  • Hi Semi,

    The download link in your DevDept account. You need to log in: https://www.devdept.com/Account/LogIn


  • trial users dont see link :(

  • Yes, we only do internal Beta. Sorry.

  • Do you have any estimates on the date when the non-beta version will be released?

  • We are regular user of Eyeshot since 2012. We have been using all versions from 5 to 8.

    Why I can't see the download link either?

  • Because your subscription is expiring before the release date. I've just sent it to you via HighTail.

  • Thanks!

  • We had used eyeshot old-version(version 6, 7, 8).

    And, we still use this version and we have some problems.

    (Tessellation, Solid3D booleans, Watertight triangulation, etc...)

    We want to test new-version Eyeshot(9.0). Please add link on my site.
