Getting Started With 3D Gaussian Splatting for Windows (Beginner Tutorial) – YouTube


The optimizer uses PyTorch and CUDA extensions in a Python environment to produce trained models.

Hardware Requirements

  • CUDA-ready GPU with Compute Capability 7.0+
  • 24 GB VRAM (to train to paper evaluation quality)
  • Please see FAQ for smaller VRAM configurations

Software Requirements

  • Conda (recommended for easy setup)
  • C++ Compiler for PyTorch extensions (we used Visual Studio 2019 for Windows)
  • CUDA SDK 11 for PyTorch extensions, install after Visual Studio (we used 11.8, known issues with 11.6)
  • C++ Compiler and CUDA SDK must be compatible
