Student License

A student license for FluidSIM is no longer offered.

FluidSIM 6 enables educational institutions to make their acquired/existing FluidSIM licenses available to their students via the Internet for a limited period of time. For this reason, Festo Didactic has discontinued the distribution of the student licenses.
