Alibre has both options. You might want to choose a subscription if you need intermittent access to design software, or if you value the least expensive up-front cost. You might want to choose a lifetime license if you value owning the software and want to ensure no further costs are required in the future, except for optional update plans if you choose to buy them. You would also choose a lifetime license if you need specific license types, like Offline licenses or Local-Network licenses.
