So you’re ready to start using SolidWorks, but you haven’t quite decided if you’re going to sell your left or right kidney to buy your own copy. Not to worry, SolidWorks now offers a free trial for new users. In the past, the free trial process was handled by the resellers and generally more difficult to get your hands on, but now, all you have to do is fill out the form on the page listed below and SolidWorks will send you a DVD. I’m not exactly sure on the length of the trial, but it should be something between 30 and 60 days.

SolidWorks also offers a separate trial for students, which lasts 60 days and can be found at the link below:

    Hi, What are the differences between the student edition and the real version?

      The student version files are watermarked and it is a year behind the commercial version. Student 2012-2013, for example, is based on SolidWorks 2012, otherwise there should be no differences between the two.
