Viewer

Modified by on Jun 11, 2021

If you have engineers that sometimes need only to view a project and therefore don't need a full license, they can leave the full licenses available in your organization's pool by using a viewer license. This article reviews some options based on your circumstance.

Applicable Versions: All Versions

Solution Details

Viewer options:
View, print, and cross-probe single documents or entire projects in one comprehensive interface.  With AD20.0.10 and newer versions you (and everyone on your team) can use the "Get Viewer License" control/link/button at the bottom of the license management page to put a perpetual On-Demand viewer license in your individual AltiumLive account (you won't have to share it) almost immediately.  (You must be signed in with your AltiumLive account, but not using a license.) Here's documentation:

There's also an online viewer that lets you share the design with others:
Altium 365 Online Viewer https://www.altium.com/viewer is a fast, simple, and reliable way for anyone to explore and share ECAD content, design, or manufacturing data quickly without installing any software.  It can be embedded into your own website with a short HTML code snippet.  It does not require CAD, and supports most of the popular CAD formats.  Your design is available for the duration of your browser session and is automatically removed when you close your browser tab. Alternatively, you can choose to share your design through a link where it will be available to anyone with the link for a limited period of time. Altium 365 Viewer is completely free; more features become available once a user creates an account.  https://youtu.be/b34o5oN2hR8
 
If you are using an older version of our program, and the Online Viewer doesn't meet your needs, you can get sign up to have a free 6-month viewer license added to your organization's license pool from here:

(If you need three or more, or a private server version, please contact your account manager)
