Frequently asked questions

FREE TRIAL

Can I get free trial?

Yes, free trial is available. Register and download it HERE.

How long is the free trial period?

You can use the free trial version for 10 nonconsecutive days - that means you can spend these 10 days whenever and however it's convenient for you within a 3-month period.

Is it necessary to leave a credit card number or any other commitment to get the trial?

No credit card data, no other commitment. We’ll be happy to see you as a customer if the software makes sense for you.

Is the software functionality restricted for the trial?

No limitations, you get full software functionality for the trial period.

Is the trial supported?

Yes, use support@cenos-platform.com for support. We also recommend looking into documentation.cenos-platform.com to study some tutorials.

Is simulation training available for trial users?

Yes, one free training is available. You can apply for it here - simply write a message to us. 

Do I need to have any simulation experience to work with CENOS Platform?

No, the software itself and the training are designed to get you into the simulation fast with no previous experience required. Users who already have some simulation experience will be surprised how easy-to-use CENOS is.

How much time do I need to learn CENOS?

Starting with templates, you’ll get first results in 10-15 minutes and will feel comfortable with 2D simulations from templates in 30 minutes. For complex 3D cases, you need 5 to 10 full days to be comfortable with simulation. We recommend taking one free training with our engineer to get you simulating faster. If you already have experience with learning other software for months, you’ll be surprised how fast you can get into CENOS.

LITE PLAN

What is the minimum period of LITE subscription?

The minimum period is one month. We charge a deposit for 3 months of subscription, which is 3 x $300, but you can terminate the subscription anytime and get refunded the deposit minus monthly rate that's already been used.

What is the time limitation for LITE subscription?

4 non-consequent days of CENOS Platform use per month are included. That means when you start using the software, using it within 24h will count as 1 day. 

Is LITE plan suitable for smaller businesses? 

The LITE plan is designed especially for small companies that don’t have design jobs all the time but once per month or more. Based on our statistics, 4 days of use per month is enough for small companies. Nevertheless, if at some moment you need a couple of days more, there is no need to upgrade the plan, you can simply pay for additional days of use post factum.

How can I pay?

You can pay with a credit card or ask for an invoice to wire payment.

Is the software functionality restricted for LITE plan?

No limitations, you get full software functionality.

Why do we charge a deposit?

When you start a subscription, we appoint our engineer to support your onboarding. In order to justify the engineer’s effort, we charge the deposit equivalent to 3 months of subscription. In case you decide to terminate the subscription earlier, you’ll get the rest of the deposit refunded.

What if I spend more than 4 days per month?

Additional days can be purchased for $250 (or €200) per day. If you spend more than 4 days, we will notify you and charge this amount from the deposited amount.

What if the software can't solve my case, I get errors and have lost a day?

In that case, please tell us about the problem and you will not be charged for this time. Our simulation engineers will be happy to help you to solve the problem.

How can I get support?

Please reach out to the support at support@cenos-platform.com or use the form within the software. Our simulation engineers will look into your problem asap and get back to you. If it will be necessary, you can agree on video-conference with the support team in order to clarify some issues or ask questions online. We also recommend looking into documentation.cenos-platform.com for some useful explanatory materials prepared by our engineering team.

Can I cancel my plan anytime and get my money back?

PRO PLAN

Pro plan is charged annually, thus the subscription period is 12 months. Although we understand it might be considered a bit risky to commit for a year. Therefore, we give you the option to cancel the subscription or downgrade it within the first three months of use, you’ll get money back for the unused period in this case.

Can I pay monthly?

Unfortunately, no. We accept annual payments for Pro plan in order to support our commitment to deliver regular updates that improve the software and create more value for our users.

Can I install CENOS Pro on multiple computers?

Sure, you can install the software on multiple computers, but you’ll be charged the subscription fee for each one with Pro plan. You might be interested to choose Enterprise plan if you want to install CENOS Platform on multiple computers, but simultaneously use it only on one device - it's called a floating license.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Can I use CENOS Platform offline?

You need to have internet connection when you start CENOS software. It is for license verification only. All data of your simulations do not leave your computer.

What hardware do I need to run CENOS?

You can run 2D simulations on almost any computer or laptop. For larger 3D cases we recommend to have at least Intel i5 processor (or similar) and 16Gb RAM. The recommended configuration will be Intel i7 (or similar) ar 32Gb RAM. RAM is the most important since it determines the maximal size of the case you can simulate - therefore, the more you have - the better for you. Some of our customers use as much as 128Gb RAM. Video card doesn’t play a significant role, any standard card will be good. For more information regarding the hardware requirements, read our blog post here.

Can I run CENOS on Linux/iOS?

Not yet, we support Windows 7, 8 or 10. We recommend Windows 10.

I’m a student/researcher/teacher, can I get any discount?

For sure! Since explicitly CENOS uses open source tools, we are happy to give back to the academic community. The academic license is free for non-commercial purposes. Click here for more details.

Can I use CENOS academic license for commercial project?

No, the academic license is for non-commercial research and study purpose only. You should contact our sales to buy a subscription in order to use the software for a commercial project even at university. Violation of these rules is subject to legal action.

Can I get additional training?

Yes of course! The first online training is free. The support is included in all subscription plans. Nevertheless, if you need more training, we’ll be happy to provide you online training at any time for $250 (200 EUR) per hour. If you prefer offline training - no problem, we charge $800 (650 EUR) per day, additionally you cover travel expenses and logging for our engineer. You can also consider coming to our premises in Riga, Latvia to be trained here with full immersion in the simulation environment.

I need support with my case, but it is strongly confidential.

We can sign a NDA.

Can CENOS do simulation for me?

We can provide a Premium simulation service which includes case preparation per your request. For the Premium simulation service, we charge $2,200 (1,800 EUR) per month with a minimum period of 3 months, and it includes 24 man-hours of our engineer’s work per month. You will get the case with an explanation along. Contact us here!
