FAQ

Our latest version can always be found in the download section of our homepage. There is a difference however, whether you want to upgrade your system from one version to the next higher one (e.g. DCAMCUT 7.1 to DCAMCUT 8.0), or whether you just want to make an update (8.0 to 8.1) or if you just download a new service pack (e.g. 8.1.5331).

Version upgrade (example DCAMCUT 7.1 to 8.0)

If you want to upgrade to a complete new version of DCAMCUT, you generally need a new license, because your hardlock doesn’t contain the license for the higher version. We will gladly provide you with the new license for free, if you have an active support and maintenance contract. Just send us the appropriate request under order@dcam.de. We will then send you the respective license by mail.

Upgrades within the same version (example DCAMCUT 8.0 to 8.1)

For this kind of upgrade you generally don’t need a new license. It’s sufficient if you just download the new upgrade from our download section. You should keep in mind to also download the EDMCAD-kernel, in case changes have been made there.

Download Service packs (example 8.1.5331)

A service pack contains minor changes and bugfixes. You don’t need a new license for that.

The maintenance contracts are made up of the following components:

  •  the DCAMCUT system that you purchased (every license will be serviced separately)
  •  every NC processor you have purchased in support of your machines ( one purchased NC processor supports all purchased licenses)
  •  potential extras you might have purchased additionally ( e.g. material removal simulation)

If a newer version of DCAMCUT than the one you have purchased is available, then no license for this version will be present on your hardlock ( example: you have DCAMCUT 7.0 and want to download DCAMCUT 8.1). If you have an active support and maintenance contract, you just have to write an email to order@dcam.de, and ask us for the license for the new version. We will then quickly provide you with the license free of charge and you can use the new version of DCAMCUT. If you don’t have an active service contract however, we cannot offer you this service unfortunately.

If this message pops up after a small update, please start the license manager externally through the explorer or with the start button. There you will be able to newly register your license.
