EITG Forums was taken offline

I just checked EITG Forum and it was taken offline. I am wondering EIAS3D will archive those useful threads.

EIAS Website

Hi,

It's a different address for a new EI.

http://www.eias3d.com/

Craig,

Yes.. that is the URL for the new ownership, but Burney was asking about the original EITG forum history. If it hasn't been archived on the new site, its likely all those old posts are gone.

Exactly, EIAS manual is very basic and there isn't any comprehensive tutorials around. Those older threads are very useful when come to solving some peculiar EIAS problems. I am sad that they are gone. If the new EIAS owner can continue to host those threads will be much appreciated.

Sorry,

I was pretty sleepy and I misunderstood. I notice all the tutorials are on the new site. But yes, it would be good to have access to all the info. Maybe that stuff can get transferred to the new site. Tomas Egger would be the one to ask about that, I think.

Hopefully, there are still enough users here to help when questions come up.

Well I'll do what I can to help answer any questions if you have some.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for keeping this forum alive. I think this will be the EIAS user forum for mutual help and chats. Your opinions and thoughts are always enlightening. If you have time, keep them coming. Thank you in Advance,

Cheers!

EIAS is a good software package. It is my hope that the EIAS3D team can revitalize it again. v9 will be a true litmus test.

In the meanwhile... how would you like to see this forum revitalized?

Hi,

Yep, EI is very good. With someone new to care about it, it may be even better. I would definitely like to see this forum come back to life. I think it was short sighted for it to be shelved in the first place.

Strange that eitechnologygroup.com wasn't forwarded to the new owners and that they let it expire. I mean a domain is only like $8. per year. Not a very friendly gesture.

Well since Parscale Media was ultimately handling EITG's account, I'm sure Brad probably has all the data sitting on his own server somewhere. The question is whether or not he'd transfer it to EIAS3D. Either the new company didn't ask for it, or maybe you're right and Brad chose not to give it them. I have no idea.

Just out of curiosity: Comparing EIAS to Modo on a feature and price basis (895$ vs 995$), do you think itīs price level is realistic?
(I donīt, just to make that clear.)
