As the business owner, designer, manufacturer, and sales representative of a small jewelry business, I completely agree with the “not now I’m busy” comment.I fell in love with T-Splines 2 years ago, designed a few pieces for my initial line, and sadly didn’t buy it before it went strictly to Fusion 360. So here I am now looking for the alternative. I would try Fusion 360, but I can’t afford the time for the learning curve, and I love Rhino’s UI.
So yesterday I went to check out Clayoo, and I had the same reaction, 2 days, 15 days, neither is enough for me to spend $800. It does create some “friction” on the buying/trying end. That is the equivalent of a nice large tool: Down payment on a pneumatic engraving machine, an expensive ball vice, etc.
I am the small business guy who uses cad, not the seasoned CAD expert like the rest of you, so I do wonder who Stuller is trying to get with this product. Fyi Stuller, I was a Stuller First member so no hate here, but you would make more sales with people like me if you lowered the price a bit. I wouldn’t have blinked if it was around $400.
Anyhow back to the grind.
