itopia Labs delivers learning experiences from SolidWorks, an industry-standard solid modelling computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering (CAD / CAE) utility. Labs provides the latest generally-available major version of SolidWorks, with incremental updates being applied as they are released.
What is SolidWorks?
While SolidWorks is feature-rich and enables the creation of almost any shape imaginable -- with a focus on engineering design. For more organic design requirements, a sculpting program like Blender (offered in Labs) is a better fit.
itopia Labs does not provide licensing for SolidWorks. Labs administrators must provide their own licensing information when configuring SolidWorks for a Class.
If your school district doesn't already have SolidWorks educational licenses, be sure to check-out their student pricing on this webpage.
NOTE: In order to use SolidWorks in itopia Labs, Labs must be able to communicate with your SolidWorks License Server. Please contact your itopia representative or the itopia Helpdesk for additional information on this requirement.
