Dear users

Since the first release of BASEMENT in 2006, the user community and the popularity of the software has been constantly growing. Albeit we never offered official support service, users reported problems and shortcomings by email. This exchange of software and model related information has often resulted in bug fixes and has been a valuable contribution to improve quality. However, new experiences were only moderately or not at all shared among users to this day. Thus we decided to launch a user forum, where users can share their problems with other users. The main objective of the forum is to provide solutions and gain experience. Software bugs can also be addressed of course. The forum is moderated by the development team and thus allows for direct discussion with the experts.   

We warmly welcome you to the user forum of the software BASEMENT
and we look forward to a vivid discussion!

Please register here:

After registration you may subscribe to the announcements to stay up to date about new releases and important changes of the software.

Please notice that as from now any direct user request will be forwarded to the user forum. Thank you for your understanding.

The software development team of BASEMENT
