Downloading Netex-G & NETEX-ODB

Requesting Password and License Strings

Prior to downloading you should contact Artwork and request the following information:

  • ftp server login and password

  • program installation password

  • program license strings

  • include your full contact info.

In order for us to generate license strings you need to provide us your machine's ID. This is best done by downloading the utility and running it on your machine. Use the System Settings tab and copy the Ethernet Address that it displays. See below:

Also please tell us whether your input is Gerber/Drill or ODB++ and which output format you need: GDSII, ASCII, DXF, EGS, ANF. The same program supports all these options but license generation is different.

Problems Accessing our FTP Site?

Artwork's FTP site requires a login and password to gain access. This information will be provided to you with the license strings.

If after clicking on the link you get a This Page Cannot be Displayed error, this may be due to Internet Explorer's problems accessing password protected FTP servers. In that case, please review the possible fixes on our support page.
