Activate a License Key

Once you have purchased a subscription, you will then receive a License Key that you will need to input to activate Enscape. There are no License Keys required to run Enscape in Trial Mode. To activate an Enscape License Key, whether Fixed Seat or Floating, open the General Settings via the Enscape ribbon in the CAD.

Click the Licensing menu option. Then click the Enter License Key button.

If you receive any error messages when trying to apply your license, you can contact us at either licensing@enscape3d.com or support@enscape3d.com to get further help.

If you are using a Floating License and receive a message stating you have exceeded the number of seats, this can be caused either by there being no seat available (Enscape is open on another machine on your network) or because you are unable to connect to our Licensing server to confirm the License Key. If you have problems connecting to the Enscape Licensing server, then you may need to add proxy server information or add exceptions to your Firewall. To do that, please refer to this article.

Please note that when there is no seat available on a Floating License, all core features of Enscape are blocked and a notification is displayed, as is also the case when a License Key or a Trial License expires. Core features of Enscape include: the rendering engine itself (Enscape Viewport), Material Library, Material Editor, Asset Library (including the Custom Asset Library), and lastly, Enscape Objects (SketchUp only). In such a case, you will need to wait for a seat to become free, or contact your license administrator if the seat count on a License Key requires increasing.

Remove a License Key

To remove or deactivate an Enscape License Key, for example when you need to move the license to another machine, open the General Settings and click the Licensing menu option. Then, click the Remove License Key button, which will unbind the license key from that machine whereby, if the license key is a Floating License Key, activation of the license / seat on another machine will be possible. If it’s a Fixed Seat License Key, there will be two buttons available. Clicking the Remove License Key button will simply remove the license key on that machine, as is with the Floating License Key. The other button that will be available is named Deactivate License Key and will simply deactivate the license key but will not remove it. This means you will be able to reactivate the license key again at a later date on the same machine if required, by clicking on the Activate button and without having to paste the license key in again.

If you have reinstalled the operating system without removing the License Key beforehand, or if you have uninstalled the CAD and therefore can no longer access the Enscape General Settings to deactivate the license, even though Enscape is still installed on the machine, or if you have problems with activating / deactivating your Enscape License Key in general, even after checking your proxy settings and firewall exceptions, then please contact our licensing department via the email licensing@enscape3d.com.
