SOLIDWORKS has very specific requirements for use related to the CPU and RAM.
- [Instructor] When using SOLIDWORKS…as your main design tool,…it's important to understand the CPU and RAM requirements…that SOLIDWORKS has.…By creating a machine that ideally…exceeds these requirements,…you have a better chance of increased productivity…and less failures while working in SOLIDWORKS.…Let's take a look at the SOLIDWORKS CPU…and RAM requirements.…Going to SOLIDWORKS.com,…clicking on support,…and then clicking on hardware and system requirements,…we now find our SOLIDWORKS system requirements.…
Here you see SOLIDWORKS list the requirements…for all their software packages…as well as when they stop supporting Windows software.…We're only concerned with this top section right now.…As you can see, they list Windows 10, Windows 8,…and Windows 7.…All of these are still supported.…They also list SOLIDWORKS 2016, 2017, and 2018…because these are all also supported.…It's good rule of thumb to work…inside of the software packages…that still have support available.…
