4. SpacePilot Pro 3.16.1 Certified Plotters and Printers Creo 4 .0 supports HPGL, HPGL/2 and PostScript standard plott ing formats. In addition, Creo 4 .0 supports the Microsoft Print Manager. Emulation Various manufacturers produce printers and plotters that may be compatible with or emulate a device that use a format which is supported by PTC. Most devices are not specifically tested by PTC and therefore, may not produce correct plotted output. PTC Tech nical Support will attempt to provide support for any printer which is using a standard supported format, but only to the extent of verifying the output to a previously tested and readily available printer. Any support pertaining to the correctness of emul ation can only be made by the manufacturers of the device in question, and not by PTC. The Microsoft Printer Manager creates an emulation of what appears on the screen and attempts to print this. Since this emula tion is between the Print Manager driver a nd the printer/plotter driver, quality and results may vary. 3D Printers To speed up the development of Additive Manufacturing functionality, PTC is partnering with Stratasys , a manufacturer for 3D printing equipment, to streamline 3D printing workflows by using direct interaction between PTC Creo and supported Stratasys 3D printe rs. Support for additional printers is planned. Objet500 Connex3 Objet Studio 9.2.11.6581 prerequisite.

3. Certified and Supported Graphics Cards PTC provides Customer Support for all certified a nd supported g raphics cards. G raphics cards are part of a fully - certified or supported configura tion (such as a workstation model, operating system, graphics card, graphics card driver). PTC does not certify or support graphic cards independently from the configurations in which they are certified or supported. R efer to the official PTC Platform Support web page for specific hardware partners and available configurations. Additional certified and supported workstation hardware information will be added to the PTC Platform Support web page as our hardware partners complete certifications in preparation for p roduction Creo 4 .0 shipment .

DVD drive NOTES 2. PTC does not test any specific technologies which provide UNC support (Samba, DFS, WebDAV, NAS appliances, etc .) Graphics Information For 3D - hardware acceleration, an OpenGL graphics card must be used that has been tested in a PTC - certified configuration. To ensure the compatibility of a graphics dri ver with Creo 4 .0 , a PTC certified or supported hardware configuration is recommend ed. Graphics cards that support at least OpenGL 4.0 are recommended for Creo 4 .0. PTC recognizes that customers can benefit from using latest graphics driver and performance optimizations and improvements made by PTC’s Graphics Hardware Partners. With new workstations being continuously certified by PTC, the most current graphics driver s used in the certification process can now be re - app lied to previously certified configurations, as long as the configuration belongs to the same combination of workstation and graphics hardware families. Dual Monitor Support Limited dual monitor support is pro vided in Creo 4 .0 . PTC has successfully perfor med limited testing of some graphics card models from AMD and NVIDIA that support dual monitor capabilities. If your graphics card is certi fied for Creo 4 .0 and provides dual monitor support**, PTC expects that it will run in this mode without issue. PTC will provide limited support to resolve issues arising when running in dual monitor mode, however, the entire solution will not be submitted for formal certif ication as a complete configuration. I n the event that dual monitor mode fails, we advise use of Span mode as a workaround. ** C onsult with AMD , NVIDIA, or the hardware platform partner to confirm the availability of this functionality with a given graph ics card that has been certif ied with Creo 4 .0 .
