There's an update available for DSM, version 2:


Just had a quick first look and don't see functional difference ... tested the trick to import & unlock STEP files, this still works;

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 ..

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
