ZW3D will be used for teaching and training students who study material technology and CAD CAM product design.
ZWSOFT constantly strives to help enrich students’ education, whether through donating licenses to schools like Riga Technical University, or through the new ZW3D student edition, which is available to all qualified students. With these programs, ZWSOFT hopes to help students learn and gain an understanding of CAD CAM software, which will prepare them for the future.

ZWSOFT’s Latvian Partner, ZWCAD Baltic Distributor Centre, facilitated this donation, and is providing support to the university.
