RS Components (RS) expanded the DesignSpark Mechanical offering with two new optional premium modules that significantly extend its functionality.
The first module is the DesignSpark Mechanical Exchange that adds advanced import/export capabilities and enables the import, modification and export of industry-standard STEP and IGES file formats, allowing full exchange of design data with CAD tools such as SolidWorks, Catia, ProEngineer and AutoCAD.
The second module is DesignSpark Mechanical Drawing, which allows the changing of designs, as well as the ability to create and modify geometry from within drawing views. It enables the creation of detailed dimensioned drawings allowing designers to move beyond concept development and the 3D printing of prototypes and on to final manufacturing. The modules were developed in conjunction with SpaceClaim.
