CAD Exchanger GUI. Floating license

Floating licensing model in CAD Exchanger GUI 3.9.2
  • The server licenses were tied to the PC’s MAC address, while the floating ones are tied to the server, hence letting the users work from different devices and connect both via the local network or VPN. Simultaneous use of the software is limited by the number of purchased licenses. To let one more user run the software, any of the current users need to close the program and thus release the license.
  • Before CAD Exchanger GUI was installed directly on the server. With the floating license, it is installed on the end-users’ hardware pieces and the server is required just to allow the use of the GUI. Running applications on remote machines is not always smooth: there is a strong dependency on the internet connection stability, while the server load is high and only growing with the more users trying to access at the same time. The floating licensing model addresses this problem.

CAD Exchanger SDK enhancements

From now on, CAD Exchanger SDK C# libraries are built against .NET Standard 2.0 and can be used in .NET Core 3.1 and .NET 5 applications. It enables integration with all major operating systems: Windows, macOS, and Linux.
