Requesting Password and License Strings

Prior to downloading you should contact Artwork and request the following information:

In order for us to generate license strings you need to provide us your machine's ID. This is best done by downloading the lmtools.zip utility and running it on your machine. Use the System Settings tab and copy the Ethernet Address that it displays. See below:

Example Email

Dear Hagai,

I would like to evaluate your Gerber Union program. Please send me the FTP login, the install password and temporary key strings for my machine.

I got my ethernet physical address by using the LMTOOLS utility provided above


ethernet address = 00560abE72

Reason for Evaluation


I intend to use the program to covert Gerber data to outline data in DXF, Gerber, GDSII and EGS format.

Thanks much,

John Boy

Problems Accessing our FTP Site?

Artwork's FTP site requires a login and password to gain access. This information will be provided to you with the license strings.

If after clicking on the link you get a This Page Cannot be Displayed error, this may be due to Internet Explorer's problems accessing password protected FTP servers. In that case, please review the possible fixes on our support page.

It is possible that your company's firewall may be blocking ftp access. The firewall does not always provide an error message. It may just appear that the ftp server is not accessible. Please check with your IT administrator.
