Pixologic only provides upgrades for the KeyShot for ZBrush version.  For all other versions (including floating licenses), please contact Luxion's support directly at

The ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge does not need upgrading at this time.

KeyShot 8 Upgrade Eligibility

Pixologic follows the same promotions with KeyShot for ZBrush that Luxion offers for KeyShot.  

  • If you have KeyShot for ZBrush (the original release, which was KeyShot 5), it is no longer possible to upgrade to a newer version.  If you wish to access new features, you will need to purchase a new license of KeyShot for ZBrush from the Pixologic Store.
  • If you purchased or upgraded to KeyShot 7 (either HD or Pro) for ZBrush on or after 8/15/18, you receive a free upgrade to KS8.  In this case your serial number has been automatically enabled for use with KeyShot 8.  You should be able to update your KeyShot version through the software or by downloading a new installer from
  • If your most recent KeyShot purchase was before 8/15/18 you can upgrade to KeyShot 8 according to the schedule below:

Paid Upgrades:

KeyShot 6 HD or 7 HD to KeyShot 8 HD: $80 USD

KeyShot 6 or KeyShot 7 HD to KeyShot 8 Pro: $200 USD

KeyShot 7 Pro to KeyShot 8 Pro: $160 USD

KeyShot 8 HD to KeyShot 8 Pro:  $200 USD

For all upgrade types, please go to and log in using your Support credentials.  Next to your KeyShot for ZBrush license you will see buttons for your upgrade options.  Simply choose the option that you wish and proceed from there.

All paid upgrades will give you an upgrade serial number.  This is a special type of serial number that will not function without the one from your original purchase.  Please keep your original serial number as well as the new one!
