Desktop and Application Streaming

Stream PTC Creo CAD Application on Amazon AppStream 2.0 in 6 Easy Steps

Creo is a market-leading suite of desktop CAD tools for 3D product design and development. With the new normal of running operations remotely, companies want to make it easy for their design engineers to access Creo from remote locations to perform their design activities. You can use Amazon AppStream 2.0 to securely stream the Creo CAD application suite to your design engineers without having to manage any infrastructure. Amazon AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed, non-persistent application and desktop streaming service, which supports streaming graphics applications to users. Users can securely access their applications through an HTML5 web browser, or using the Windows native client and also manage user access using their existing Active Directory credentials. The Windows native client supports multiple monitors up to 4K resolution, USB device support such as a 3D mouse, and a native application mode. AppStream 2.0 provides a fast and fluid experience at a fraction of the cost of running and managing graphics workstations with a simple pay-as-you-go pricing model, without any upfront investments or long-term commitments.

We have published the Amazon AppStream 2.0: PTC Creo Guide which describes how to deploy and stream PTC Creo to your users using the Graphics-Pro and Graphics-G4DN which are powered by NVIDIA GPUs. The guide does not require any prior knowledge of AWS or AppStream 2.0 to get started. Engineers using Creo can access advanced rendering capabilities in any product design workflow and achieve smooth model manipulation even with larger assemblies. NVIDIA RTX also allows engineers to experience real-time engineering simulation with Creo Simulation Live, and accelerate generative design with Creo Generative Topology Optimization Extension to create better products faster than before, and speed time to market.

Now your organization can leverage the AWS Cloud and Creo CAD application from PTC to accelerate time-to-results and time-to-market. With this simple and scalable deployment model, each user accesses the same version of your applications. You centrally manage your applications on Amazon AppStream 2.0 and can stop managing installations and updates on each user’s computer. Furthermore, Creo can be seamlessly integrated with your PTC Windchill PLM platform running on AWS, as well.
