Hi, does anybody know what has happened to Roymech, i'm getting 'account suspended'.....any news???

RE: Roymech

"Account suspended" means that the owners of the website stopped paying the hosting service.

RE: Roymech

Ian Lawton,

Roy Beardmore has passed away. The site remained up for a while, but I guess he is not paying for the service any more.


RE: Roymech

Its ashame Roymech has disappeared, i have used it for years. I am building a website like roymech putting all my engineering knowledge onto the internet, i will post a link once its available.



RE: Roymech

I have a copy of the roymech site on my website for my own personal use, it has errors displaying the pages currently which i am sorting out. I copied it as the site was unavailable on a regularly. Not sure if this should be published on the forum.


RE: Roymech

Roymech is probably still subject to copyright. For a while CDs were available for sale of the entire site for personal use.

That said, it might be a nice gesture to contact the family before putting it up.

Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
