Perpetual or Term License?
The decision to choose a Perpetual (owned) or Term (rental) licence of SOLIDWORKS is easier to make if one of the questions below applies to your current situation...

- Do your workloads or needs change dramatically from project to project?
- Do you have a fluctuating workforce with turnover and temporary employees or interns?
- Do your software budgets change drastically from year-to-year?
