Unfortunately, MD don’t seem to like the idea of offering coupons, having affiliates to share revenue with or offering special deals.
Having practically no competition to their Marvelous Designer software, they see no reason to do what so many other companies do – AKA, provide special offers and coupon codes.
A Steamy Marvelous Designer Deal?
So of course, when Steam made a deal with Marvelous Designer to sell Marvelous Designer on Steam this made Steam look extra hot.
There was Special Price Offer of $200 for Marvelous Designer on Steam, versus the $360/y (with ongoing upgrades but access ends if you stop paying) or the perpetual license costing $550 (but without new version upgrades) you’d normally shell out on the MarvelousDesigner.com website.

The recommended Marvelous Designer system requirements to run Marvelous Designer 6 in 2017 successfully on your machine are:
- For WINDOWS OS – RECOMMENDED bare MINIMUM
CPU i7 3.0 GHz (Sandy Bridge, ivy bridge, and Haswell, Devil’s Canyon Microarchitecture)
GPU Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 and above
RAM 16GB and above 8GBNvidia graphic cards work best with Marvelous Designer.
Most ATI and Quadro graphic cards are compatible, but there may be problems with Intel graphic cards (especially HD and Iris).
- MAC OS – Not properly supported and or very buggy running MD on this OS.
We personally and unfortunately have an expensive 27″ iMac with every possible extra CPU and enhancements with a top graphics card and it still crashes very often on the Windows side. MD4, MD5 and MD6 are a nightmare to simulate here. On the Mac side you can forget it. Even Photoshop functions poorly on the Mac side and does better on the Window side of iMac. Best get a cheap $2k Asus laptop for better performance.
The Cloth Simulation takes a lot of time and resources, especially for fancy multi-layered garments with lots of material and detail. So the Marvelous Designer requires a powerful system/ machine. Best get one with as much RAM as possible, and the more cores the better you’ll fair.
