2 min. readlast update: 02.26.2024

This information is valid for

  • Naviate for Civil 3D 2023.1
  • Naviate for Revit 2022.1.1 and forward

If you have a multi license you can borrow that license to use it offline. 

Note that for Naviate for Civil 3D and Revit you need to start the program once after you have borrowed the license before you remove the computer from the network to activate the borrowed license. 

Start by logging into My Symetri and navigate to My Licenses. 



Click on the 3 dots on the right side and choose "Borrow"


Pick the date for how long you want to borrow the license. Note: There could be restrictions set by the Admin if you are allowed to borrow and how many days you are allowed to borrow.


Click borrow and you will get this information dialogue in addition to a message in the bottom left corner saying that the license is successfully borrowed. Note: You have to start your program one time before you loose the network connection to activate your borrowed license. 



To return a license do the same process as above


Click Return and this confirmation dialouge will appear. When clicking that Return button a confirmation is presented down in the left corner of the screen.
