v1 and v2: what's the difference



Spring Calculator Professional v2 was a major upgrade released in 2019. Its purpose is to fully utilise the latest in programming technology and security to ensure its longevity and offer features we otherwise would not be able to.


Since its launch we have continually developed SCP v2 by adding features that make the software easier to use and an asset to all design engineers, spring manufacturers and end users. 

If you are using SCP v1 we highly recommend upgrading today.  Although we are still supporting v1 it will eventually be phased out. We will only provide support for licensing issues or anyone using the disc and spiral spring modules until they are added into SCP v2.
