Nice move - instead of fixing the bugs that are in the old version, let's simply call it a new version and develop some greed to squeeze more money out of the customers who already paid a ridiculous high price to begin with. Nice move.

@TomOH you are assuming that version 5 will ever ship. Right now it is vaporware, until proven otherwise. And no one would like to see me proven wrong more than myself.

Got this email from support a few days ago, after i had asked about what happens with one year free update..

"Thanks for your email. As was already stated back at the start of the year, we're currently working hard to finish up the last remaining items for the version 5 update. We haven't announced any changes to the 1 year of included updates at this time.

I'll be passing your feedback along to our management team.

Regards,

~Simplify3D Support"

Upgraded my Prusa to an i3 MK3S and started using PrusaSlicer-2.2.0. Yes, it nice having their separate filament settings, ability to show remaining time, and some other features/improvements, etc. But, even with bunch of tweaks, their supports just don't match S3D. Guess what I am saying is v5 is likely worth waiting for, IMO...

So I assume that S3D V5 will be out in 2021 because of everything on top of the longest software update tease I've ever been a part of....

But seriously, is there any projections? Before Summer, during, after? I live within a 20min drive from S3D HQ here in Cincinnati, and most businesses like S3D are open. Would just like to get an update from the team.

Well would you please drive up there then and ring a bell or something :lol:

What is very frustrating is that somebody regularly removes posts here but doesn't take the time to give the slightest bit of info. Not even another ''we're working on it, so sorry for the delay''

In my opinion, the next version 5 will never show up. There are too many free and excellent slicers out there.

I've tried ideaMaker and it's really good, supports like Simplify3D and much more powerful features. I don't expect anyone to pay these days for a slicer.

I've been using it for years and so it was worth the money but now it's too late. Moreover, you won't see in this forum anymore new messages from Simplify3D for months which is also a sign.

I guess it's a small company and it was too much work for one or two.

If you still want to believe, light a candle ;o))

Let's hope the company didn't go bankrupt.

And they censor posts. I wrote that I had not yet encountered such arrogance from the company and the administrator did not approve my contribution and did not publish the contribution.
