Introduction & Restrictions

We have been provided FREE Educational SOLIDWORKS Premium for Makerspaces by Dassault Systemes. This software comes with the following restrictions:

  • This is for noncommercial/hobbyist/educational use
  • We cannot share this information on social media or to the public at large

Technical Information

SOLIDWORKS is only available for the Windows operating system. System requirements are here.

Installation Best Practices

Installation Location:

During the installation, SOLIDWORKS will want to install in C:\....SOLIDWORKS

INSTEAD DEFINE THE INSTALLATION LOCATION AS C:\....SOLIDWORKS 20XX

Indicating the year will make the upgrade process significantly smoother.

Custom File & Template Locations

When making custom templates or file locations, keep them in new folder locations and add them to SOLIDWORKS Using Options > System Options > File Locations. If you do not, they will be wiped on upgrades.

Ensure that your custom locations are backed up via Google Drive, DropBox, etc.
