Using a SOLIDWORKS Product in Offline Mode

When you use a SOLIDWORKS product with an online license, you can specify offline mode when you do not have an internet connection.

To work in offline mode:

  • In the SOLIDWORKS title bar, right-click Login and click Take License Offline.

You can use the SOLIDWORKS product for 30 days without reconnecting to a SOLIDWORKS website. After 30 days, you must click Take License Offline again to continue working in offline mode.

When you use an online license in offline mode on one machine, you cannot use that license on other machines.
