    The formz change I would most like to see.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the 'Center and Tile' texture map feature only really work with RenderZone? I remember it being confusing that in Shaded preview the maps would look out of place until you rendered with RenderZone. RenderZone is dead, long live RenderZone! That said, it was a fantastically efficient tool, and if it could be made to work with the OpenGL based Shaded render and VRay, I'd be all for it! I'd also LOVE to see the OpenGL based Shaded renderer updated to allow higher quality and some other features like more advanced lighting and emitter light materials. According to the OpenGL language, these should be possible in the renderer! It would allow us to better approximate VRay render scenes with the Shaded Full engine while designing our environments. Efficiency!

    +1. This was much more efficient.

    The formz change I would most like to see.

    I'd like the devs to bring back the center and tile to the standard texture map feature. More often than not, a texture I make covers the whole side of an object, and I want to be able to auto-center it and easily set it to tile to the object's exact height and width. form•Z 6.5 had this; I've no idea why they removed it. Would save me SO much time vs. manually measuring the object and inputting the dims in the texture map palette.... SIgh.
  7. I come across this issue fairly often. the object in question was created using Reshape and Offset Outline. In the front view, Slice the 3/4" tube with the lines (Heal enabled), then try to delete one of the resulting objects. The objects have turned into surfaces instead of solids. My workaround was to create an ambiguous object and boolean difference the objects. It's not a huge issue, but an issue that should be fixed, nonetheless. slice.fmz

    DAE export scale issue

    Scratch that thanks to allanjl's post I have to export in inches as there is obviously a bug when using mm for export
  9. Hi All, I'm having a weird scale issue when exporting as .DAE files, when i import them into Sketchup (yes that old chestnut!) they are 25.4 times bigger? I'm exporting as mm and importing into a mm based project. When i export/import as a dwg/dxf with the same settings all is correct (though the objects then have other issues hence use of .DAE) Anybody have a clue im using 8.6.5 on windows build 10275 and the files are being opened in Sketchup 2018? Thanks in advance SJ

    formZ 9

    Last few months I uploaded several movie’s with errors to ADS support, they were happy to see these bugs in a movie. It makes supporting and solving much easier, they said. I’m using the latest version of the software and I am happy I could help them in this way. Today I have read this complete thread again and again it seems we users lost our interests. More than a year ago today; no input. So I give it a little kick... ADS, how is it going these days with the development of the next version? Is there anything you can bring to the forum?

    undos are still broken

    Mine are not set to unlimited. 20 is what I have.

    undos are still broken

    I never thought about that, but yes, it is set to Unlimited. Ill change it to 12 (and maybe increase later) to see if that resolves the issue. thanks, Des!

    Paint tool

    Yes, it is great. I use it a lot for placing plants on a ground surfaces.

    undos are still broken

    I'm just wondering if you have your undos set to use Unlimited or not. I have mine set to 12 operations and don't get any problems. When I'm sometimes working on very large files (especially with imported data) I can get a slowdown on functions, but resetting the undo/redo solves that instantly. Des

    I'm working locally on a project and I'm still having the same problem. I just restarted my machine. hopefully that will help for a while... 🙄

    FormZ to C4D Workflows

    I will add that using .FBX export from FMZ is extremely efficient and reliable. Simply import into C4D. All materials/textures come in as they are in FMZ. I add cameras and lights, adjust bump and/or reflectivity and hit render.

    Using C4D brings me joy, every time.

    Export for CNC paths

    If you do as I did, you won't need to tie the segments together, as both the unfold and the projection of a single face should keep all intact. ¢£

    Global Material Override control

    If anyone finds this: I realized if I put all the layers in a "master" group I can control the settings easily through layer overrides.

    undos are still broken

    Yes this also happens to me from time to time. I haven't been able to isolate the cause. Just have to restart the app. There is also the bug with "show controls" in the sub-d mode. Sometimes it won't turn off and I have to restart to cure that too. The other ongoing issue I have is the immediate crash when I try to use the "rounding" tool. That's been going on since V7. Doesn't do it every time. But often enough I know to be sure to save before I click on it.

    FormZ to C4D Workflows

    I miss using C4D. It's still my favorite of all the 3D programs I have used.

    Thanks Des! I can make it work with my textures, no problem. Thanks so much! Cheers, John A

    Hi John, I just got around to sending the file to Anton so he can share it on the https://www.formz.xyz site, but if you need it quicker, PM me and I'll send you a direct download link. It's way too large for posting here. I had to remove some of the wood textures as they are arroway textures which I'm not allowed to share but I'm sure you have plenty of your own. The rest are maxwell materials. The file is large so I set all objects to low resolution to try to reduce it, but you can increase again if required. Des

    Have a look at the STEP format. C4D R20 has some excellent CAD import functionality.
