VES1 has been added to the download forum, it is still a solid piece of software the runs on much lower specs.
I was wondering if you could re-publish the original minimum recommended specs for the Version 1 simulator as I am looking to build a simple version of the simulator in order to convince my department to invest in an up-to-date version. Unfortunately my (relatively powerful) home computer is AMD-based.
A search revealed the following for anyone interested:
"a standard Core 2 Duo personal computer with a GeForce 8,800 GTX graphics card, and surgical interaction was provided through a relatively inexpensive (approximately $2,500) Phantom Omni haptic 3D pointing device"
From other searches, it seems that this version was FireWire compatible.
Sorry for the delay, but these requirement are still valid! The Ves 1 also works with the usb version of the Geomagic Touch.
I will soon publish a beta version of VES3 that will run on lesser hardware than VES2
