Our services

Simulation is more than software. That’s why eCADFEM is more than License as a Service. The services provided by the CADFEM team will give you the effective help and support you need so you can always use eCADFEM in a secure, transparent and flexible manner. That’s a promise.

eCADFEM maintenance entitles the user to use the latest software version, which is valid until the end of the maintenance period and was downloaded before expiration from the relevant software manufacturer’s customer portal. Use of a more recent version without correspondingly valid eCADFEM maintenance is not permitted under contract law. Maintenance is already included in the prepaid contingent unless otherwise agreed.

It comprises:

  • CADFEM support
  • password-protected access to download the software as well as other updates and service packs. 

Maintenance ends once the specified term expires; it does not renew automatically and is independent of the maintenance of any existing local licenses.
Once the eCADFEM maintenance expires, you are no longer entitled to hotline support and your access to the respective customer portal is deactivated. When an additional contingent is booked, maintenance begins with a new term, the previous maintenance term is overwritten and access to the respective customer portal is reactivated/updates are provided for download. *There might be special agreements apply to eCADFEM contracts outside of Germany, Austria or Switzerland.

Please note that support from our CADFEM Support team is not an alternative to software training and cannot replace an efficient induction for the various applications. Hotline support is only available within the valid eCADFEM maintenance term for activated eCADFEM products and in relation to program usage.

The usage extension of an eCADFEM account to other departments or divisions or to other company sites within Germany, Austria or Switzerland can be enabled through prior authorization via a software usage contract. The following is required per usage extension:

  • The main eCADFEM account must be in maintenance
  • Individual software usage contract per product group
  • Setup 
  • Supplementary ANSYS products: one-time activation fee for the ANSYS DesignModeler or the ANSYS Geometry Interface for Parasolid (if it has already been or is activated at the time of the main account usage extension, or if it is supplemented for one of the authorized locations or the main account)

Consistent IP dialing from multiple locations will apply different account assignments than only one location. We will be happy to provide more information on request.
