I'm curious about the new features formZ 9 will bring. Could we get a preview and an ETA?

Maybe Z Tech will offer us a Christmas Surprise?

I do feel we see a bit more of Formz in the trade. The fact that Next limit decided to drop the LIghtwave plugin but kept the FormZ plugin is showing that trend.

I hope an eventual V9 could bring more user to consider Z in their toolset. The free version certainly helps.

 

I would also like to know if something is in the oven or not.

Shouldn't there be a version of 8.6, 8.7, 8.8, 8.9 first?

 

:huh:

Des,

  Not if there is a significant jump in capabilities.    

  If they added the scripting SDK,  That alone would warrant a full #.  Especially if it were in Python or Something.

  Possibly even if it were written in a newer environment such as Swift (windows now get it too...   https://swiftforwindows.codeplex.com)

 

I too am hoping for a Christmas Beta    or better yet,  how about something to give Thanks for?

If they're smart, they will skip version 9 and go straight to version 10, just like Microsoft did with Windows

I follow that logic no more than that of Microsoft's.

Cool. Could you say please how difficult would it be to make a Python script to alter object axis of all selected objects as height, depth and thickness according to longest dimension first, mid dim second and shortest dim last? I'm careful to model correctly now, but that would help me to correct a lot of my old models quickly as a batch operation saving a lot of time. Thanks.

Attached are some ideas from Canon that I thought might come in handy.   I especially like the Pizza command

Easier in the sense that you can use Python for other things.  Opposed to FSL, where you couldn't.   Less to learn = easier.
