Licensing model

Both Woodwork for Inventor and Woodwork for Inventor with CAM licensing model is a Permanent license plus Maintenance plan. Many users find this licensing model convenient because it is a one-time investment into the license itself and a small cost for the Maintenance plan every year. And even if you discontinue Maintenance plan payments, you get to use the last version of the software, that was available during Maintenance plan validation time. 

Why should you purchase a Maintenance plan in the first place? There are two main reasons:

  1. New version every year. All holders of a Maintenance plan receive a new version of Woodwork for Inventor every year.
  2. Home user license. Additional license for your laptop, home computer or whatever another device.

We do not offer subscriptions.

Woodwork for Inventor prices

Why we do not publish Woodwork for Inventor prices? We know it is annoying when you have to contact someone to know the price of the software. But the reason for that is quite simple. Woodwork for Inventor pricing depends on the geographical location of the customer and is divided into three pricing zones. There are two types of products with maintenance plans. Add volume or other discounts, partner network, training and you’ll see it’s basically impossible to name what would be your price. Therefore, we ask to get in touch with our resellers or us in order to get the information that you need.
