System requirements for running Lumion

Does Lumion work on my current computer?

Lumion requires a computer with a fast graphics card with plenty of memory, as well as an internet connection. To see how your current PC or laptop computer will perform with Lumion, you can download the free trial and run Lumion’s in-program “Computer speed” test.

Lumion will benchmark your computer on Graphics Card, Graphics Memory, CPU and system memory. If any of these components have a red score, you may want to upgrade this component for a better Lumion experience.
