Copyright notices in Simplify3D

Wed Sep 15, 2021 10:35 pm

Hi experts, we would like to buy several sets of Simplify3D, however, based on our purchasing rules and regulations, copyright notice, especailly open source adoption in Simplify3D, is needed to check, where can I get this document? Thanks

I would contact them directly. One question I have though is why Simplify3D? They've ceased nearly all communication with people regarding the next V5 release that was meant to be released over two years ago I believe. Prusaslicer and Cura surpass S3D. I haven't found a feature that S3D has that the other open source ones have, for my and many others use case. In fact the open source ones have much more to offer. We had a makerspace looking to purchase about 30 licenses of S3D, but that was shutdown by myself and others after showing the board how horrible they are at communication and breaking release schedules. They use a mix of Cura and PrusaSlicer now without issues. Yes there a slight learning curve but isn't that what this community is about?

Likely because a lot of companies still have a mind set that Free = Bad & Paid = Good

But its been well over 2 years now when they said about v5 and all the do is try and plug v4 on social media as if it was the latest and greatest to likely hope to top up some bank accounts.
