The LightYear upgrade is well worth the cost. The finepoint supports saves
time and money! The clean up of parts off the platform is 10 times easer
and faster. We aren't breaking parts with support removal! The supports
are not pitting the parts, which means no more repairing all those small
holes on a flat part. Also, the Small Feature Preserving Compensation
option works great for lettering and small features. These are only a few
of the improvements.

Hello All,

I must admit I'm a bit astonished at the price for the Lightyear upgrade for
those of us not on a maintenance agreement! I expected it to be between
$500 and $1000 but I just got a quote for $2375.00! I swear I remember
someone at 3D saying that the cost of software upgrades should be no
different then something like Microsoft or Adobe would charge.
