  • Apple provides regular updates to Java. Check "Software Update.." under the Apple icon for the latest version.
  • Note: When using OS 10.6, open Java Preferences (Applications/Utilities/Java Preferences) and change the preference order from 64 bit to 32 bit.
  • Download EM3D (Mac OS x 10.4, 10.5 or higher) and the optional sample datasets.

  • Place the resulting desktop EM3D icon into the Applications folder and optionally place an alias in the dock. If you wish to keep the compressed application file, locate the file in the Trash and move it to your hard drive.
