I have just read the excellent article, in MEW No. 262, by Darren Conway on 3D Printing and decided to download the free CAD programme that he used, Designspark Mechanical..

I downloaded this from the Web and it appears to have successfully installed on my computer. However, I have been unable to register to use the programme, as required before use, I keep receiving error messages and despite many attempts to complete and submit the registration form have still not been able to "unlock" the software. I have also been unable to find an email address for Designspark to enable me to contact them for assistance.

Have anyone else had this problem? (I see that there were similar issues with Designspark back in 2014, which were referenced on this forum).

Ken, I registered first, before installing the software, and had no problems. MichaelG, thanks for the link.

It was a long time ago but I think I tried a few times each day and eventually it registered

mine was the 1.0 version

Well worth the effort

A bit of a necrothread bump but I managed to register designspark2 on my win 7 pro 64 system last night

So the server must be up and running again

Had nothing but problems to register in the past

The version registered was DSMv2_32_20150802.1
