Register - Trial Version SolidPlant 3D 2018
The SolidPlant Trial Version has been limited in functionality mainly in order to reduce the file size for downloading.
- 60 day time limit; we have extended the trial period from 30 to 60 days in our new trial versions.
- Spec Creator is not included. Instead we have included several piping specifications that will allow you to create pipelines.
- ISOGen is not included; due to licensing agreements ISOGen is only available in the full paid version.
- Limited Pipe Routes; pipe routes are limited to 10 sketch segments.
- Limited Pipe Lines; there is a limit of 5 pipelines per project.
- Limited Equipment; limited to allowing 5 pieces of equipment per project.
- Limited Structure; limited to allowing 5 pieces of structure per project.
- Some functionality is disabled; some functions, such as Equipment Pattern, and Creating Backups of projects have been disabled.
These limitations help to reduce the download size of the trial version by about 1Gb. This will allow users with limited or slow internet connections to still download the trial version as the download time has been reduced by about 50%.
