Mastercam System Requirements

As an independent software vendor partner with Dell, Mastercam receives and tests their latest hardware offerings to make sure that they are compatible with Mastercam. Once a system is received, Mastercam is installed and we run tests to insure the hardware platform and its individual components work without error. By eliminating the issue of incompatibility, both software and hardware vendors help reduce troubleshooting and resolution. If the system meets our approval, it is deemed “certified” and then listed on Dell's web page as a supported and recommended system from running Mastercam.

Clicking here will direct you to Dell’s Workstation Advisor page.  Please follow their wizard to find the Dell Precision Workstations that are recommended for use with Mastercam.


SolidBox is a turnkey hardware integrator for Mastercam end users. SolidBox sells servers, desktops, and laptops that are configured specifically for Mastercam. Systems arrive with Mastercam software pre-installed. Your requested version of Mastercam is installed and configured with the most compatible system drivers available. This allows you to open the box, plug in your HASP, turn on the computer, and start working! SolidBox does not sell Mastercam software, rather they work with your Mastercam Value Added Reseller (VAR) to make sure your license of Mastercam is properly installed and ready to work for you.
