DesignSpark Mechanical is a 3D modeling software reported to be easy to use so that all engineers will be able to create and share models. Designs can be linked directly to RS/Allied off-the-shelf components for automatic bill of materials generation, part numbers, and costs for included components. DesignSpark Mechanical can export to DXF, SketchUp, ECAD, OBJ, STEP, and STL formats. Since the software is free, designs can be shared in native electronic form for providing 3D models to your customers and sharing with other engineers and management involved with the project. Designs can be sent directly to rapid prototyping/3D printer devices for quick prototyping.
