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.
Strolling along a sandy beach or through a sun-dappled forest are two of life’s simple pleasures that many of us take for granted. For those confined to wheelchairs, spending time in nature — or even traversing a particularly uneven street — can be difficult or impossible to accomplish, especially without assistance.

1998 was a great year for technology. Apple launched the iMac, the first MP3 player hit store shelves, Game Boy was offered in color and a little-known search engine named Google hit the World Wide Web. Luckily gas was $1.06 per gallon in the United States, so at least you had a chance at affording some of these amazing new devices.
When SOLIDWORKS® 95 was introduced it revolutionized the way engineers and designers created products. One of the company’s original missions was to put easy-to-use, but powerful 3D CAD on every engineer’s desktop. At the time the idea was radical; 3D CAD was expensive and required specialized hardware. SOLIDWORKS cut the price from $40,000 to $4,000 and created a powerful program capable of running on a Windows® operating system. Fast forward a few decades and we know the approach was a great success.
