    Any reason to upgrade yet?

    OK, So I am no longer a typical user, I use 11.6.2 on Mac and 90% of what I do now is create 3D objects to 3D print or 3D carve. The other 10% being creating high res still images for advertising.

    Bought a new 3D printer, a TAZ 4 and it's pretty sweet. Not as smooth a finish as a resin based printer but for FDM it's nice and I create products I can use that are structural and strong.

    The industry I supply images to do not really want photo realistic, they want to ultra clean computer cg look of old. That is why I use 3D and not real photos.
