I am a student looking to manufacture a product but unsure of which software to use.
Can I use my Solidworks Academic software to give CAD drawings to a manufacturer for production? Is there some special deal with Solidworks where you cannot profit from using their software without a certain license? How about Rhino?
Solidworks claims that it is “not suitable for commercial use”. Why is that? Rhino claims that its educational software is exactly the same.
Either way, I need to get a relatively simple CAD file to a manufacturer and I don’t want to violate any laws. Is using the wrong license of Solidworks illegal?
thank you for our help,
