Some where it was suggested to just enrol n a school course and consider the tuition as your subscription cost some community colleges offer pretty good rates if you are still working you may get tuition from employer . You can save files to almost any format so you can save them on windows you may not be able to change them but if you really wanted to you could create drawin files in 2 d and save those in case you go to a different program you could at least make prints the nice thing is you can save them as 3 d print files too . I think you can still attend classes even in retirement im sure there is some one here who has done file saving and conversion If you decide to change programs mid stream you can make the changes as your first project at one point I switched from solid works to inventor and Ijust converted files to inventor in some cases I have just saved as a drawing then recreated from the drawing to new format tedious but it did work in fact I just discovered some of these but I’ll not reuse them as project is done snd gone. Do make a note file on what you are dong and how other wise you can get lost . It kinda lik starting over for me now as it’s been years since I retired however it’s like riding a bike you may wobble around but yo don’t realy forget like a black out . I’m finding icons for different things than I was used to many have a lot more choices and easier ways to do things . I have not done fusion 360 yet but it’s a lot like inventor from the test version however the basics of 3 d modeling are still there so all is not lost I YHINK .
