I'm afraid not. There is a start-up program, where you can get a full licence if you are a new start-up company but it's not really for hobbyists.

 

I believe that some companies licences allow use at home as well, but I get the impression you do not use it for work.

@Budwarek There is no hobby version of full Solid Edge, only the "Free 2D / 3D Viewer".  If you join the Local Motors "Launch Forth" group, you can download a Launch Forth edition of Solid Edge from them legally.

@hawcad @Budwarek @Alex_H  Launch Forth came from Local Motors as the crowd sourcing part of it and as such handles all the organization and planning for a variety of projects but it also appears that they have expanded Launch Forth to do other projects for companies other than just Local Motors.  As a member, you can contribute your expertise in a variety of disciplines towards the project goal.  They have a method of scoring contributions and based on that there is some compensation ifor accepted contributions in the way of prises I believe.  There are a whole array of projects Launch Forth is working on...

@KennyG  I get it right?? If we add to this community, we can use solid edge free. Other people in this community working on some projects, and have some rewards from that.
We will not working on any project, but nobody will not know it. So we will not must do anything, pay anything if we not like to do.
Or is there some problem, some check what are you doing in solid??
