DesignSpark Mechanical add-on modules


 DesignSpark Mechanical software will always be free of charge, with ongoing support and new versions introduced. We are working with our users to understand what they want that would help them take their designs from concept to production faster.

As a result, we have created two optional premium modules that will give those users the advanced capability they require, plus a bundle for those who want both.

DesignSpark Mechanical Exchange (852-3012)

DesignSpark Mechanical Drawing (852-3015)

DesignSpark Exchange and Mechanical Add-On Bundle (852-3019)


DS Mechanical Exchange

Will the drawing add-on include the missing mirror tools?
A loft tool would also be nice to have.

How come that the price in Great Britain
is much ceaper than the price in Germany ?
The calculated rate from both prices is about 1,7
as the real exchange rate (British Pound to Euro) is about 1,17.
When I log in I can only get to the German offer.
Is that geoblocking or does it come from simple typing error?
