I made an account here to let Trimble know it has lost a user. The subscription only model is disgusting and the way it was announced as a good thing for the consumer was just insulting.
IF they manged to pull their heads from their backsides and permit a free non-commercial license like almost everyone else then I could be slightly less offended, but the concept of the never ending payments for typically less updates and features over time is just another anti-consumer move by these software companies.
Trimble got its market share by opening itself up for wide spread hobbyist usage and kept it’s own feature development cost down by forcing 3rd parties to develop useful plugins. What now? Stupidly high ongoing prices for what? There are other programs out there that cater for the now ignored hobbyist market there.
I won’t spend an hour going through point by point my issues with the software as it would counterproductive but I have now migrated to Fusion 360 and it does most of what I need it to do.
As this is the official forum for SU, I encourage a Trimble rep to discuss with me if they desire.
Thank you and don’t worry I wont hurt more feelings by putting a naughty word here.
