Tekla Structures License Compliance

Hiring a detailing subcontractor who uses pirated software can not only lead to disaster for your project but also put your company's reputation on the line if you are caught using them. As Computers & Engineering, we are here to ensure that you to have a positive experience when dealing with subcontractors both locally and overseas.

One key part of a positive experience is having clarity when engaging with subcontractors for the first time. Although we have seen a reduction in piracy with the online licensing, we still encourage checking licenses and models. Currently, you have multiple ways to check the legitimacy of these. Here's how to ensure that the subcontractor you hire isn't going to end up costing you more in the long run.

License Check

Illegitimate licenses will corrupt your models or have hidden malware and ransomware that can ruin your business, causing delays, and loss of money and time. For Perpetual licenses, never loan your licenses to anyone outside your company; your licenses are your investment and once installed in someone else's machine, you won't have any control over what happens to them. Check that the company has enough legitimate licenses by contacting us at support@comp-engineering.com.

Model Check

By requesting a sample model (.db1) of the detailing company's past work, you can confirm that it has properly trained employees who are able to do the job according to your standards. Models (.db1) can be checked by sending it to us at support@comp-engineering.com. We can verify if the model was done by the subcontractor.
