    hi yobuddy

    I am about to start my 4DOF project. do you have any idear if it would be a waste of time to start using Simtools V2.5.1 instead of just waiting a bit longer and then start up with Simtools V3?

    @Stefan4DOF,
    Your license will work for both software packages at the end of the day.
    And you can even run them side by side (but not at the same time of coarse).

    V3 is a complete, more modern, rewrite of SimTools.
    Streamlined, to be easier to understand, with a more of a 'pictorial' menu system.
    But in the end of the day. they both will get your sim up and running.
    And the concepts to setting them up are roughly the same.

    You could always play with the demo of v2 until v3 drops.
    But v3 will come in stages.
    As I can't really add a bunch of "bell's and whistles" to v3 until I have a solid tested base to work on.
    So the first version of v3 will be Alpha1, and it will support motion only (and new plugins are required).
    (dash, vibe and a few other things will be added in a later alpha version)
    So v3 will roll out in stages, with more and more being supported, until its fully up and running.

    Hope that helps buddy!
    Take care,
    yobuddy
