System Requirements

Product Design Suite 2017

Factory Design Suite 2017

Autodesk Inventor 2017

AutoCAD 2017

Autodesk design applications and Autodesk Vault must all be the same language on a given computer. English versions of these applications will run on any language operating system. Versions of these applications in other languages will run on operating systems of that same language.

Autodesk recommends settings that allow Microsoft Windows to manage virtual memory, as needed. There should always be at least twice as much free hard disk space as system memory (RAM).

The Inventor multimedia learning components require that you have Adobe Flash Player installed.

Display Requirements

With Autodesk software you can leverage the capabilities of professional-class GPUs (Graphics Processing Unit) to incorporate high-quality 3D models into your work flow. Easily boost your Autodesk performance with both Nvidia & AMD professional graphics solutions and create and interact with more accurate product designs without sacrificing visual quality.

AMD Radeon and nVidia Geforce cards are not professional class GPUs and are not recommended.

Only AMD FirePro and nVidia Quadro are recommended for production use with the Autodesk solutions.
