As of version 2019, solidThinking has introduced units-based licensing similar to Altair’s HyperWorks Units. This licensing model allows companies to rent a pool of units that individual users can check in and out, providing access to any software in the solidThinking suite. Whether you’re using sTUs or HWUs, your team can now gain access to Altair’s entire portfolio of simulation design applications.
solidThinking Units are sold through Altair’s reseller network and can only be accessed through a cloud-based license server. In addition to enabling desktop applications, sTUs will allow access to the cloud to run jobs or launch interactive applications through the browser for a specified number of units.
