Download it from the Files panel in your Insight-live.com account (it costs $15 for 6 months access). Current downloads only include the program file, starter recipe, materials, overrides data is built in. It functions as level 2, without need of a key. No features have been removed. It will never expire.
No. Insight-live has a much broader scope and is far superior, it is the future (it still does the chemistry but is much more about data and access-from-anywhere). We still support desktop Insight for users who need to convert data for import to insight-live or who must work off-line.
There is a direct relationship between the way ceramic glazes fire and their chemistry. Insight is a calculation tool anyone can use to learn and harness the power of glaze chemistry.
Without glaze chemistry you'll never really have control and you could be a slave to your suppliers or the trafficing in recipes that never work.
A desktop application for Windows, Linux, Macintosh that you download and install.
Insight was first released in 1979 and has been used world wide since. It is an excellent teaching tool for demonstrating the principles of formula/analysis/unity, limit formulas, LOI, and material-oxide relationships.

"Thank you very much for all the efforts you have done in creating such a program! I have never seen a website and database so complete and useful for all the ceramists in the world!"
"The program looks very complete. I wish I would have had it 30 years ago when I was first starting out. But ah yes, there were no PC's as of yet!"
"You have been a great mentor and we swear by that Insight program."
"Thank you. Its awesome!"
"I use a lot of commecial glazes, but am becoming more and more interested in developing my own palette... this has led me to look at the various calculation programs out there."
"Thanks for your help, found the answer. Our test is in, my classmate has bought your program and we used it to find many answers. Thanks."
