Research/Charitable/Retired (RCR) licenses for Graphite v11

Because of changing tax laws around the world, it is more and more to our customers’ advantage to order licenses for our CAD and 3D modeling software separately from the physical materials, such as DVDs and printed manuals.

Ordering Electronic Licenses: An email will be sent to you with your serial number, registration code and a download link. You will download a file directly to your computer for installation. PDF versions of the manuals are installed with the product and can also be found on the Documentation page of our website. No physical disk or printed material will be sent to you.

Ordering Anti-Piracy Key (Optional): Graphite uses anti-piracy software that must access our server across the internet at least once every 30 days. For those in remote geographical locations or in secure facilities without a ready internet access, a physical hardware key may be purchased and installed in the USB port, SD or micro SD slot. Be sure to purchase the correct type of key for your needs from Ashlar-Vellum or directly from CodeMeter.

To purchase licenses, you may call us directly at +1 800 877-2745 or purchase over the web by following the links below. Purchases made through our webstore are usually processed within the next business day.

We must receive your RCR pre-ship agreement in order to complete the processing of your Special-use License.
