The watermark ‘SOLIDWORKS Educational License – Instructional Use Only’ appears on a printed SOLIDWORKS drawing that references a file created using educational license, or using a template from an educational installation. In the design tree of such 3D models, beside file name, we see the icon that looks like a graduation hat.
As stated in the watermark, SOLIDWORKS educational licenses are to be used for teaching only and not for commercial purpose. However, mix-ups happen and are usually detected after a drawing is printed.
When a file from educational version is open in SOLIDWORKS, a warning comes up:
Identifying such file visually or by opening assembly components can be difficult in large assemblies. SOLIDWORKS knowledge base solution S-040508 includes a macro that detects files created in educational version of SOLIDWORKS.
When a file from educational version is identified, the options for removing watermark include recreating the file or saving it in a different file format. For example, an assembly can be saved as a part file; an assembly or a part file can be exported to a neutral file format. This gets rid of the watermark, but also gets rid of the model design history.
Business-critical cases should be discussed with SOLIDWORKS VARs.
