eCADFEM ANSYS Licensing

CADFEM service provides CAE licenses on demand based on a permanent internet connection. In this section we present instructions for accessing eCADFEM ANSYS licenses on Rescale's ScaleX platform. CADFEM provides an unique value for the variable (LM_PROJECT) which is a 12-character combination of numbers and letters. After you have obtained an LM_PROJECT code from eCADFEM you can follow the instructions outlined below to run ANSYS jobs and spin up Rescale ANSYS Desktops on ScaleX platform.

NOTE : To obtain eCADFEM ANSYS licenses, users will have to reach out to eCADFEM directly since Rescale does not provide the licenses. Please contact ecadfem@cadfem.de for obtaining the licenses. More information can be found on www.ecadfem.com.
