 What People Are Saying About 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers

  1. SOLIDWORKS is my go-to for software when designing and creating, but as a maker the price tag has notoriously been way out of my price range. I’ve been begging SOLIDWORKS to make a version that is more affordable. And I am so excited to be telling you that, as a maker, SOLIDWORKS has answered our prayers!
  2. I am astonished that [ 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS] is being offered, along with xDesign and xShape, for about the same price as a streaming service! This makes me so excited because I can’t wait for people to take advantage of this offer and start following along with all the fun.
