporting at least 65,000 colors.
  • OpenGL graphics cards must support OpenGL 3.0.
  • DirectX graphics cards must support DirectX 9.0c.
  • Available RS232 Serial ports (one port per machine requiring RS232 serial DNC)
  • Keyboard and mouse
  • Network interface using TCP/IP
  • DVD ROM drive (not needed if update media is downloaded from the Hexagon Customer Portal)

Supported Operating systems

  • Windows® 7, Windows® 8.1, Windows® 10 – RADAN 2022.0 is the last version to support Windows 7 and Windows 8.1
  • Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows® Server 2012 (see Important note below for Server 2016)
  • We may require the latest service packs to be installed
  • ONLY 64bit versions are supported, 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

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 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.
  • RADAN 2014 CADCAM was the last release to support Windows XP, Radm-ax / Radtube will not run on Windows XP
  • RADAN 2015 CADCAM was the last release to Support Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and 2008
  • RADAN 2016 CADCAM was the last release to fully support 32bit Operating systems
  • RADAN 2017 CADCAM is supplied in 64bit. There is a lightweight 32bit version that allows RADAN to run (DNC/2DCADCAM ONLY), limitaions apply for importing data.
