Dear Users,

During coronavirus pandemic, for all APLUS free of charge in current version.

Don't worry about licenses, stay at home and keep working..

We were scared by the number of emails with new home-license registrations, some of them "I don't have APLUS at home, so I go to the office...".

If anyone would have a problem with a home license for AutoCAD or GstarCAD please let us know, we will contact Autodesk and Tmsys to help you.

Although, that's how we can help.

Stay calm and don't work too much.

Greetings from the APLUS Team
