Educators are Makers Too with 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS!

The 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers offers the world’s best design tools for hobbyists and personal projects.  If you are an educator, wanting to learn or to make things on your own, then the 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers may be for you.

For classroom instruction and educational institutions, we ask you to contact your value added reseller to find out more about our SOLIDWORKS Education offers for your students.   Through our subscription educational offers, you have access to free SOLIDWORKS tools though your school’s SOLIDWORKS network licenses or academic research licenses.

As an individual educator and maker, you can purchase the 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers for US$99/year.  Currently we are supporting 14  countries – more countries to follow later this year.

You receive:

  • Intuitive cloud-connected CAD modeling tools.  You install SOLIDWORKS – locally on your computer.  Additional apps are accessible through your web browser, from anywhere on any device.
  • The Makers Made in 3D online community that lets you connect with worldwide makers from fab labs, makerspaces, influencers – all ready to share their designs, ideas, and expertise.  There’s no need to start from scratch – connect with other makers and customize shared models.
  • Access an expanded professional ecosystem to rapid prototype your parts.

Use the SOLIDWORKS you know and love – learn about new cloud-based tools xDesign and xShape and new ways of working and sharing information.
