VisualARQ License Modes

License Modes


VisualARQ has four license modes:


VisualARQ runs in Viewer mode when the evaluation period has expired. When this happens, you can open and save documents that contain VisualARQ objects, but some features are disabled:

  • VisualARQ commands
  • Edit VisualARQ objects using properties and control points.
  • IFC export.
  • VisualARQ Grasshopper Components.


All VisualARQ features are fully functional during the trial period. No product key is required.


A valid product key is required to run VisualARQ in standalone mode. Buy VisualARQ to get a valid product key.


The VisualARQ Zoo plug-in lets you share VisualARQ licenses (product keys) among users on the same network workgroup.

When VisualARQ is installed as a workgroup node instead of stand-alone, it works like this:

  • When a workgroup node starts, it requests a license from the Zoo.
  • An unused license is assigned to the node.
  • When a node shuts down, the license is returned to the Zoo license pool.
