Why do I need to activate DS Mechanical?



  • Gregory Granville

    I'm sure everyone understands the need to protect paid software from unauthorized use and copying, but the answer really does not address the question when "free" software is involved. I'm sure a lot of people - including myself - don't see the purpose of protecting something from copying that you have decided to give away for the purpose of generating additional parts sales.

    Please clarify. Thank You.

    Maybe free use to you, however activation licences are paid for by RS and the intellectual property of the software belongs to the developers. DSM is a small subset of much larger and extensive software of which the annual licence fee is more than DSM plus it's bundled modules combined. The value proposition of DSM + it's Drawing Sheet and Exchange Module is unrivalled.
