    In my opinion LWCAD is already priced really well for what it offers. I guess this might generate some more interest in the product and maybe there are some users out there who would only use a handfull of LWCAD tools so the full price might be a bit much for them unless they can get a discount.

    but it could be possible that a new version bought in the group buy is cheaper than the upgrade !

    it depends on how much participants are in.

    maybe you ask directly at liberty (kat)

    I think 2.1 wouldn't qualify for upgrade pricing anyway, so you'll have to buy new.

    You are correct. I have LWCAD 2.5 and it can no longer be upgraded. My only option is to buy a complete new license.

    Indeed, i missed the first TFD one as i did not need it at the time, but jumped on the last one. The more we support these guys the more developers will support us i think.

    From what I have read, I think 50% is the biggest discount.
    This is the same amount for my upgrade from version 5.

    Not concerned about this, as it is possibly the best value (most used) plugin I have bought.

    Hello kats.
    The group buy-in is off to a great start and already into the double digits for discount for % off the current list price.
    As always these things only work out to the best they can if the greatest amount of people participate follow through. So please share and participate if you need to get in on this.

    But I assume I would still not be considered a new customer as I've bought a previous version or am I being too literal about this? Maybe Kat can confirm?

    Yep too literal. You can upgrade as far back as LWCad 4. Anything prior you'll basically be a new customer. That's due to the fact that LWCad has a pro-rated upgrade structure. $175 to upgrade from v5 and $259 from v4, so it's logical that the next upgrade price is the current full price of $349. In your case this buy-in discount would be the best way to save a few bucks off the best plugin for LW.
