    Fusion 360 can be run "offline" for up to 6 months at a time.

    And Fusion 360 allows you to export files to your hard drive if you want a local copy.

    I have both. I make money with both. I use BobCAD in Solidworks because I know both. But if it is a business startup you just can not beat Fusion. It is an amazing value. The only drawback is it is subscription based. BobCAD is a VERY capable CNC program (that uses ModuleWorks) but is not an intuitive design package.

    IMO, "subscription based" is where everyone (or at least many) are heading. I spoke with a number of (non-Autodesk ) CAD and/or CAM software companies at IMTS this year -- most admitted to "hoping" that Autodesk fails miserably in the long run with Fusion360, but most also admitted to working on alternate business models if Autodesk continues to grab market share (with Fusion360).

    Subscription and/or cloud-based storage is likely the future, regardless of how many of us like, or dislike it.
