I am a big fan of Thea/FZ and bought the plug-in, question is:

 

- Development is cancelled due to not enough FZ users buying into it...?

- ...an update is in the making ?

- Thea will be integrated into FormZ 9 (wohoo) ?

 

Any news here ?

NO, it's not dead!

 

I'm a big fan of the Thea FormZ plugin as well.  I reached out to Manolis at Solid Iris last week for an update and within 24hours, I got this in return.   :)

 

Hi Justin,

 
Thanks for pointing to that thread. As I replied there, questions regarding the plugin's availability should be directed to our sales.
The plugin's development has not stopped, the version synced with the latest version of Thea (1455) will be made public next Tuesday  :)
 
Thanks for contacting us.
 
Kind Regards,
Manolis

this all doesnt help to anyone not customer, as the test version is still the old one and sales told me that currently it is not possible to buy it...

I'd like to hear from zWeb Support on the status of Thea and ADS.

6 weeks later...
I am still a big fan of Thea/FZ and bought the plug-in, question is:

- Development is cancelled due to not enough FZ users buying into it...?
- ...an update is in the making ? (Yes its out and works well)
- Thea will be integrated into FormZ 9 (wohoo) ?

Any "official" note regarding continuity of the plug-in?

Hi,

 

It would be nice to get some clarification on this. Interestingly, the Blender, Fusion 360 and 3D Studio Max pages no longer have purchase buttons too.

 

Thanks,

 

Nige.

Hello.

 

I've reached out to Solid Iris to see if we can get any further clarification.  The fact that Blender, Fusion 360 and 3D Studio MAX are no longer available for purchase is suspicious to me.  Leaving only Cinema 4D, Rhino, and SketchUp.  There are likely more 3D Studio users than all other combined, so it would be especially surprising to hear that they were no longer supporting that enormous platform.  

 

Let's wait and see before we jump to bad conclusions.
