istory Installation and Registration of Program Package


Universal Mechanism 7.0

Download Universal Mechanism (January 20, 2017) and install the program on your hard disk.

You can use Universal Mechanism for one month after installation for education purposes only. Free 6-month academic license is provided for (PhD) students on request. To obtain a student UM license generate a request-file in UM Input or UM Simulation programs (Help/About/Registration) and send it to Do not forget to attach a scan copy of your student ID to your request. The license file will be sent you in reply.

This installation of Universal Mechanism includes all available UM modules and user,s manuals.

First of all, we recommend you to have a look at several examples of mechanical systems:
- run UM Simulation;
- load models from Samples directory and run it.

After that use manuals from the Getting started series to get quick start in using Universal Mechanism.
