Thanks for sharing (and lets hope your fear is unfounded).

:unamused:

Edit:
From this page: https://www.netfabb.com/blog/netfabb-basic-now-just-netfabb

Instead of downloading netfabb Basic as a separate product, all customers have to do now is download the free Netfabb trial. For the first 30 days, users will have access to all the features of Netfabb Premium, including advanced packing, support structures and support for metal additive systems. When the trial expires, the software will continue to run with the same functionality that was previously netfabb Basic. For most users, it’s still the same basic Netfabb you know and love and can be used to preview, fix, and analyze STLs and much more.

Geez - it’s a 1.2 GB .exe. The old off-line installer was 7 MB. I think I’ll pass (after I entered all my information.)


#6

Yes, smells like much more functions going offline after trial expired than in SU :wink:
