Download & Purchase
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 VTK File Format
Visualization ToolKit (VTK) is an open source, freely available
software system for 3D computer graphics, image processing, and
visualization used by thousands of researchers and developers
around the world. VTK consists of a C++ class library, and
several interpreted interface layers including Tcl/Tk, Java, and
Python. The Toolkit stores geometric data in a file format known
as VTK. Very few CAD applications have the ability to read and
write VTK files.
