Download & Installation

DesignSpark Electrical (DSE) Is Changing.

The current version 1.3 will not be available for download from November 30, 2019 and will be replaced with a new SOLIDWORKS based offer in late January 2020. An exact date will be announced in due course. Existing users of DSE (v1 to v1.3) may continue using the software until version 2.0 is available, after which time you will need to update to version 2.0.

The new DSE v2.0 will continue to be free-of-charge, available to new users & as a required update for existing users of DSE v1 to v1.3.

Any project archives you have created with DSE v1 to v1.3 will be compatible with DSE v2 as well.
