        [FAQ200] What you should know about purchasing Carlson Software
        +

        About Carlson Software, the Company

        Carlson Software is a software developer based out of Maysville, Kentucky. They have been developing land development-focused software since 1983 and their offerings include modules for the land surveying, civil engineering, construction and mining industries.

        FAQ: About Carlson Software

        About Carlson, the Software

        Carlson’s desktop programs run on 64-bit MS Windows-based computers.

        Carlson programs work natively and produce DWG format files. There is NO need to convert, import or export – only Open and Save.

        The programs are primarily delivered as “vertical” modules that can be installed and run on top of a generic-CAD platform.

        Carlson’s desktop modules for land surveying, engineering and construction are built to run on top of the ITC’s IntelliCAD and Autodesk’s AutoCAD platforms. The modules include: Survey, Civil, Hydrology, GIS, Geology, Underground Mining, Surface Mining, Natural Regrade, Field, CADnet, GeoTech, Trench, Construction and Point Clouds.

        Additionally, Survey and Takeoff are developed and run on top of an embedded AutoCAD (OEM).

        You Have Options!
        Purchase Carlson with the Platform that's Best for You

        Option 1: With IntelliCAD/for YOUR AutoCAD

        Carlson’s desktop programs can be installed as a standalone program on top of IntelliCAD or on top of your separately-purchased, full-AutoCAD-based program.

        Each purchase includes a license of the latest version of IntelliCAD – it doesn’t have to be purchased separately.

        Your separately-purchased, full-AutoCAD-based program can be AutoCAD, AutoCAD Map, Land Desktop, Civil 3D or other vertical – but does NOT include AutoCAD LT.

        The following modules are available with IntelliCAD/for YOUR AutoCAD: Survey, Civil, Hydrology, GIS, Geology, Underground Mining, Surface Mining, Natural Regrade, Field, CADnet, GeoTech, Trench, Construction and Point Clouds

         

        Option 2: With embedded AutoCAD (OEM)

        Carlson Survey and Takeoff can be purchased and installed standalone with embedded AutoCAD (also known as the OEM version).

        Each purchase includes a license of the latest version of embedded AutoCAD (OEM) – it doesn’t have to be purchased separately.

        Note that embedded AutoCAD (OEM) is more similar to AutoCAD LT than AutoCAD – so, experienced AutoCAD users may end up missing much of the functionality they are accustomed to.

        The embedded AutoCAD (OEM) programs do not include IntelliCAD and do not require a separate purchase of AutoCAD.

        Importantly, although both programs can be installed on the same computer, programs installed with the OEM platform will be completely separate from those installed with IntelliCAD/your AutoCAD.  This means that you will not be able to work in a DWG file and simply switch between menus – you’ll have to close the drawing in one program in order to open it in the other.

        Carlson's Versions vs AutoCAD's Versions

        Carlson Software typically releases a new version of their programs approximately 4-6 months after Autodesk releases each new version of AutoCAD.

        Carlson Software will run on earlier versions of AutoCAD; however, you cannot run a version of Carlson that is older than the AutoCAD. For instance, Carlson 2024 will run on AutoCAD 2018-2024 but Carlson 2022 will only run on AutoCAD 2018-2022.

        Which Program or Modules Do I Need?

        We definitely recommend that you request a 30-day trial and test it for yourself – but here are links to help you decide!

        Upgrading Carlson Software

        IntelliCAD/for CAD Products

        Upgrades are managed through the Annual Maintenance Plan which, essentially. allows users to pre-pay for future upgrades.  As long as your Maintenance is active at the time a new version is released, you are eligible for an automatic upgrade to the new version.

        See additional information about Maintenance below…

         

        Survey and Takeoff with embedded AutoCAD (OEM)

        Maintenance is NOT available for these products so upgrades are only available after a new version has been released.

        The cost to upgrade Carlson’s OEM products is subject to change each year and varies depending on the program and how many versions behind you are.

        However, Carlson never charges more than 50% of the current retail price to upgrade any license to the latest and greatest version of the software.

        You can click here to request Custom Pricing for your upgrade.

        Carlson Software Annual Maintenance

        Maintenance with New Licenses

        Every new license of Carlson with IntelliCAD/for CAD includes 90 days of free Maintenance. This is Carlson’s way of ensuring that anyone who purchases a new license inside of that 90-day window can be assured of getting the free upgrade.

         

        Renewing Maintenance Before it Expires

        Renewing Maintenance is optional for users.

        However, if you prefer to keep your software up-to-date when new versions are released, keeping the Maintenance plan active is the best way to do that.

        If it is renewed prior to expiration, maintenance costs 10% of the retail price of the software.

         

        Renewing Expired Maintenance

        If your Maintenance has expired, you can pay the regular 10% Maintenance fee plus the expiration fee to activate your Maintenance for one-year. While Maintenance is active, you’ll be eligible for an immediate upgrade to the current version AND for automatic upgrades to any new versions released during the Maintenance year.

         

        How Old is Too Old (to Renew)?

        For licenses of Carlson with IntelliCAD/for CAD that are more than 4 years old, users can pay 50% of the retail price to activate Maintenance for 1-year.

        While Maintenance is active, you’ll be eligible for an immediate upgrade to the current version AND for automatic upgrades to any new versions released during the Maintenance year.

