Multiframe System Requirements
Multiframe is a highly efficient program and does not require state of the art computers to run smoothly. Basically any computer that can run Windows XP or Vista can run Multiframe.
That said, the larger the designs you are working with, the more computationally intensive the analyses - so if you're dealing with large models then you need to scale accordingly. Generally though, RAM is more important than CPU speed - so it's better to have larger amounts of memory than a faster processor. We'd recommend at least 1GB of RAM for most users, and 4GB or more if possible.
We are progressively adding more multi-processor capabilities to Multiframe, multi-core machiens will give faster postprocessing of results.
Installing all of the Multiframe applications and documents requires a maximum of 200 Mb of disk space.
As with any design program - the use of a large monitor is recommended and to increase rendering speed for larger models we also suggest a dedicated video card that supports Open GL 1.2 ( recommended - not required). We've typically found ATI or nVidia cards are ideal as they generally have excellent driver support and are readily available. You do not need ot buy an expensive card however, even the low end (approx $200) cards work well.
