Is S3D still actually being developed?

Thu Jul 14, 2016 12:04 pm

Looking at the last "update", it appears that, with the exception of added printer support, none of the "Feature Requests" were implemented.
Simplify3d posted a hiring position on September 14, 2015. Does anyone know if anyone was hired, or even if features are being added or improved? I am regretting paying $150 on software that is not actively being developed. I am having to use the other FREE slicers more and more and it's really disconcerting.

Hi jeevesme,

+1

good question! I want to know this as well!
Not only I want to know if S3D is still under development and if features are added or planned to be added.
Furthermore I want to know if the S3D team watches this forum frequently and gives some help on issues 'normal' user could not solve?

They literally just released an update a few weeks ago which had about 20 new changes and a bunch of improvements and bug fixes for many of the issues on this forum (https://www.simplify3d.com/software/release-notes/). If that's not active development, I don't know what is...

And as has been said many times, they have multiple reading and reviewing this forum every single day (viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5393). They have said that many times and every time I email them about something on here, they already know about it and probably read it before I did. If you don't believe me, send them an email and ask them yourselves (https://www.simplify3d.com/contact-us/).

Looks like development to me. You want them to start going to the business model you see in major CAD/CAM software? I have Solidworks, where they ignore user feedback AND charge $1500 a year for updates!

Because this is a USER forum. It's a place for users to talk and exchange info. If you want to talk directly to their staff, then just choose the contact option on their site: https://www.simplify3d.com/contact-us/

@CompoundCarl:

thanks for reply. As you said in one of your previous posts:
...they have multiple reading and reviewing this forum every single day...
So they have multiple readings every single day but don't react in any manner?
If it is a USER forum as you said, why they have multiple readings every day?

They track feature requests and bug reports here, so I'm not surprised they monitor it quite closely
