What is an Easel Pro Product Key?
An Easel Pro Product Key is a limited license (usually 1-year or 3-year) to the Easel Pro software that comes as a part of a bundle with a machine purchase (1000mm X-Carve or X-Carve Pro) or from a partnered third-party site.
The Easel Pro product key can be located on your receipt for your order or in a confirmation/activation email that is sent after the order is placed or shipped (depending on the product).
To find your receipt via inventables.com:
- First, log in to your account and click on the person icon in the top right of the screen, then 'Order History'.
- Once you find your order for your CNC Machine, you can open that order and/or click 'View Receipt'. On that page, there should be an XXXX-XXXX code to activate your Easel Pro membership.
Otherwise, you can follow the link to 'Activate Now' via the direct post-purchase email to take you right to Easel.
How do I activate an Easel Pro membership from an Easel Pro Product Key?
If you received an Easel Pro license via product key through a machine bundle purchase from the Inventables website or from a third party, the membership may not activate until you enter your product key in the Account section of the main Easel menu, by clicking on the button labeled "Activate your Product Key" above the subscription options (see below).
When manually activating a product key, you are beginning a subscription. This means it will create a recurring charge after the expiration of the key. Easel will still ask for a payment method so that it can renew and continue your access to Easel Pro. After product keys expire, the subscription will continue as an annual membership. So long as the product key is entered, your card will not be charged until your subscription is set to renew.
- You can prevent the renewal simply by canceling the subscription after the key has been activated. You will still have access to Easel Pro for the duration of the time left on the key when it is canceled.
- Easel Pro product keys from an X-Carve or X-Carve Pro purchase will automatically activate 45 days after purchasing the machine if it is not manually activated.
In summary: Easel Pro Product Keys are activated after they are entered into the Account section of the main Easel menu along with payment information.
