Keyshot: How to install and license the Keyshot 3 or 4 add-on for Alibre Design?

Please Note: This article only applies to keyshot versions purchased with Alibre Design prior to April 2015.

Keyshot is a standalone application. This means that when you download and install your CAD application you will not automatically have access to Keyshot. This guide walks you through installing and licensing your Keyshot software: 

1) Save and run the Keyshot installer files to install the program.

If you have Keyshot 4 or earlier, navigate to https://www.alibre.com/downloads/downloads.aspx and click the "Keyshot" download to acquire the installer file. 

If you have Keyshot 5, you may download the Keyshot 5 Installer files at      *LINK 2*

2) Launch Keyshot and enter the licensing dialogue.

If you have a new Keyshot license that has never been used, follow the directions below. If you need to migrate an existing Keyshot license, please click     *LINK3*

        A) Start Keyshot.

        You should be greeted by the below screen. Select "Register with your serial code for a full license" and click the "next" button.

               

        B) Select "Activate new license with a full serial code"

        And click the "next" button.

           

        C) Enter your provided Keyshot Key. 

        And click the "next" button. If you have purchased Keyshot, and do not have your key, you may request it by emailing support at support@geomagic.com or submitting a ticket online here.

           

        D) Click the "next" button past the animation feature prompt.

        You will not enter anything into these screens.
