How to obtain a Caldera demo license?

Caldera solutions are eligible for free trials, so you can see for yourself how our products can help you maximize your productivity.

This article will guide you through the process of requesting a demo license for CalderaRIP or Prime Center. Before requesting a demo license, we recommend that you review the installation requirements for our products at once:

Computer requirements Minimum Requirements
Device compatibility (printers, cutters, etc.) Supported peripherals
Operation System (OS) requirements OS Compatibilities


If you don't have a compatible OS, you can use any of these open-source operating systems:

Ubuntu Linux


Debian Linux




An Internet connection is required to get a demo license. If your workstation does not have Internet access, or you do not wish to register yet, please contact our sales team directly.

They can also guide you in case you want, for example, to test CalderaRIP through a virtual machine.
