    I’d like to see more on pricing (looks like it’s going to be cheaper than SW, etc but more than Alibre) and what has really changed from VX 14.

  • Dave Ault

    There are no changes from V14 because this is still V14. They are on V14.5 and there show to be V14.6 and V14.7 before release of V15 sometime this spring. VX is trying to implement direct editing and evidently this has been a far bigger task than they thought it would be. At the begining of this year they were confident of a September release but that went away fast. The pricing, which is on their web site if you care to look is $7,000.00 for what is the equivalent of End to End and the rest is cheaper.

    Thanks Dave, but I can’t find quickly find ZW’s pricing. (The old VXStore is still up, but I don’t think it matches ZW’s new pricing). The Buy link for ZW3D Standard leads to a “contact reseller” page.

    I hope ZW spends a lot more time on marketing than VX ever did — and don’t be too coy about price.

    Tony, sorry about the link. I just checked it and they are not showing prices now. They appear to be poorly organised for this and the only reseller that I knew of in the Southeast US was fired by VX some months back and not replaced. I hope this is not a sign of things to come.
