Benefits of Subscription Services

One of the most commonly asked questions we receive is, “What are the benefits of SOLIDWORKS Subscription Services?”

The SOLIDWORKS Subscription Service Program provides you with immediate access to new SOLIDWORKS releases and upgrades via your SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal, as well as live technical support, extensive online resources and enhancement request privileges. As the software becomes more efficient with each version and service pack release, you become more efficient too; helping you stay current and competitive, and improve return on investment!


The SOLIDWORKS Subscription Service Program also provides you with:


SOLIDWORKS Visualize is the fastest and easiest way to create photo-quality images of 3D data.

SOLIDWORKS Professional and Premium users with active subscription receive SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard for free! This standalone Visualize seat can be used by anyone in your company and does not require SOLIDWORKS CAD to be installed on the same machine. This means that 3D modeling and 3D visualization can happen in parallel.
