In another thread somebody posted a ''Way back machine'' link and as far as I can see Simplify3D never stated you would get free updates for life.
I laughed at this post...the guys been using it for 2+ years now and want a refund because its a paid upgrade. Holy crap even if its the same price again to upgrade, it beats 99% of all other software companies in niche markets offering paid upgrades, i have customers who pay $20000 + each year for upgrades. And im very thankful that S3D hasnt made it subscription like other software.
Having said that...I do have negative feedback to this too....S3D simply doesn't update often, no matter how much they bang on about "coming in future releases" a couple of upgrades a year , or less as has been in the past...simply will not cut it if your making it paid upgrades. Especially when the free alternatives are catching up, and in some ways surpassed the benefits S3D offers. In some prints i get much better quality in Cura, and on other better quality in S3D.
I will almost certainly buy the new upgrade, I love the software, and I have got more than its worth of value over the years, but I really hope S3D becomes more agile and faster in their releases, or it may well be the last upgrade they are in business to offer
Just my 2c worth
