Offers & Plans

We offer different subscription plans to choose the best for your needs.

Students and educational members can use Consteel for free! See how to acquire one. →

Subscription plans

You will need an active subscription to use Consteel software. Different subscription plans include basically a software license (defining the software seats, access) and Consteel Community Membership levels. There are one non-commercial (Trial) and three commercial plans.

The Trial plan is ideal for getting started with Consteel and to try its features for 30 days for free.

The Personal plan is for straight personal use where the contractor, payer, and end-user is one person.

The Team plan is suitable for companies where more engineers are using Consteel as end-users and the contractor and payer is not necessarily an end-user. In this plan, the use of Consteel can flexibly be managed and updated if necessary by the End-user management tool.

The Trial Premium plan is a special offer for those who would like to try Consteel without limitations. Under a risk-free contract that can be canceled at any time, we provide commercial use and Premium support to get the most out of your work for free for a month.

How to assemble your subscription plan?

1. Do you work alone or in a team?

In a Personal plan, you only need to choose a software limitation (Starter or Full) and a Consteel Community Membership level (Basic, Pro or Premium) for your needs.

Teams are free to request different numbers of seats and access within the software license plan and various Consteel Community Membership levels associated with the software accesses. See how flexible a Team plan can be here.

2. How complex are your projects?

Depending on the complexity of the projects, we offer two different solutions (Starter and Full) for commercial needs.

3. How much additional service do you need?

We offer a wide range of additional services within the multi-level Consteel Community Membership system, which is linked to all end-users through their software access to help them to work with Consteel more efficiently.

For paid subscriptions, there are three membership levels to choose from so that each user can receive the services they need (Basic, Pro, or Premium). For each software access a Basic level Consteel Community Membership is automatically assigned, Pro and Premium levels are available for an additional fee. Trial subscriptions automatically include Pro or Premium levels.

4. Which payment method would suit you best?

The subscription fees of the paid (Personal and Team) subscription plans cover two basic types of services, the software license, and the Consteel Community Membership. Basic level Consteel Community Membership is free of charge, the Pro and Premium levels are optional choices for any of the software accesses with an additional fee.

We offer two pricing models:

Subscription without entry fee

Classic subscription model with periodically billed fees of equal amounts. The subscription can be ended and restarted at any time. Ideal for project-based software use. Two types are available: 

  • Monthly subscription
  • Yearly subscription

Subscription with entry fee

A modified subscription model where the first, entry fee is a larger amount followed by an equal periodic fee term with significantly lower fees compared to the subscription model without entry fee (similar to the one-time license fee and yearly upgrade fee model). The subscription can be paused with special conditions. Ideal for company-based software use.

  • Only yearly subscription is available.

How do software seats and access work?

With an active subscription, the end-user can use always the latest software version. During the subscription period, the software license grants the use (and in the Team plan the end-user management) by software accesses and software seats, the number of them is defined in the subscription plan.

Software access: grants the end-user the right to access and use Consteel software through software seats. Every access is connected to a Consteel Community Membership level.

Software seat: the software seats ensure simultaneous, independent software access as one seat can be taken only by one user at a time.

The licensing system allows the use of Consteel exclusively, but also to share a seat with several people if users need to work with Consteel less often.

In the Team plan, each software seat comes with two software accesses by default, but more software accesses can be requested for an additional fee if required. Any access can be flexibly connected to any seat in the end-user management tool. A quantity discount is available for multiple software seats.

Software access and seats for a Team plan

  1. Decide how many of you would like to use the software at the same time? This will give you the number of required seats.
  1. By default we provide two accesses per seat.
  1. If you need more access, you can request as much as you want.
  1. By default, all access is granted a Basic Consteel Community membership level.
  1. Users can be added to accesses. Higher-level memberships can be selected for an additional fee.
  1. Accesses can be flexibly assigned to seats, as one access can be assigned to several seats and more than one access can be assigned to one seat.
