123D beta 9?

hello i just bought the eye mech stream web tutorial. in it they say that they are using the program 123d beta 9 to create the 3d date to create the eyes, my problem is that i can't find this online i found 123d design (which they say isn't as good) i find it very hard to follow instructions if I'm using something different to what I'm being shown on so does any one have a link that actually works to a free downloable version of 123d beta 9  for a mac? 
     any help is great fully recived as i really want to get creating as soon as possible.
        many thanks for your time

    That only seems to be free if your a student and have an educational license which I don't, I'm not having a go at any one but selling classes using outdated systems is a bit of an oversite. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right place, I have 123d design but you cant even open stl files in that. Just gets me down that people cant make a system that works across the board .....

    Hi Jonathan, I found that they gave me a 3 year license with the stanwinstonschool.com url, as for the software being discontinued, we apologize that Autodesk cancelled the beta period for the software. 

    I do however completely understand your problems with 123d design...my first reaction was, where is the pencil!?!?!

    I like freeCAD http://www.freecadweb.org/ and you can follow along with the tutorial very easily as the commands and tools in the part design menu are almost the same.

    Hope this helps

    thanks for the information chris i will give it a shot with the stan winston url.
    i realise this isnt the stan Winston schools fault, i have always maintained this is an incredible resource and i always will i think im just on a downer as i keep getting shut down on projects buy nonconpatable software or the fact its very hard to find some products in the uk, sorry to be a grumpy gus. and thanks for your help
