PostSubject: Free Student Versions of SolidWorks/AutoCAD   Tue Aug 25, 2009 9:51 pm

Hello all,

For those of us who are on a budget and can't afford to buy SolidWorks or AutoCAD, I like to offer these links, available to all students.

SolidWorks, is a sponsor of Battlebots, FIRST, and many other robotic competitions. You can sign up to get their software, free of shipping charges, at the following website, where they will send you 10 free license for a year. Software and license keys included.

General sponsorship website. Click on "Click Here to apply for Team Sponsorship!" to sign up.

AutoCAD, is a bit more tricky. First you must be a student, with a valid .edu email address. Second you must sign up for the program, and then you have to download the software, after which they will email you the key.

Click on what version of AutoCAD you want and follow their "easy" steps.

Hope this helps in your robot building, and now you have no excuse not to create awesomeness.

P.S. Will Bales found the AutoCAD website, so all credit goes to him. He posted the link somewhere, but I thought I'd repost it as a I couldn't find it on the forums.

I'll be totally honest, I didn't have a clue I had found it! I'll take the credit, though!


For Solidworks, If you go to: http://www.solidworks.com/pages/products/edu/student/SDL_welcome.html

and put in the code: D7150BIQ

you can download the Student Design Kit. Usually. It sometimes doesn't work for me, although I already have downloaded it.. so I'm probably just a fluke. when you do it, they send you a serial number via email. If you are downloading a new version, you don't need it. If you need to renew your version, put in that serial number and it will work again! I don't remember exactly how to do that, but I'm pretty sure its via the "modify" option when removing programs.

There's that!
