I’m still quite upset about the fact that my teams cannot utilize this tool in a way that I KNOW is possible because it used to present realistic graphical representations. I understand they have put holes back in the metal pieces but they haven’t done anything with the fact that the screws don’t have a head on them so there is constantly an issue of putting them in backwards and falling out. Also, all other components look like basic geometric shapes making realistic representations of student created design uninspiring to say the least.
Is the issue monetization? Make it for sale, I wouldn’t have a problem at all with that. If it is a reasonable cost, I’m sure many users would happily purchase the “full” version of Robot Mesh Studio.
I hate to sound negative about a free application and we do certainly still utilize the program for creating programs for our robots and rudimentary mimics, but it is very frustrating to have once had a great simulation tool be reduced in such a way.
