What hardware is not compatible with Thor3D scanners?
  • We do not recommend using the built-in Intel graphics card on your laptop. While it might work well with Calibry Nest, it does not always work. There also have been problems detected with ASMedia USB 3.0 controller dated before 2015. 
  • * Certain video cards do not work consistently during the usage of the Live3D feature. Since we highly recommend using this feature during scanning by default, these video cards are not recommended:
    NVidia GeForce GTX 1060 6Gb
    NVidia Quadro K2200 (dual mode)
