Clinux PC Requirements

Chrome or MS Edge Broswer
Clinux runs over the cloud, so you will need either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge web browser to log into the software ( When logging in, please use the CAD-Ray username and password you used when you purchased Clinux.

PC Specification
Clinux CAD does not use a lot of computer resources as it runs in the browser. However, the higher performance the laptop/PC, generally leads to higher performance in Clinux CAD also. At the very least, Clinux CAD should be used on a PC that is also able to smoothly operate the intraoral scanner. Also, please make sure Google Chrome (or MS Edge) are using the high-performance graphics card on your laptop/PC. Many times the browser defaults to the on-board graphics card which slows down performance.

PC and Mac
Clinux runs in either PC or Mac environments. However, Clinux Bridge (connects Clinux to milling CAMs and printer CAMs) is a Windows-only application for now (new OS-independent version coming soon).
