Can I improve the 3D textured Mesh by adding surfaces ?
because when i do so, the checkbox: Use for DSM and Triangle Mesh isn´t enabled.
The option "Use for DSM and Triangle Mesh" is disabled because you are logged in with a Discovery License.
In order to use it, get a trial or ask for a Pix4D solution to our sales department
If you have more question about this, ask on the corresponding article.
Sorry about that.
Student licenses? We have it at the campus lab but the systems are older now and render times are slow I would like to keep using it at home where I have better hardware and more time. especially with larger projects it can take an entire lab time for the render.
There are education licenses that can be acquired by your institution. More here:

Thanks the school has those licenses and are installed in the lab but unfortunately then we can only use it while at the campus and with the rendering times by the end of class we can start working on a project or we have to wait until the next class. I was hoping to be able to run at home as a student license.
The best solution for you would be to talk to your professor and ask whether you can use the classroom credentials to log into the software from your home.
So, the first step would be to install Pix4Dmapper on your computer. In case you won't have the right executable file we can help you with that. Afterwards, you have to log in giving the email address and the password of the Pix4D account to which the EDU license is assigned. The third step is to choose the license type you want to use. At the very same time, your professor can control your use and deactivate your machine when needed.
If your processor would be sceptical about giving you the credentials, he can invite you to purchase a student license. It's a cheaper license in comparison to other commercial licenses.

Hello pix4D team,
Could you force a log-out on one of our account that was using a discovery mode?
As for now, you don't have any device that is logged into Pix4Dmapper in Discover Mode.
Let me know if you need anything else.
pix4d discovery can generate orthomsaico?
Hi Jose, No. Pix4D discovery processes only 2 steps, step 3 is disabled and none of the outputs can be exported
I'm a little lost, can't find download link for pix4d discovery software, or is it integrated in another main app??
You should download Pix4Dmapper. When logging in, if you do not have a valid license, you will get into the Discovery mode.
Hello, I have a valid Pix4Dmapper license purchased Sept.8, 2020, for one month use on my desktop. After downloading and installing, I have repeatedly tried to open Pix4Dmapper and the response continues to be Pix4Ddiscovery. I returned to the download page and installed again using the Repair option. No success. There is no obvious problem on the Plan page for my account. I have submitted Request #95537 and I am awaiting a response. Every day counts! Thank you.
If my client needs to view the projects on pix4d discovery, does that mean that the client will only have "pix4d discovery" for the 14 day trial? Please help with this.
Pix4Ddiscovery is a free product and does not have a time limit. The user can open and see processed projects only for step 1 and step 2 (Pix4Ddiscovery does not give access to step 3). For more information, please visit here.
