Have Questions?

  • What is NVIDIA Omniverse?

    NVIDIA Omniverse™ is a computing platform that enables individuals and teams to develop Universal Scene Description (OpenUSD)-based 3D workflows and applications.

    It is scalable thanks to the combination of NVIDIA RTX™ technology and USD. Omniverse fundamentally transforms complex 3D workflows, allowing individuals and teams to connect and customize 3D pipelines and simulate large-scale, physically accurate virtual worlds for industrial and scientific use cases.

    The platform is optimized and certified to run on NVIDIA RTX™ professional mobile workstations and NVIDIA-Certified Workstations and Servers, plus NVIDIA OVX™.

  • What is the difference between the standard, Omniverse Enterprise, and Omniverse Cloud licenses?

    The Standard license provides creators and developers free access to NVIDIA Omniverse™, our basic platform offering best suited for individuals looking to take advantage of OpenUSD and streamlined 3D workflows. Developers who wish to build custom applications, extensions, Connectors, or microservices on Omniverse will also have the option to monetize their solution and distribute it on the Omniverse platform, pending approval and adherence to NVIDIA’s terms and conditions.

    The Enterprise license provides organizations with access to NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise, our platform offering best suited for enterprise teams looking to  develop interoperable 3D workflows and OpenUSD-based applications on-prem.

    The Cloud license provides organizations with access to NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud, our platform-as-a-service best suited for enterprises looking to access a  purpose-built, full-stack cloud environment to develop, deploy, manage, and scale complex industrial metaverse applications, such as digital twins. Omniverse Cloud is currently offered via the Azure marketplace and is ordered in increments of Compute Nodes. Unlimited use of applications, cloud APIs, and platform components are included.

  • How much does Omniverse cost?

    NVIDIA Omniverse is free for individuals to download and use via the standard license. Contact sales to learn about NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise and Omniverse Cloud pricing.

  • What hardware does Omniverse require?

    NVIDIA Omniverse is built to run on any RTX-powered machine. For ideal performance, see recommended specifications .

    Looking for cloud deployment? Explore NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud.

  • Where do I go for Omniverse support?

    NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise customers can contact Enterprise Support for direct access to an NVIDIA subject matter expert that can provide timely issue resolution.

    NVIDIA Omniverse users are encouraged to visit NVIDIA Omniverse forums, documentation, tutorials, and our Discord server for answers to common questions and technical support.

  • Can I sell the app I’ve built on, or connected to, the Omniverse Platform?

    It's free to develop Omniverse Kit SDK-based apps, extensions, and microservices or Omniverse Connect SDK-based Connectors.

    Developers can sell their own apps, extensions, microservices, or Connectors on their own, or be featured in the Omniverse Exchange™ publishing portal. Developers are not able to distribute any NVIDIA-developed Omniverse apps, extensions, or microservices, nor Omniverse Nucleus or Omniverse Kit.

    End-users of the Omniverse-based app, extension, microservice, or Connector will need either a standard Omniverse license or an Omniverse Enterprise license.
