Hi,

It's depending not only on the number of elements. The physic of the modell is also important, for example. Generally 1 million elements requires 1 GB of RAM for the run. But more is recommened. Processor: as fast as possible, with multicore you can speed up your simulation of course...

Best regards,
Attesz
