Using MotosimEG-VRC, is like using advanced 3D CAD software. It can require computing hardware a little more powerful than the average business machine.
Below is a table displaying a sample of known, good hardware for light and heavy use.
Use Motosim Occasionally

- Two monitors are recommended to view the simulation graphics and the virtual pendantsimultaneously
- For mobility, a USB monitor is recommended.
- If upgrading to a more powerful laptop is not possible then an external GPU might be an option.
Tip: Professional GPU vs Gaming GPU
Many people think that gaming graphics cards (GPU) are sufficient when working with professional 3D software like MotoSIM. It is not. Gaming cards are not designed for the precision required and can result in screen corruption.
