Dassault Systèmes announces 3DExperience Solidworks offers for makers and students

All virtual 3DExperience World 2021 was attended by more than 35,000 attendees this week. Although it was different than in-person experience, the event offered equally informative keynote sessions, free certification exams, stories from Solidworks customers using 3DExperience Works portfolio of tools, and much more. Going along with the event’s theme ‘The Freedom to Create,’ Dassault Systèmes announced two offers: 3DExperience Solidworks for Makers and 3DExperience Solidworks for Students. The company says that these applications will enable makers and students to work in a powerful digital environment from anywhere, thanks to cloud-based access.

Solidworks has been offering Education edition for classroom or laboratory instructional educational purposes. Commercial and institutional use is not permitted. This may change with the new offerings.

“From products to platform, from connections to relationships … 3DExperience Solidworks transforms how students and makers learn, collaborate and innovate,” said Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, Solidworks, Dassault Systèmes. “Students can use the right tools early on to develop the skills sought after by industry and thrive in the workplace.  Makers can be part of a community that shares their passion for making products and is ready to help with its expertise and desire to collaborate.
