Is the software web based?

Is there a Trial Version?

How do I cancel my subscription after my 30 day free trial?

Email sales@testfit.io

Will I get access to the most updated version?

Every update to the software will need to be downloaded and installed from our licensing website. See our version history.  

Why does TestFit close immediately after it launches?

Usually this kind of behavior is due to an invalid ".autosave.rsd" in this directory: C:\ProgramData\testfit. Delete it from your computer. Hopefully, TestFit will launch successfully after that file is gone.

What are the saving options?

TestFit can be saved as: .pdf, .csv, .dxf, sketchup, .glTF, & .rsd (TestFit file)

Note for iOS users: File Save -> save as -> filename.pdf, filename.rsd, filename.csv, etc. Your computer will only read the file if you have an application or software to read that file type.
