If you are a full-time student I believe the SW EDU version is $249. I believe it is "time-bombed" to run for 18 months.

Here's my latest SW project, a flag bracket for the Tiger 1050. I made it on black ABS on a Stratasys FDM machine.

Thanks for the link Oaklandstrom! I live in N. Illinois and manufacturing jobs are on the rise. I would love to do both CAD and CNC. Being able to do both well should make me a decent asset to a company. That solidworks bracket is awesome! I can't imagine how long it would take to draw that up by hand. I went on a tour Saturday to Scot Forge in Spring Grove, Illinois. The forging and CNC work they do is on a massive scale and was amazing to see.
