Re: Is Simplify3D worth the cost?

A year and a half ago, I would be voting for YES, buy S3d. However, Cura has caught up to the point that there is probably only one feature in S3d that is not in Cura. (Can't even recall it right now...it's been too long since I've used S3d.) Sure, I like the tabbed interface of S3d, but that is tin...

Has the development of Simplify3D stopped? There's been no updates in about 3 years
There have been no announcements or developments lately to contradict that presumption.

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

I bet the problem is that none of us who purchased S3D before 2020 are paying customers. We once were paying customers on the day we purchased it, but we no longer are paying customers. The model of "free software updates for life" is nice for marketing for a new software company, but--especially in...

Re: Is Simplify3D worth the cost?

@parallyze, I looked into it again, and Prusa Slicer still does not have coast. The screenshot you showed does not do the same thing. The request for it is being +1'd regularly: https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/issues/246 (In that link, somebody shows a screengrab of the same setting you poste...

Re: Is Simplify3D worth the cost?

I will take that correction, and give it a try again. In an instance like this, it's nice to be wrong...probably outdated info on my part. I tried Prusa slicer over a year ago, and could not find coast or wipe, so I searched...IIRC, I found a forum thread where Prusa themselves said they would not a...

I would suggest if this is your first slicer to go with Prusa slicer and learn that as it will continue to evolve unlike S3D
Just be aware that Prusa slicer does not include coast or wipe, so it is only suitable for controllers with pressure advance.

Re: RE: We're hiring!

It actually looks like he created a whole new post...presumably to mock the release of 5.0...rather than replied to a post on the front page. (There is no "we are hiring" as the first post in this thread!)

Re: Any chance of a version 4.2 release??

Even if they switch to target the farms with monthly rates, they've managed this so poorly--both in the communication department and abandoning 4.1--that their reputation has taken such a hit that they might struggle to get any trust (or cash).

Re: Giving Up on S3D

I logged in for the first time in six weeks, and there are posts in only 4 or 5 threads... Most people don't announce their departure. Cura is fine, with an interface that isn't as good. It has some nice features, and misses one or two. Prusa doesn't have coast & wipe because their printer has press...

Are you using OctoPrint, or any other intermediary hardware?
