    I am not sure I would have worded it that way. They did indeed decide to turn off the free only version of their product. They found a bit hard to maintain support and maintenance of a free only product.  I have encouraged them to consider offering a pro level product. Hopefully in the future they will be able to allocate resources to do so. 

    If you are looking for an alternative Integrated Cloud Application for visualizatiopn, I would highly recommend 2 products:


    Each of these offer great capabilities. Each are constantly updating and improving their products. 

    Keyshot as well is a great application. Although it runs on the desktop it support native MacOS and Windows installs. 


    Good call on RealityServer

    I've messed with claira.io and RealityServer is much better and easier to use

    Reality Server is my goto app for rendering on the rare occasion I need an image. Takes a little getting used to but I still seem to able to get something half decent without really knowing what I am doing. I am looking forward to some more reality server improvement in 2018 and thanks @paul_arden ; for the updates is 2017.
