BlockRanger Software Licenses

A BlockRanger license is included with FLAC3D (version 6 and higher) and 3DEC (version 5.2 and higher) license keys. Griddle may also be purchased separately as a standard, perpetual license. When the USB key is not present, the program operates in "Demonstration Mode".

BlockRanger is a plug-in to the Rhinoceros 5.0 3D CAD software and requires a licensed version of Rhinoceros 5.0 3D CAD software to run.

Request a software quotation or contact Software Sales if you have any questions.












The license is effective in-perpetuity for the software version purchased.






In this configuration, BlockRanger is secured with a USB key that must be connected to the BlockRanger user’s computer. The USB security key may be moved between computers and users as needed. This option is ideal for an individual or for multiple users utilizing the software within the same office.



In this configuration, a USB security key and license management software are installed on a server while the BlockRanger program is installed on end-user computers. The network license is purchased with a specified number of seats (number of simultaneous users). The program may be installed on as many computers as needed. If the computer is connected to the network that has the BlockRanger network key installed, then BlockRanger will run in an unrestricted manner provided a seat is available. This license is ideal for a centralized IT- administered organization.


Demonstration Mode

If BlockRanger is started without a standard or network license key, a dialog box will appear, indicating a BlockRanger hardware key was not found and the program will run in demonstration mode. In demonstration mode, BlockRanger is fully functional in every respect, except the BlockRanger surface remesher and volume mesher output a maximum of 600 surface or volume elements respectively. The BlockRanger surface mesh intersector does not operate in a demonstration mode. There are no time restrictions in Demonstration Mode.
