Unfortunately, I also do not understand why this discussion has once again degenerated into a software war that has long since become out of fashion.
However, I clearly take the side of the critics of our beloved 3D software FormZ.
I have been working with this tool since 1994, the way it works has probably become second nature to me and I am probably dependent on the continuation of this software for the purpose of my professional life - which is not difficult for me.
This is exactly why I am always critical in these forums, be because of the (subjectively) old-fashioned and partly unergonomic UI, the way V-Ray, for example, is implemented and how it looks with regard to communication with the users. In this respect I always have to look with envy at other products, such as Blender, Keyshot, Rhino and Affinity.
That I bet on this horse 30 years ago, which feels so wobbly today, always makes me angry and sad - but I could live with that. But why do I feel no indication and no effort on the part of AutoDesSys to remove these concerns and to communicate future perspectives clearly and proactively?
