Shapr3D is definitely one of the slickest and most user friendly CAD programs out there. It’s got great potential. And with iPad, macOS, and Windows support, it’s surely possible it will be a smashing success.
However, there’s one big problem. The pricing strategy is crazy and severely punishes excited users that would want to purchase this platform. I understand that $60 a month is popular with Autodesk Fusion 360, at least. But Fusion 360 offers a free version for hobbyists that does way more than the $30 a month plan of Shapr3D. Does anyone realize this absolutely limits your customer base?
I want the iPadOS innovations and the macOS optimizations but I simply cannot wrap my head around this concept. Shapr3D has the potential to be a market disruptor but it seems the people in charge would rather follow the status quo and lock their app behind a extremely high paywall for the sake of greed.
To put it simply, you have frustrated this user that can’t even afford your app to a point where they sign up on a form to complain about it. There’s nothing else I can do. And from a quick search on this forum, it seems most posts like this have been hidden.
Here’s a tip. Fix your pricing. It’s way too expensive and poor value. And you’re going to ruin your own tool before it even has a dedicated community.
By the way, I’m totally fine with buying software. But $10 or even $15 a month would be markedly better than what we have now. Besides, non commercial licenses exist. It’s pretty standard in this industry.
I want to use your software, so why won’t you let me?
