Wide industry acceptance of DesignSpark Mechanical

21 December 2016

RS Components announced that user activations of DesignSpark Mechanical (DSM), the company’s free-for-download fully featured 3D modelling and design tool, has now reached a cumulative total of 200,000.

In addition to reaching this major milestone, the volume of total activations of the software is continuing to increase at a rate of between four and five percent per month.

Developed in conjunction with SpaceClaim, DesignSpark Mechanical is a key tool in the RS DesignSpark initiative to provide engineers with resources that enable them to rapidly develop prototypes in the product concept design stage. Originally launched in late 2013 with a second version offering new functionality introduced the following year, the software is also available with extended professional engineering options, which turns it into a highly capable and very low cost 3D CAD solution.

“DesignSpark Mechanical is a powerful 3D solid modelling tool that has rapidly been accepted by professionals, students and the maker communities, who have found enormous utility in the tool, enabling them to quickly develop 3D prototypes and bring their concepts and products to market in a very fast time,” said Mike Brojak, Head of DesignSpark Customer Solutions at RS. “Meeting this milestone is another hallmark of success for our DesignSpark initiative, which empowers engineers and designers in the maker community and from the smallest start-up to large organisations.”
