x10 upgrade question

Recommended Posts

I've been pretty sick this year, again, I did pay my update fee for x9 and I just noticed that x10 is available.

 

How long has it been available and shouldn't I get the upgrade since my lic doesn't expire until 7/2018? Is the x10 update worth the effort?

 

Thanks for your help

Absolutely worth the “effort” in my opinion.  No doubt about it.

yes, you get X10 for free

 

it has "plan sets" and from what I hear they are a very nice feature

 

go to the announcements section of the forum and there will be a link to a list of new features

and some videos about those features

Thank you Alaska Son for the comment.

 

@lbuttery ...thanks Lew, that's really good news. I don't have an option to download x10 in my "Locker" ....only says the x10 is available for a price. But my " x9 support and ssa are good until 7/20/2018 ....guess I'll have to give them a call.....hope you're correct :)

I am only unhappy about Ray Tracing in X10, otherwise, it has markedly increased my productivity per minute-hour, the best yet!

confusion ?  2016 or 2018 for SSA ?

 

Lew

 

2016 would explain why the Upgrade to X10 is not Free but I don't think x9 was available in 2016 ( Feb 2017 I think? )   but SSA may have expired July 2017 if you purchase July 2016 but that SSA would of given you the Free Upgrade to X9 but no further .....your Digital Locker tells you when SSA Expires right under the Serial No#.

X10 is definetly worth the update, it had a few kinks they had to work out at first, but most of them are fixed now. The only issue I had as someone else pointed out on here, is ray tracing does not work as well with the materials optimized for the new pbr feature. However with that being said, pbr rendering can look just as good if not better than ray tracing with the right materials and lighting used (plus there is no wait).

      X10 for sale $1,000, this does not have SSA.

      When you unlicense  x11 it also unlicenses x10 or if you unlicense  x10 it also unlicenses x11. That is fine and I understand why it is being done. However is should also work the other way if I license x11 for my laptop then it should give me access to x10 or vise versa..
      Case in point, I licensed x10 on my laptop to go into the field and meet with a client on a job, I have been working on for a while. Unfortunately the drawing had been opened and saved in x11 and was in the wrong file folder. Being in the middle of nowhere without internet connection I was hosed <that's the nice word> thanks to chiefs new way to  license. If you are going to remove access to x10 and x11 if just one is unlicensed then if I license one product the other should be licensed on the same machine it should automatically give access to the other product.
      Chief please fix this MAJOR licensing problem.

      Good Morning!  I am upgrading to x11 this week and wanted to know what to do with x10 and x9 on my desktop.  Can I move these over to a zip drive and retrieve them later if I need to view an old plan that I made?  I'm trying to free up some space on my computer.  I haven't used x9 since I upgraded to x10, so I'm assuming that once I upgrade to x11, I won't be using x10 either.  What do you guys do?
       
      Thanks,
      Jim