        See the tables below for sample pricing for Carlson Maintenance.

        Carlson Licensing

        Perpetual Licensing

        A purchase of Carlson Software grants a perpetual license to the owner. This means that, once purchased, you “own it” and never need to pay additional fees to use it.

         
        Network Licensing

        Carlson allows users to “network” their licenses for an additional fee. The fee is 10% of the retail price of the software being networked.

         
        Installing and Re-Installing

        When installing their desktop software, Carlson recognizes 5 different “Reasons for Installation”:

         

         

         

         

         

        After installation and registration, Carlson provides a Registration Report that includes a “Change Key” and it’s a good idea to save the report and the change key.

        And here’s a Pro-Tip for you! The Serial Number screen on your That CAD Girl Customer Portal has a “Customer Notes” section – that’s a great place to save your Change Key and other important information about each license!

        System Requirements for Desktop Software

        Because it changes from version to version, my “go-to” answer is this FAQ which links directly to Carlson’s website and their recommendations for running Carlson with embedded AutoCAD (OEM), on top of AutoCAD and with IntelliCAD.

        FAQ: What are the system requirements to run Carlson Software in the office? Do I need a monster computer?

        Technical Support & Training

        Carlson Software offers FREE technical support for Carlson Software and IntelliCAD. This is the case whether you are running the latest version of Carlson or one that’s 10 years old or, even, if you’re only trying before you buy.

            [FAQ201] Why should I purchase Carlson from That CAD Girl instead of someone else?
            +
            Whether you need 1 license or 10, That CAD Girl will give you the same level of support and service.

            We don’t try to get rich off of any single sale or customer. Instead, we give decent discounts on Carlson software products that still allow us to provide as much free support, service and training to our customers as possible.

            We can’t always be 100% successful, but our goal is to answer every email and phone call and to be an extra resource for your organization.

              [FAQ508] Why don’t you post recordings of your webinar series presentations for all to see?
              +
              Basically because I consider these CAD webinars to be live, interactive training – like a virtual classroom. Instead of reserving a conference room here in Raleigh and inviting everyone in, we’re doing it online. And, if you were coming to a live presentation in a conference room, there’s no expectation of a recording afterward.

              The advantage of doing it this way is to keep the material fresh. I repeat some of the topics but, just because it’s called “Surfaces, Centerlines and Profiles” in March, doesn’t mean you’ll get the same exact lesson if I repeat it in November. For one thing, between March and November, a new version of the software with updates and new features will have been released and I’ll have different things to show.

              Now, on the flipside (I’m a woman, you know there had to be at least two-sides… right?), I DO record each webinar and make it available for a short period of time but only to those who attended it live. That’s just to allow those who sneezed or rattled a bag of potato chips at the wrong time to figure out exactly what I said or what options I picked.

              And, you can always use this link to my Video Library to watch the webinars I’ve done in the past for Carlson.

                  [FAQ506] Am I eligible to attend your Carlson Software webinars for free?
                  +
                  If you have purchased a new license of Carlson Software directly from That CAD Girl in the preceding 12-months, you’re eligible to attend any and all webinars listed here, for free!

                  You can also log in to your That CAD Girl Customer Portal to confirm your webinar eligibility:

                  The fine print: There will be a limited number of “seats” available for the sessions (limits of the technology). If we start bumping up against the limit of attendees, only one person per company will be able to attend each session. If we have plenty of seats available, that won’t be an issue.

                  On the Free Webinars tab of your portal, you can find links to pre-register or join a session in progress.

                  Follow this link to pre-register for any webinars you’d like to attend.

                    [FAQ505] Why did you start doing your webinar series for Carlson and CAD training?
                    +
                    In 2013 I became overwhelmed by requests for one-on-one Carlson and CAD training – the requests were mostly from new customers who needed an introduction to Carlson, but also from experienced users wanting to know more about Carlson Field to Finish or other more advanced topics.

                    Over a 3 week period I had 14 2-hour sessions with different people or groups. At that point I realized I needed to find a better way if I wanted to continue to support those who purchased software from me – and the webinar series was born!

                    Now it has grown and is, I think, a great way to make everyone happy. Those needing an overview of the software or particular features can get that on a regular basis. And, it frees me up to offer more specialized training to those who want and need custom training.

                          If it’s movies and videos you want, Carlson has an extensive library of recorded webinars and I’ve posted the webinars I presented on Carlson’s behalf here in my Video Library.

                          And, if you prefer written material, you may be interested in my Carlson Self-Study Training Manuals. These don’t cover everything Carlson… they’re more of the inch-wide but mile deep variety.

                            +
                            We can, and in a couple different ways.

                            Carlson generates and sends renewal notices automatically but they are only sent to you and the Carlson reseller located nearest to you geographically.

                            Because the notices don’t always make it to you, That CAD Girl does our best to stay on top of those and get them posted to your That CAD Girl Customer Portal for your reference. We use the information on these report to (try to) keep up with your renewal dates and send our own reminders and follow up notices.

                            If you’ve recently received a Maintenance Renewal or OEM Upgrade notice from Carlson Software, you can follow this link to Request a Custom Proposal from That CAD Girl. Sending us that report helps us help you, so we sometimes offer additional discounts when you send us your report!
