Hi S3D team
I need this feature for my business to purchase and use several continuous Z printers.
I have recently purchased a new licence for S3D but this was very much through gritted teeth as I'm disappointed by what appears to be an abandoned project in terms of development.
Continuous Z is a professional 3D print feature. It's not new. This is make or break for me, as if I have to move to Cura for one printer, I'll do it for all.
What is causing such slow development of the software? You may be stuck in a loop of reducing new subscribers, less budget for developers, slower progress. You need to do something about this. Consider how many 3D print professionals already use Simplify3D - why would we recommend it to or colleagues and customers? Where is the published roadmap for us to get excited about? And, while I dipped my hand in my pocket to buy a new licence all too recently, I would potentially consider paying a SMALL amount towards ongoing development - perhaps others would too. But I need to see what I'd be funding.
S3D has some useful features which do still differentiate it for professional users (I appreciate being able to quickly switch between several different styles of printer from one interface). But others including free alternatives are catching up, and S3D should be building on its strengths in obvious ways - more efficient support patterns, more options for zoning - but we hear crickets.
Please - update us on your current development priorities and timeline!
