In the past month Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS has released 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers. A suite of programs (apps) for the non-commercial Makers, hobbies and home renovators who want professional tools for their own personal projects!
Anyone who uses SOLIDWORKS (and other professional CAD programs) knows the benefits of accessing these tools when doing personal projects. Like all my work projects I never start my home projects until I have it modeled up in SOLIDWORKS!
But not everyone has the ability to be able to simply access SOLIDWORKS, especially not at a low cost ….. until now!
Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS recognised that, and has now released 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers at a cost of $99.00USD (+tax) per year. What do you get for that ….. one might say, more than you get with your commercial license! Because not only do you get SOLIDWORKS Professional – (SOLIDWORKS Connected via the 3DEXERIENCE platform with PDM cloud storage) you also get SOLIDWORKS Visualize (again via the platform), 3D Creator (xDesign, and 3D Sculptor (xShape)
So there must be a catch … right!
Yes, a couple of very minor ones! 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers is meant for personal projects and therefore, non-commercial use. But DS SOLIDWORKS does allow you to sell items and make for a profit up to (and not exceeding) $2,000USD a year.
The one other, is that, because there is an install of 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS required on your computer, you cannot have it on the same computer, as one that has the latest version of SOLIDWORKS (2021) on it!
The one last issue, is that, currently it is only available for the following countries: Algeria, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Morocco, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. With more countries to be added soon.
So it’s a great deal …. right ….. but let me sweeten the pot even more.
Because I know people … 🙂 let me make that $99 dollar deal even better. Lets say I can get you 20% off that cost … Yes …. you read that right …. lets make that $99USD …. $79.20USD (+tax)
