An academic license must not be used for any commercial work or for-profit research work.

Beyond that, the software may be used by faculty, staff, educators, researchers, and students associated with the Educational Institution. The software may also be used for administrative purposes meaning activities that are not directly related to instruction or education such as asset mapping or construction modeling for the Qualified Educational Institution.

No, there are no technical differences between the educational and commercial versions of the software. Both versions have the same features and functionality.

Faculty, staff, educators, and researchers have full access the Golden Software support services. These services include email, phone, and LiveChat support as well as access to all of our online resources including knowledge base, help documents, tutorials, training videos, forums.
