When the Apollo 11 landed on the surface of the moon in 1969, its combined systems contained significantly less computing power than a modern phone. In the decades since, developers have progressively created software that can accomplish truly phenomenal feats. A necessary tradeoff, however, has been a gradual increase in the computing power required to run such software.
To get the most out of the Adobe Substance 3D toolset, your computer must meet certain minimum requirements. 3D software in particular can require your computer to make an enormous number of calculations each second — so the higher the performance of your computer, the smoother and more hassle-free your 3D experience will be overall.
Here are some recommendations for the hardware you’ll probably need to ensure a fun, smooth 3D experience.
