Cool. Too bad it’s Windows only.

Good news there. I am happy with F360 workflow but good to know there is another hobby/maker/home shop option! Wasn’t able to find the detailed license on a cursory search, but would be curious on the maker restrictions, eg similar to F360s income cap restriction?

Seems to be more in line with their existing .edu watermark and inability to open files on commercial versions of the software.

Woah… Thanks for the link! I like the CAD side of solidworks much more than f360, but I find the CAM much less intuitive/powerful.

awesome! I have more experience with solidworks
