Hey Richard,

When processing point clouds in Trimble Business Center, recommendations are:

- RAM: 32 GB or more 
- Disk: 100 GB or more on solid-state drive 
- Graphics:  OpenGL version 3.2 or later; 2 GB graphics card 
Notes:
- If you are using a laptop computer with both an integrated (on-board) graphics card and a discrete NVIDIA graphics card enabled via Optimus technology, your computer must allow you to select to disable the integrated graphics card and use only the discreet graphics card when working with point cloud data. 

 

- It is critical that you keep your graphics driver(s) updated if you are working with point cloud data.  Whether your computer has one or multiple graphics cards installed, you must ensure each has been updated with the latest driver provided by the card's manufacturer. The best way to determine if your driver needs to be updated and, if so, perform the update is to visit the card manufacturer's website (If, instead, you decide to update your driver using the Windows Device Manager and the "Search automatically" option, the program may suggest using a Microsoft-approved WHQL version of the driver. However, to ensure you have the latest bug fixes and new features for your graphics card, it is recommended that you use the latest manufacturer version instead.)
