Creo 6.0 is the leading CAD platform – but it can be hard to figure out how much it actually costs. So, we’ve decided to break it all down for you.


Creo 6.0 Price Tiers

The latest Creo releases are in packaged tiers. This gives users the most flexibility in terms of pricing and features. The tools included in each Creo 6.0 package are designed to optimize all components of the design process and increase productivity so teams can innovate faster.

Your Creo 6.0 price will largely depend on the features your organization requires and whether you plan on sharing a license or purchasing multiple.

Tier Name Price
1 Creo Design Essentials $2,430-$2,980
2 Creo Design Advanced $5,967-$7,340
3 Creo Design Advanced Plus $11,300
4 Creo Design Premium $15,990
5 Creo Design Premium Plus $22,100

Tier Descriptions

Each package has all of the features included in the previous tiers and then adds even more tools. If there is a specific extension at a higher tier that your organization needs, it is possible to purchase it as an add-on. Keep in mind, however, that these add-ons are limited to one extension and can only be used if the cost of the package plus the add-on extension is lower than the price of the next highest tier.

  • Creo Design Essentials (Tier 1): Includes the core tools you need to design innovative products.
  • Creo Design Advanced (Tier 2): Has the same core functionality as Tier 1 plus tools for top-down design and concurrent engineering, as well as prismatic and multi-surface milling.
  • Creo Design Advanced Plus (Tier 3): The mid-level tier includes everything you need to design for additive manufacturing plus tools for advanced surfacing, mold design, behavioral modeling, tolerance analysis, and the GD&T advisor.
  • Creo Design Premium (Tier 4): Includes all of the advanced advisor tools for flow and fatigue analysis, simulation, and product machining. This is the first tier to also include extended collaboration features and the complete Mathcad platform.
  • Creo Design Premium Plus (Tier 5): This is the most comprehensive package and includes all of the features in the first four tiers as well as more advanced simulation and flow analysis, additive manufacturing for metal, the options modeler, complete machining, and the topology optimization extension.

This Creo package model provides more tools and flexibility at a better price point to fit different organizational needs.

Creo 6.0 Package Breakdown

Here are how all the extensions break down by tier. As we mentioned before, if there is an extension in a higher tier that you want to add on to your package, it is possible – contact us for more information.
