MyCAD is a new Gemini platform dedicated to the license owners, via which our partners and clients are provided with new options and opportunities.
The name of the new platform is MyCAD; it fulfills three purposes, being:
a brand platform and a vital space dedicated to the Gemini community. Here, the Gemini license owners will have access to useful messages and information, to inspirational or learning resources, to different intercommunicating and networking benefits.
a license management platform, where Gemini clients will be able to authorize and manage their licenses, based on the registration of organization and user accounts.
a SaaS (Software as a Service) platform, where the approved Gemini clients are to carry out the management of the special Gemini modules, available by subscription, Model History and Model Access Rights Management.
Furthermore, the registration and authorization of the organization accounts on the MyCAD platform is compulsory for all the persons holding Gemini licenses, with an eye on activating licenses.
Information regarding the client authorization and license activation
Gemini licenses can be activated through the configuration of an organization account on the MyCAD platform, which should be authorized by Gemini CAD Systems, that the organizations’ users must join, and where the USB keys they use should be registered.
The account configuration process is simple, there being clear and simple instructions at the level of each stage, that can be found in the application’s Help section, as well. The procedure involves these main steps:
Appointing a person as administrator; (s)he should configure and, then, manage the organization’s account on the MyCAD platform.
The administrator can access the MyCAD platform either directly, on the application’s URL, https://mycad.geminicad.com, or by clicking on Signup! , a button from the www.geminicad.com website, that is displayed when an installation kit is to be downloaded. As soon as the user has entered the platform, (s)he needs to open the Sign Up module and, first, create a user account.
When the user account has been validated, with the USB dongle plugged into the computer, the user is to wait for the interface to be updated.
The user carries on with the authorization process on the MyCAD platform, opting for becoming a Licensed User, and, next, for the Register organization function, a module where the company information is to be entered. During the procedure, the validation code to be filled in the form is generated from Shield, with the USB dongle plugged into the computer.
The authorization process ends with the stage where Gemini CAD Systems checks and validates the new organization (within a maximum of 48 hours), then sends a confirmation email to the administrator of the account. From this moment on, the client’s company owns an authorized organization account and can carry out the usual process of activating the licenses held, based on the activation codes received from the distributor or obtained by activating the Register online button from Shield.
Should the organization hold more USB dongles, the administrator adds to the account all the dongles owned, in order for him/her to be able to manage the licenses assigned to them.
If you don't have an already-existing user account, you need to create one.
To do this, start by accessing https://mycad.geminicad.com, and, then, click on Sign up now:
On the page that opens, you need to enter real and valid information about yourself and about the company you work for.
The email address entered will be your username on https://mycad.geminicad.com, therefore you need to use an address that you should be able to easily remember and access.
You need to click on Register.
As soon as you have entered the required information, and clicked on Register, you will receive a confirmation email at the email address you used to register. To do this, you need to access your email address, open the email and click on Confirm account to complete the registration process.
Note! If you can't find the email, you need to check the Spam folder.
On the Confirm your email page, you can change the language in which the platform's interface is to be displayed through a click inside the case and selection of the language.
After the confirmation, the user needs to enter a password that should be at least 8 characters long, containing uppercase letters, lowercase letters, alphanumeric characters and special characters of the type: ~, !, @, #, $, %, ^, &,
Note! Should the password fail to contain these characters, a message is displayed, urging the user to change it.
After confirming the password, the user needs to click on Link, to be able to connect to his/her account.
As far as MyCAD is concerned, organizations are companies holding GeminiCAD software products, that are validated through the possession of Gemini licensing USB dongles. The owner or the designated administrator of the company, after the initial registration of an individual user account, will register the organization, which grants him/her access to a new array of MyCAD functions.
The persons working for a company, after the registration of the individual accounts on https://mycad.geminicad.com, can be associated with that company, and can be granted access to the organization's online resources and settings, becoming full users of the MyCAD platform.
An organization's registration process starts by clicking on MyCAD from the MyCAD menu.
Should you wish to register a new organization, by clicking on Register, you have to confirm that you are the actual legal representative of the organization you wish to register.
To validate your Gemini license ownership, you will be asked to provide the serial number of at least one of the dongles you hold.
After entering the serial number and clicking on Verify dongle, you will be asked to enter the validation code.
To get the validation code, you need Shield to be installed. If it is not already installed, you need to click on Download Shield, and install the application.
After downloading Shield, follow the installation steps.
The following step involves entering certain details about your company.
After clicking on Register, and after confirming the organization's email, if the situation so requires, the newly-created organization awaits verification by Gemini CAD Systems.
Note! If you own or are working for an EU company, please fill in the company VAT number. If you own or are working for a non-EU company, or you are a non-juridical person, you can leave this field empty.
If you fulfill the conditions above, and choose to leave the VAT field empty when validating all the information in order to complete your organization process, you get to step 2, where you are asked to fill in other information about the company you own or work for (please see the print screen below):
A "Registration number type" and a "Company registration number" will be asked of you. Please fill in the company registration number type specific to your territory (e.g. GSTIN, TIN, CNPJ, CIF etc.)
Note! If the email provided when registering your organization is different from the one provided when registering as a user, you will have to also confirm the email used to create the organization.
A confirmation email will be sent to the email address used to register the organization. Click on Confirm to complete the organization's registration process.
The organization's confirmation process usually takes up to 48 hours. As soon as the verification has been completed, you will receive a confirmation email.
As soon as your organization's registration has been approved, you are able to manage it. Please, read more on this topic in the chapter that follows.
If the organization's registration has been declined, a message will be displayed, stating the reason of the declination, and you will receive an email at the email address provided when registering the account.
Depending on the cause of the declination, it is possible that you should not be able to resend another organization registration request, and you will have to contact the system administrator at email@example.com, for further information.
If you are allowed to resend the registration request for your organization, you will be able to access the organization's profile, to update its data.
This mechanism will help you to reassign the licenses on the organization’s USB Dongles.
The steps to be taken in order to reassign the licenses are:
2. Click on ‘’License reassignment’’ button (here you can change the way your licenses are activated on your USB Dongle):
The following window will be displayed:
