Found this little tidbit on Carbide3D today. But it appears that Solidworks is now trying to compete with Autodesk’s Fusion 360.
Was wondering when this was going to happen but it seems as if you no longer need to have a .edu address to be able to use Solidworks. They said it still has the .edu features going on but my assumption is a lot of us are way more familiar with Solidworks. Could be interesting.
