Purchase and Manage CAD Plugins

Pollination plugins are required if you would like to use Pollination from within your CAD/BIM software. If you plan to use Pollination across more than one software package, you will need to purchase and download multiple installation files. For plugin pricing, please visit our pricing page.

Purchasing the CAD Plugins

You have the option to buy the CAD plugins under your personal account or under an organization account. Read Step 1 carefully to understand the differences between the two.

Step 1

If you are buying the CAD plugins for an organization, go to the organization page and click on the Subscription tab. Then scroll down until you find the card for the CAD plugins. You can find the organizations one the left side of the screen on the home page.
Organization account Subscription tab
If you are buying the CAD plugins under your personal account, click on your profile page, and select Your Subscriptions. Then scroll down until you find the card for the CAD plugins.
Personal account Subscription tab
For sharing the CAD licenses among several Pollination users you must buy the licenses under an organization account. A license that is purchased under a personal account can only be used by the account owner.
You can purchase the licenses for Rhino and Revit plugins separately or buy a bundled license at a lower price.

If you have a coupon code, add it to your cart by clicking on + Add discount before completing your purchase.
Congratulations! Once payment is processed you should see the license under your account. If the screen doesn't automatically update, hit the refresh button on your screen to access Manage and Payment tabs for your subscriptions.
Once you complete payment, you will receive an email from Ladybug Tools (via Paddle.com) with a link to your invoice/receipt. Please check your spam and junk folders after making your payment if you don't see an email confirmation in your inbox.

Managing the CAD Plugins

Once you buy the CAD licenses you can use the license pools to manage the licenses. There are 4 tabs
CAD Plugins Cards
  • Subscription: Under Subscription, you can see the information about you current subscription.
  • Manage: Under Manage, you can update or cancel your current subscription. You can cancel your subscription at any point of time but we will not be able to provide prorated refunds for your cancellation. See below for more information.
  • PayPal/Card: The name of this tab will be different based on your method of payment. In both cases you can use this tab to update your payment method.
  • Payments: Under Payment, you can access both upcoming payments and past payments with links to a copy of your invoice.
Please review our cancellation policy in our Terms of Service as we are unable to provide prorated refunds for subscription changes that occur earlier than the renewal date. All changes are effective immediately, so if you cancel or update the number of licenses you have, please do so as close to your renewal date as possible.
Updating the number of licenses also removes any coupons that might be applied to your original subscription.

Sharing Floating Licenses

For organizations, you can share the license between the organization members. See this page for more information.
