Requesting Password and License Strings

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

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 lmtools.zip utility and running it on your machine. Use the System Settings tab and copy the Ethernet Address that it displays. See below:

Example Email

Dear Hagai,

I would like to evaluate your Gerberunion Library. Please send me the FTP login, the install password and temporary key strings for my machine.

I got my ethernet physical address by using the LMTOOLS utility provided above

ethernet address = 00560abE72

Reason for Evaluation

I intend to use the program to covert Gerber data to outline data in and convert to GDSII. I want to do this from my own calling program.

Thanks much,
