Is there any way to get standard Solidworks with routing?
The pereson that this seat is for has no need for all the other features that come with premium.
A very long time ago, around SolidWorks 2001+ (or something close to that) you could buy Solidworks as a basic seat, and "Add On" upgrades and add-ins. The problem with that was you had a separate annual maintenance fee for EACH upgrade. So people started getting upset at all the extra costs. After that, they started "bundling" stuff together so you would have a complete package, or a basic package. I would agree, it would be nice to have something in between.
I don't believe you can get it separately, but you need to ask your VAR - the are in control of doling out licenses
The VAR has been asked and said it is not possible.
I find it stupid that when our project engineer wants to do pipe routing in SolidWorks we need to pay for an FEA package that will never be used.
Are there any aftermarket packages that do pipe routing well?
if you use floating licenses, you can have some at each level - we have 8 standard and one premium. so one seat at a time can have the "premium" features active. so as long as the rest of your users don't always use the premium stuff you should be able to get by with the addition of just a standard license.
We do have this setup as well (1 premium and 3 pro licences) but this licence is required for a person located off site (in another country) there will not always have access to the internet, so using our licence is just not practical.
If he can connect thru VPN, then he can borrow the licence for a limited time and then return it back.
not related to this thread but...
anyway to get the Piping & Tubing design guide ? (and does it get updated anymore ?)
Looking forward to your reply.
