MWSF: solidThinking to introduce free software at Macworld

solidThinking to provide free software to industrial design, architecture and fine arts college and university students at Macworld Expo.


Leading industrial design/styling software company solidThinking announced yesterday that they will be releasing a free personal-use version of its solidThinking 7.6 CAID (computer-aided industrial design) software to ID (industrial design), architectural and fine arts students who visit solidThinking’s booth (#3320). 

Those enrolled in certified programs at colleges and universities can obtain a certificate at the Macworld solidThinking booth. Valid proof of student status must be presented. The validated certificate can then be used to download the free solidThinking software and run it on the student’s personal computer. 

“Industrial designers globally are adopting solidThinking as their tool of choice, and today’s design students should have the opportunity to use, understand and become fluent in the best available software to expand their creative abilities,” says solidThinking Vice President of Product Strategy and Marketing.

“By making solidThinking available to students for convenient use on their own computers,” says Mazzardo, “we anticipate these students will become even more attractive to employers upon graduation by giving them more time to improve their creativity and develop a portfolio of their creative work.”
