Customer Reviews

  1. Great product

    by on

    I used Solidworks in the past as an engineer and now I can teach it to my boys. So far it's great. The installation was a little unexpected on Windows 10 however due to issues with the local SQL server. I turned off what was needed in the Task Manager according to the warning message. After the 2nd warning message I restarted the computer and the program ended up being installed even though it said it was only around 60% complete. I had the same results trying the installation on 2 different computers.

  2. ottimo per studenti e docenti
