Has any stepped up to 2017?

I have stayed with 2016 as I heard a lot of negatives from folks using 2017.

I'm just wondering if they have all the bugs worked out yet. :thinking:

So, 277 views, and no responses, I'm guessing no one has upgraded?

I've been working on CAD systems since 1990, (first AutoCAD ver 2.50). I gave up a long time ago chasing new versions of any package. I'n currently usint AutoCAD 2007 for 2D and Sketchup 2015 for 3D. I do have a new version available if someone has a model I'd like to look at, but until there's a new feature that I need, it's simply not worth the constant upgrade.

I started using AutoCAD v 1.1 in 1982 and have generally upgraded as soon as possible. On subscription now. I've always found the changes worth a day of hassles, and easier than going many versions before upgrading. If you are only ever going to work on your own, and not collaborate, maybe not so important.

I upgraded and haven't seen any issues. My focus, however has changed since I used it to design my teardrop. I use it now because when used with a plug-in, you can output a g-code file for 3D printing your model.

I've been using it since it came out. No more issues for me than any other release. I tend to lose a plugin or 2 with each upgrade.

Are you using SketUCam or something else for direct G-code output?

I've only installed the plugin and exported. I'll be testing a actual 3D print in the next few days.
