About | Developments | B3 | System Requirements

1. Operating System: Windows 2000/XP
The B3 program, examples, and online manual files require about 30MB free disk space. RAM memory min 32MB, recommendation is 512MB; NVIDIA graphics cards recommended. B3 is licenced using the Wibu-key system; this system was selected for its excellent system stability and ease of installation/use; it allows floating seat use of B3 over the LAN. A free USB port is required for the Wibukey USB-stick; alternatively the PC must be in a LAN which is connected to the WibuKey server PC.

2. CADfix
The B3 setup software will install B3 into an existing CADfix installation. The oldest version of CADfix on which B3 will function is CADfix 5.1 with Service Pack 1, or CADfix 5.2.

Other CADfix users remain unaffected
The B3 installation into CADfix will only be performed for the user who installed B3 under his own Windows log-in name. The other users will not have any B3-installation and will therefore have an unchanged standard CADfix installation.
For example, the fracture specialist may install B3 into a corporate-wide floating seat of CADfix under his log-in on his PC. Under this name he can use B3. Under a different log-in name on the same PC, he cannot use B3. Likewise, the other CADfix users, e.g. in the stress analysis department and the CAD department, will not be affected by this B3-installation.
