I want to be sure I clarify my thoughts here.
This topic was by no means to suggest this is an issue with the Shapr3D App or the Shapr3D Team.
My intent of this post was to figure out why I lost access, in this case it was my own fault when I added the Beta App and didn't update (the iPad was set to auto update but didn't). Then the removal of the app and losing my work was also my fault as I didn't do a backup before doing anything.
And more importantly it was my own fault to not back up work that was very important to me. When I first learned to use the app I was backing up with almost every change, but when the app showed that it was stable and not a concern I started backing up less frequent and .... Well I just stopped and hadn't backed up in more than 50 days, which is where my issue is, I should have exported to shapr files like before (lesson learned).
So in short, this topic is to help remind other members of the forums and users of the App to be sure you export to a shapr file or at least backup your iPad to iTunes before you lose data. Backup and do it frequently.
