At this point. It's halfway through Feb with no word from the devs, who seem to consistently delete and tamper with comments to maintain some sort of public image. There's nothing that gives me faith about this stuff. Hose over paying customers with poor communication, lie by omission (deleting comments), and changing around comments. I've relied on S3D only because it let me adjust Z offset in the negative direction, which made it easy to level out an otherwise lame printer I have whose firmware doesn't allow for accurate leveling.
I was expecting and looking forward to 5.0. But at this point, I find myself in a genuine state of buyer's remorse. This software ain't cheap for the casual home gamer. It carries a premium price tag, for which I would between expect and demand a premium product. As it stands, S3D is undercut at nearly every angle from competitors who offer their software free of charge. I have genuine difficulty understanding, at this point, why it is even relevant.
I've well made up my mind that I will not be renewing my license. Frankly I wish I hadn't gotten it in the first place given the latest occurrences, but we're well past refund periods.
I'd say I wish the S3D devs the best going forward, but I'm not even sure they exist given that we've not gotten any updates on promised software that's quite late to delivery. Promising an update to foster buyers and funding then going dark? Maybe it's an exit strat. I don't know. Nonetheless, I don't see myself returning.
This comment has been screenshotted and I'll not take kindly to any tampering to it.
