Chrome 42+

Internet Explorer 11+

Note: you may have to enable WebGL in your browser. See here:



A broadband internet connection is required.

The Cape Pack web application cannot be used offline.

3D Graphics Hardware

Cape Pack uses a 3D technology called WebGL to allow 3D graphics to be displayed in your browser. For this to work you need a recent 3D graphics card (look for confirmation that your card supports WebGL) and you may also need to explicitly enable WebGL in your browser.

It is also important that you update the drivers for your graphics card to the latest version.

To enable WebGL in your browser. See here:  or contact the Esko Support for more in-depth assistance. 

In some case your GPU may be blacklisted by your browser. Please refer to for more information.

3D viewing may not work correctly on virtual machines due to the use of GPU emulation. For best results, ensure the VM emulates a non black listed GPU if possible.
