    Hello team pix4d,

    We want try a pix4d desktop software to understand the workflow, we had tried your steps, by clicking on ‘click for trial button’ it’s directing to pricing page. Can you help for this. how to get a trial???

  • Marco (Pix4D)

    Hi Ankit,

    From our License System, I can see that the license on your account is already expired. However, it is possible to request for a second trial that will give you 10 additional days for testing the software. To do so, simply launch Pix4D Desktop when your current trial license expires, login with your Pix4D account and select the trial license option to redeem your second trial license.

    If it does not work, please write us on Contact Support

    Hi, I would like to ask how many times can we use free trial version of Pix4Dmapper on the same laptop?

    I have been using the free trial version for a few times and extended trial 10 days but recently I activated a new account for a free trial again but it no longer generates orthomosaic maps?

    Please help, Thank You

  • Marco (Pix4D)

    Hi Lindy,

    Trial license should be used only once on a computer with one user account and can be extended once.
    If we detect trial abuse for the same computer, we will block it.
    If you want to use our software, I strongly encourage you to contact our sales department and ask for an offer.

    If step 3 is disabled, it means that you are logged with your discovery license or you trial license is over or disabled.

  • Lester Kemp

    I have signed up with an account - but don’t plan to use the 14 day free trial as yet (but I see that it has already started counting down the days even though I haven’t used it!). Is there any chance of re-setting it back to 14 days and only counting down once I decide to actually use the software?

  • Marco (Pix4D)

    Hi Lester,

    As mentioned in the first point of this page:
    A 15 days Trial license is automatically created under the account."

    Meaning that your trial period has already started cannot be differed.
    However this trial period can be extended on demand.

    Sorry about that.
