SOLIDWORKS Term License
The SOLIDWORKS Term License is a for companies with a short term design requirement or new start-ups who need to preserve cash during the early stages of developing the business. But remember, you are effectively renting the license – You do not own it, so you need to consider how you will access design data after the term has expired.
SOLIDWORKS Perpetual license
The SOLIDWORKS Perpetual license is for companies developing new products in a longer term. A perpetual SOLIDWORKS license is more cost effective over 3 years and more affordable to maintain from that point. Most important is that you own the license. If you have a perpetual SOLIDWORKS license plus a subscription, you will always have the latest and greatest software release available.
