A Shapr3D EDU license is a free version of Shapr3D—available in certain countries—that provides you access to all Shapr3D Pro features. If you’re a student, teacher, or faculty member, you can apply for a free, 1-year educational (EDU) license. The EDU license is available for renewal as long as you're still part of an educational institution.
To get a Shapr3D EDU license for one year for free, you must have no existing subscriptions or trials. If you've already started a Pro trial, cancel the Pro subscription before you send the request.
Note: Unlike Shapr3D Pro, a Shapr3D EDU license doesn’t offer priority technical support. To learn more about the different subscriptions, visit shapr3d.com/pricing.
To apply for the EDU license, follow these steps:
- Go to shapr3d.com/pricing.
- Select Free for Students and Educators.
- Log in with your Shapr3D account.
- Fill out all fields on the Request EDU license form.
- Select Send Request.
Note: It typically takes about three business days to evaluate requests. If your request is approved or any information is missing, you’ll be contacted via email.
