Get Started with Creo Simulation Live

Bring better products to market faster with real-time design feedback.

You’re about to use the best simulation tool on the market, allowing you to iterate more quickly, generate more options and design with greater confidence.

Let’s ensure you have the best experience with Creo Simulation Live by going over system and hardware requirements.

Step 1: Check Your Version of Creo Parametric

Creo Simulation Live is available in the following versions of Creo Parametric. If you need to upgrade your version, use the corresponding installation guide.

Creo 4.0 (M090 or later) | Creo 4.0 Installation Guide
Creo 5.0 (5.0.4.0 or later) | Creo 5.0 Installation Guide
Creo 6.0 (6.0.1.0 or later) | Creo 6.0 Installation Guide
Creo 7.0 (7.0 or later) | Creo 7.0 Installation Guide
Creo 8.0 (8.0 or later) | Creo 8.0 Installation Guide
Creo 9.0 (9.0 or later) | Creo 9.0 Installation Guide

Step 2: Perform a Hardware Check

Ensure your computer has the right graphics card to support Creo Simulation Live. You’ll need:

  • A dedicated NVIDIA GPU card based on the Kepler, Maxwell, or Pascal architecture OR
  • A later architecture and a minimum of 4GB of video RAM. 8GB of video RAM is recommended for better results. The latest NVIDIA drivers installed.
