Which is Right For You, Perpetual or Term SOLIDWORKS Licenses?

SOLIDWORKS has different licensing options designed to meet the varying needs of customers and users. In the software industry, licensing generally falls into one of two categories; perpetual licenses (i.e. purchase to own, with optional subscription service) and term licenses (i.e. pay as you use, or ‘rent’ the software for a specific period, such as 90 or 360 days). SOLIDWORKS has offerings in both of these categories and customers can use either or both of these options depending on their needs.

Real world test of 3D printed cast for hand fracture

It was January and the streets were covered in thick layers of ice. One chilly morning, while shoveling snow in my front yard, I have managed to successfully fracture a bone in one of my fingers. I could immediately envision the struggles of being bound in plaster for the coming weeks: trying to bathe with my arm covered in plastic bags, the constant itching and the everyday nuisance of getting dressed properly. On my way to the emergency department, I was wondering if it would be possible to get rid of the annoyances of traditional plaster casts by creating a weblike 3D printed cast?
