Solidworks for Makers (second version for students) just announced

This feels like a repeat:


And I would once again like to let people know that as a US or Canadian active duty member or veteran, you can get it for $20US ($40CAD) per year. It is a full install (not a cloud based program) of the educational version for non-commercial use. I am on my 6th or 7th year now.


And anyone, anywhere in the world, veteran or not, can get the same version for $40/year by signing up to EEA.

Also it looks like the titular edition will cost $9.99/month or $99/year and will only be available in the second half of 2021. It comes with a “Professional” edition of Solidworks.

I’d go for the $40 EEA version instead. It’s cheaper and comes with the higher-tier “Premium” version of Solidworks.
