Connection requirements for 3D export

For best results, we recommend the following:

  • Use at least a 100 mbps/sec internet connection
  • Use a wired connection
  • If you are using a WiFi connection, avoid moving the computer whilst the download is in progress
  • Do not shut down, hibernate, or let the computer sleep during the download.


3D export allowance

When you purchase 3D Export you get an allowance for a certain number of square kilometres or miles. When a user on your account  performs the export, the area of the export is deducted from the allowance. For example, if you start with 1200 km2 and you export an area of 20 km2, you will have 1180 km2 left on your 3D export allowance.


The maximum export area is 50 km (20 mi2) and the minimum export area is 100 m2 (about 1000 ft2), which is roughly equivalent to a very small residential property).
