  4. I' m considering buying a new Windows 10 computer. I've looked at a few in various stores. Many come bundled with Windows 10 Home edition. Is there any issues installing/ running FormZ Pro on Home vs Pro edition? Any graphic cards to avoid?
  5. For the derive extrusion tool please give us the option to set a new material.

    Rounding a face

    thank you very much for the help. I imported the contour of the face as a 2D .dxf file. that was an old file and therefore facetted vva

    Rounding a face

    Your model is faceted. That is, there are no controls on it now to create the radius that exists. There isn't enough room left between the segments to have the larger radius. I edited your object (removed the faceted radii, trimmed the segments and finally joined them back) Now you can have much larger radii. Use controlled/smooth though... this will allow you to go back and edit them later. Unless, for what ever reason you need faceted. R1toR2-Edit.fmz
  9. Thanks a lot, snow, you saved me a lot of time! Andrea

    Rounding a face

    a very simple thing ? I try to change the radius of the 4 edges from R=1,0mm to R=2,0mm. but none of the tool works. (btw. 3 of the 4 sides are rounded with a big radius) vva R1toR2.fmz
  11. I've been asking for that since sub-d was added. Better late than never.

    Rounding issue

    The object has a very small face at the neck which is causing the problems. To find it I deleted the faces I colored orange and yellow. You can now see that face (highlighted pink). I eliminated it by moving the points from the top of the yellow face to the bottom of the orange face. I then used the Object Doctor to eliminate the four duplicate points I had just caused o be created (Object 1 in the attached file). In moving those points I found that I had now made some of the faces non planar which caused issues once again with the Rounding Tool (Object 2). Once I had made all the faces planar, the object rounded as expected (object 3). 1501151658_RoundingIssue Rebuilt.fmz.zip

    Select All Challenges

    I always work with Groups Unlocked and I often have this same issue. After some unpleasant unintended consequences I have actually stopped using Select All entirely. Now I zoom out and rectangle select as an alternate way of selecting all visible. I think this issue needs some looking into. I'm on Mac, OS 10.11.6.

    form•Z 9 beta

    Bo, codes for 8.6.x should work. Nothing special beyond that.
  15. ... specially for SubD, it was a great lack. Thank's ADS!

    form•Z 9 beta

    I missed seeing this beta availability earlier, tried installing just now, Sept 14... It asks for license-code but my valid serial# is refused and there are many past 'codes'... is there a special way get this right on Mac? Or does a new set need to be applied for?
  17. Well. I got my system set up and running again, basically by re-installing Maxwell 3 then the FormZ plug in for 3 installers several times. Just in the nick of time, considering the numerous deadlines looming ominously ahead. And with a very minimum of help from Next Limit, who used to always be very responsive. The only help I could get from them this time was a very brief note including my license codes, they completely ignored my questions thereafter and I wonder if they are committed to helping FormZ customers at this point. Anyway I really hope Maxwell & FormZ don't fall by the wayside, for me it's always been a really effective tandem for getting my rendering work done.
  18. Without maxwellrender in v9 it doesnt make sense for me to buy formZ-v9... By the way, are there any plans for integrating some other photorealistic render plug-ins (octane, arnold, etc....) ?

    Rounding issue

    Hi All, I've spent much the afternoon attempting to get a simple form have rounding applied. If the shape is tapered it works but if it is tapered with a waist it is not possible. Any pointers appreciated, offending file attached. Thanks in advance Andrew www.gyro.co.nz Rounding Issue.pdf Rounding Issue.fmz

    wip & recent renders

    Hey Des, Jaakko Thanks for your comment guys This is still a work in progress , attempting planning approval for a spa in this location is fraught with problems... The modelling to this stage is several weeks but a lot of reworks and modifications Rendering - each sequence was 20 - 30 hours on a high end card

    wip & recent renders

    I liked a lot of that Nunduk animation. Great work pipo! I'm curious, how long the project took, modelling and rendering?
