      Can you open student version files in a commercial version and also the ohter way around? And will you then still experience the limitations of the student version (watermark..)?


      thank you!

          Though you can open but you'll get watermarks and there will be a hat kind of icon on the files which differentiates student version files from commercial ones.

            There should be no problem doing that.  A Solidworks file is a Solidworks file.

            As long as it is a .sldprt, .sldasm, slddrw it should be fine.

            As long as the releases are the same.  Meaning you can't open a 2010 file up

            in 2009, but you can open a 2009 file up in 2010


            I have a more watered down version of Solidworks at home vs work and I am able to

            open the same files up in both going back and forth.
