Downloaded and installed it yesterday, i had a issue with the license (i had to enter an email in a grayed form control).

The trick is to install the PCB software and do the registration through there, then it works.

I didn't spot big difference either

I find it rather stable, very little issues, if I compare to f.e. 123D that was a total nightmare. ...

Sometimes it's not really doing wat it's supposed to, f.e. it will not cut, but mostly I can trick it when moving a face a little and try again..

overall I like it a lot ..

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
