Getting Started with an Invitation to CadActive

When you are invited to be a CadActive user, you will receive an email message which looks like the following:

Your intended role as admin, collaborator, or user is indicated in the body of the email.

By selecting “Accept Invite”, you will be directed to the CadActive registration page where you will create your account. Fill in your first and last names and create a password. The phone number field is optional, but will be useful if we need to call you to provide technical support. The email field will already be filled in with your email address to which the invitation was sent. 

Note that your email address is the unique identifier for your account and will be used for login going forward. We recommend saving it somewhere :)

The first page reached after login is your dashboard.  This page is your starting point within CadActive.  It lists and tracks tutorials which you can take to learn about CadActive tools. Recent release notes are also shown on this page.

Step 1) Select the “Download Plugin” button to install the plug-in you will need to run CadActive tools.

Step 2) Select the location to save the “cadactive_installer.msi” file

Step 3) Open the installer “cadactive_installer.msi”.

Step 4) When the Setup Wizard launches select “Next>”

Step 5) Once the setup wizard has completed the installation, uncheck the "View readme file" and select “Finish”.
