Get Started with Creo Simulation Live

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

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.

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.
