Operating Systems

All CGTech software has been extensively tested on Widows 7 64-bit. Newly released Windows 10 64-bit OS testing has not revealed any issues to date.

VERICUT 7.3 was the last release to run on Windows 7 32-bit.


When considering system requirements you need to consider all the tasks it will be performing.

  1. What is the physical size of the part to be simulated?
  2. What other software applications will be running concurrently with VERICUT?
  3. What requirements will the other applications have (both memory and graphics)?

Note: VERICUT performance is primarily affected by the simulation tolerances used and the speed of the CPU’s. The faster the CPU speed, the faster your programs will run. The length of part programs being simulated does not affect VERICUT speed. In addition, the number of CPU’s (cores) can boost performance, especially when running multiple applications concurrently.

Visit the Intel site to review the current CPU’s available and learn more about the latest CPU technology.


The amount of physical memory in your computer will affect the number of applications you can run at the same time without having physical memory limitations affect performance. When running VERICUT, the physical size of your part, tolerance, program size and features used also impact the amount of memory required for the simulation. For most VERICUT simulations, eight GB of physical memory is sufficient, along with a few other applications running concurrently. When the part sizes are substantially larger (400” x 100” x 100” or more), or tolerance requirements are very high, you may need to increase memory to 16-32 GB.


Make sure you are using up-to-date drivers from your card manufacturer. We often see issues that are resolved with updated video drivers and the driver version can have a great impact on how the card performs. The latest drivers for NVIDIA and AMD can be found online.

The majority of our users utilize dual monitors for increased productivity.

The minimum recommended resolution for the primary display is 1920 x 1080. VERICUT can be used with lower resolution screens but beware that some larger dialogs may be not fit entirely in the viewing area.


VERICUT takes up to 4GB of disk space for a full installation (full installation includes a library of files, samples, training sessions, help files, and model interfaces). A large capacity hard drive is recommended for Data storage

Pointing Device

VERICUT allows users the option to set dynamic controls to match the CAD/CAM system.
