Thread: Emma Chizzit - Solidworks ?
Does anyone use solidworks?
Is it the best for designing curvy shapes for milling?
Why can I only find a price for the academic version?
Don't like this request a quote style of selling, sounds like they plan to screw me until the pips squeak. How much did you pay?
I use Solid Edge which is similar to Solid Works but written by 2 completely different software companys.
Solid Edge cost about £4000 and about £1100 a year for maintenance (updates etc).
The academic licence's are usually far cheaper and should be fine for what you are doing.
Alibre are doing a limited one time offer of their Standard package for $99, should be $999

Just had a look at the offer and only US & Canada.
The Alibre online store accepted my order and took my money and I'm in Australia.
Perhaps they think that Oz is another US state or part of Canada ...
Yes I had a problem to start with as I had the free registered version.
Spoke to Alibe and they told me to remove all cookies and try again and itw worked for me .
Ironically the first time I got directed to a UK reseller and I didn't go further.
later I went back, deleted cookies and got it but the sale on the debit card went to the same UK reseller and was listed at $99
Checked the bank this morning but nothing has come out yet.
Program downloaded and up and running, just need to watch some tutorials now.John S -
3D/2D CAD package. You can download a full version that works for 30 days if you want to try it out.
