Creo 10 has just been released—and with that comes new Creo pricing and updated packages. Here’s everything you need to know.

Creo Pricing Tiers

Creo pricing varies based on the features you’re looking for. This gives teams flexibility in getting the right license for each team member, which is especially convenient when some users need access to significantly fewer features. Here’s how that breaks down for Creo 10:

Package Locked License Floating License
Creo Design Essentials $2,950 $3,610
Creo Design Advanced $8,380 $10,300
Creo Design Advanced Professional Floating only $14,500
Creo Design Premium Floating only $20,100
Creo Design Premium Professional Floating only $27,700

The latest Creo 10 price starts at $2,950 for a locked license.

Locked vs. Floating

Design Essentials and Design Advanced are available with a locked or floating license. Both license versions have the exact same capabilities, but who uses them and how they are used is slightly different.

  • Floating license: This license can be used on any supported client machine and is not limited to a specific workstation. The license is specific to a particular server that controls the usage.
  • Locked license: With this license, software can be used on a specific workstation only. These licenses can be counted or uncounted.
    • Counted locked license: License usage is managed by a FLEXlm license server, and usage is restricted to the machine for which it is licensed. The server will allow customers to use up to the number of licenses purchased at one time.
    • Uncounted locked license: Permission to use the license is managed by the PTC application instead of a license server, and an unlimited number of license sessions can be run on a single machine at one time.

Are you considering Creo but don’t want to manage an on-premise solution? With the launch of Creo 10, the Design Essentials, Design Advanced, and Design Advanced Professional packages are now available in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) format. Creo+ is the exact same Creo platform you know and love—without the technical overhead—and provides:

  • Real-time collaboration tools
  • Efficient license management
  • Automatic updates
  • Built-in data security

Ready to Upgrade Your CAD Environment with Creo 10?

Access to the latest tools is critical to staying competitive. If you’re already up to date on maintenance, there’s no reason not to upgrade to Creo 10 (and if you’re on an older version of Creo, you could be missing out on some essential features).
