Download & Purchase
Please download a fully functional trial of TerrainCAD by
clicking on the "Download Now" button below. To start using the software, you need a license key. A license key can be of two types: Trial or Permanent. A trial key is issued to you on the purchase of '7 day license' so that you may try the software before you purchase a permanent key. A permanent key is issued after you have purchased a license. We are confident that during the
trial period (7 days with unlimited runs) you will find TerrainCAD extremely useful. Later when you decide to buy the
software please return to this page and click the "Buy with/without Subscription" button to place your
order. Upon verifying the order you will recieve an e-mail with instructions on how to obtain your permanent key. We will create and send you your Key by e-mail
within one business day. To avoid disruption in your workflow we urge you to
place your order before the trial period ends.
IMPORTANT! Purchasing a Subscription is highly recommended since it the most cost effective way of keeping your software up to date. Moreover, Subscription entitles you to get a second free perpetual license for your laptop, among many other benefits. For details please read the SYCODE License and Subscription Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
Our licenses are single computer licenses and are locked to each computer they are installed on. Basically, the license key is specific to the computer's Host ID (the MAC address of the computer), and will not work on another computer. The installer picks up the physical MAC address of the network card connected to the computer which is basically “Ethernet adapter Network Connect Adapter”. So unless you change your network card, the key will always work even if you reinstall your operating system. If your internal network is periodically assigning a different Host ID to your computer, then please find a solution for this with your IT department.
Note: Downloading this software indicates your acceptance to the SYCODE Software License Agreement. The price mentioned above is for a single user license. For your bulk-licensing needs please contact us.

The TerrainCAD menu
Often terrain meshes need to be manually edited for various reasons. TerrainCAD makes this very easy by offering a host of terrain mesh editing commands. TerrainCAD has very useful commands to edit vertices, edges and faces of a terrain mesh. The terrain editing commands are listed below:
TerrainCAD also offers several mesh modeling commands. These commands help in altering the general topology of the mesh thereby making it suitable for further operations. The mesh modeling commands are listed below:
The figures below show a terrain mesh created from a set of unordered points using TerrainCAD.
