DesignWorkshop Lite 1.7.1 is now available for free downloading here at the Artifice web site.
This updated version provides significantly improved rendering and memory performance with models opened from the 3DMF format, compared to the 1.7 release version of DesignWorkshop and DesignWorkshop Lite. Now models saved in 3DMF and reopened will be just as fast as models viewed in Lights and Textures directly from the DesignWorkshop Standard format.
The professional version of DesignWorkshop will also be updated soon. Until then, for the best possible performance with 3DMF models, we recommend using DesignWorkshop Lite 1.7.1. And after all, it is free!
