During this process information about your PC is gathered, this is only done to ensure that the license is being used in accordance with the EULA. Other than that, once this type of license has been activated you can work in a self-contained, offline fashion – the very definition of standalone. The following sections take a look at the various options and commands available to you as a user of a Standalone license, and from the perspective of license activation through Altium Designer.
This, however, is a one-off event, after which you need not sign-in again from a licensing perspective. For convenience, controls for account access are presented at the top of the License Management page accessed by clicking the control at the top-right of the workspace then choosing the Licenses command from the menu. Click the Sign in link to access the Sign in dialog. The Connection , Sign in and portal Server details are all available on the System – Account Management page of the Preferences dialog.
This page can be quickly accessed by clicking the Account Preferences link in the License Management view. Alternatively, access the Preferences dialog click on the control at the top-right of the workspace and browse to the page within the System folder. Manage connection and sign-in credentials as part of your Altium Designer preferences. Once signed in, the Available Licenses region of the page will automatically present the specific licenses – On-Demand and Standalone – available to you for use.
In the example image below, Standalone licenses are listed and are available for the currently signed-in user. From within Altium Designer, the easiest way to activate a Standalone license that has not been previously activated, is to:. Having activated your Standalone license, you are free to sign-out of your account and work offline with the license.
This, after all, is the very nature of a Standalone license, and an aspect put to use by many. When you sign out, the grid in the Available Licenses region of the License Management page will change from showing available Standalone license s , to showing the Standalone — Offline license that you are currently using. To be able to use the license between two computers – for example, to work between the office and home though not running the two instances of Altium Designer simultaneously!
This requires first saving or backing-up the file. Backing-up the license file also means you will not have to sign-in to your account, and reactivate , should you accidentally delete the license file. To create a back-up, select the Standalone license in the Available Licenses region then click on the Save standalone license file link. Use the subsequent dialog to determine where to save the file.
In accordance with the EULA , the Standalone license can also be installed on a home computer, so long as this second installation is never used simultaneously with the original installation. You do not need to sign-in to use the Standalone license on the other computer – just add the license file and continue working offline with the license. The license will appear listed in the Available Licenses region as a Standalone — Offline license.
To remove a Standalone license from a computer – essentially deleting the license file – simply select the Standalone license in the Available Licenses grid, then click on the Delete link in the area below the grid, or right-click and choose the Delete command from the context menu.
A confirmation dialog will appear – click Yes to proceed. If you delete your Standalone license, then sign-in to your Altium account, the Standalone license is still available to you, although you will no longer be using it. The Activated field will reflect the license’s prior activation with the entry Activated. To use the license again, either add the Standalone license file back in or, if you haven’t made a back-up of the file, simply reactivate the license, using one of the following methods:.
When reactivating a Standalone license within Altium Designer, and that license has already been activated, a dialog will appear alerting you to this fact and warning that using the license again may conflict with another user on the network if they are using the same license. If you are sure that you are the only person using the license, click Yes to proceed with activation. The Activated field will change to Used by me. In addition, a history of activation can be viewed by clicking on the arrow symbol to the left of the license entry.
This will show who activated the license, and on what date. STEP files can be imported and used in Altium Designer through two distinct approaches, both of which use the same mechanism. The approach used is essentially dependent on how a STEP file will be applied in a design:. Note the simplified, but accurate, form of the STEP model on the right.
Typically developed and then exported from the MCAD domain, the imported enclosure model can be placed and precisely aligned in the board design to check for clearance violations and accuracy.
Using the same mechanism outlined above, a 3D STEP model file can be imported into a component footprint definition to provide a fully rendered 3D component body for that component.
Alternatively, to replace an existing 3D Body shape applied to a footprint such as a Cylinder, for example , simply select its 3D Body object and load the STEP file using the Generic 3D Model option — this type of change is easiest to perform with the editor in 3D display mode.
