Getting Your Machine's Hostid

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.
