SolidWorks in general & Partner Program

Question asked by Benedikt Schulz on Jun 24, 2014


I am working on a business plan for an add-on supplier start-up.

I am very new to this forum and have actually very very limited understanding of SolidWorks. Therefore please excuse me if I might ask "stupid" questions.


- What are the benefits of being a Research Associate over being an independent solution supplier/add-on? (with regards to marketing, sales, distribution efforts, pricing etc.)

- Where can I find a list of all add-ons available?

- How can I find potential competitors to my colleagues' add-on?

- How can I market an idea?

- Where can I find benchmark pricings?

- How is revenue distributed (approx. margins for each in the chain)?


Thank you for your support.
