Ouch, I hadn't thought of the piracy angle. All too true, I'm sure.

Thanks Ann, I'm sure the rise in 3D printing will have a fundamental impact on cloud-based CAD software. On the other hand, I think piracy plays a major roll as well.

Thanks for reporting this, Cabe. It's especially interesting to see the survey results regarding the upcoming rise in the use of 3D printing. It will be even more interesting to see their results next year, after the SLS patents expire and we see more low-cost SLS machines enter the market. FDM patent expiration is thought by many to be a major driver behind the explosion in filament fusion machines in the last 12-18 months or so.
