Download Nvidia CUDA 387.99 Update (supports macOS 10.13.2)
See post for Info and download link.

(The previous CUDA 9.x versions were reported to work in macOS 10.12.6, despite not listing it on the download page. Curious if this version does as well, but not able to test that personally.) Update - Although the download page for this CUDA update lists driver .102 for build 17C88, I saw a report that it works with the later web graphics driver 3184.108.40.206.25.103 for build 17C89 (10.13.2 combo update).
