The announcement was more about the next update being paid. We felt that it was very important to make sure that fact was clear to our user base early on. I hear your cries for more information and can't wait to share more about this exciting new update.moggb wrote: next time, don't announce new software major update before typing any new line of it and making a list of a new features maybe?
Thanks for your take on the situation. We're obviously glad to have made the mess less messy for you for all these years!Jbc wrote: S3D is my go to slicer.
I think most in here feel the same.
When V5.0 has a ‘Buy and download’ button preceded by a list of new features, not many in here won’t be excited.
I for one will support the company as using this software for by business as well as for personal use has made printing easier than anything out there.
Will it be perfect? No.
Will it get patched a little after it’s release? Yes.
Will it be your go to slicer? More than likely.
FDM will have a place alongside resin printers for years to come.
I’m antsy to get my hands on the software like most in here but will support S3D when 5.0 comes out.
Their software has helped make the additive manufacturing mess less messier for since 2012.
Stay safe and wear a mask.

Supports seem to be something that this software does well (from what I've read here and around the web) , but it seems that the software has not seen any updates in quite a while and that has put me off buying the software. I'm sure there are many other prospective users who find the apparent silence and slightly disgruntled opinions of users of the software here.
If there was at least some sort of timetable to release or some sort of (no matter how vague) list of new or improved features that are coming in V5 then I might be purchasing sooner rather than later, I guess I'm also put off by not knowing whether if purchasing now I would be eligible for a free upgrade to 5, if the answer to that is no then I will continue to wait and come back when it's available.
Thanks for sharing your valuable insight. Hopefully we see you as a S3D user in the future.
