Obtaining a Standalone License

Ideate Software for Revit comes with a trial that allows you to try the Ideate Software for a limited time. When the trial period expires you must obtain a license to continue using Ideate Software. All Ideate Software is full-functioning during the Trial period with the exception of Ideate BIMLink, which limits the data export to (25) rows of data and Ideate StyleManager which limits access to certain collections. 

Purchasing a License

An Ideate Software license may be purchased from the Buy It Now page, or by contacting our sales department for more details. 

Upon buying a Ideate Software license, you will receive an email with the license code which can be used to activate your copy of the software.  For more information, please see License Activation.

Licensing Multiple Versions

Ideate offers a variety of licensing models to suit customer needs.

Starting with the May 2018 releases, all standalone license codes that contain 1L (e.g. IAP-1L-XXXX) will automatically work for the current release and all supported previous versions. Activating one year version will automatically activate all versions on the PC, even those installed in the future, for as long as the Subscription is maintained.

Cloud Network Licenses are supported with starting the October 2020 release from version 2018 onwards.

FlexLM network licenses support all previous versions within a single license file by default.

Please contact your Ideate sales account manager, or [email protected] with any questions about licensing.

Home Use Policy for Ideate Software

Each standalone license of Ideate Software comes with two activations. Both can be activated to allow office and home use. If a user wishes to move the license on a different computer, they may return the license on the active computer first, then activate again on a different one. The number of allowed transfers is limited and enforced by the software.
