I have been working in graphic design for over 30 years and started using formZ 10 years ago. Most of my work is mechanical or in-store displays which formZ is perfectly suited for. The work flow is quick, efficient and can be very impressive.
"We are a full service design studio specializing in tradeshow exhibit design. We work with exhibit fabricators and design companies, providing them with exceptional creative development and hundreds of award winning designs, 3D graphics, and animations. With incredibly short industry deadlines, and demanding schedules, we can quickly model and render anything we want in form•Z. It is our major workhorse! The biggest advantage occurs after the design, when we are able to quickly and easily export CAD drawings to our clients for accurate estimating and final production. form•Z is a perfect fit for our industry."
form•Z is second to none as an architectural modeler: Myriad import and export options ensure an efficient work flow between applications; Renderzone provides all the tools necessary for rapid visualization, particularly with the 6.5 release; and intuitive modeling tools grant impressive flexibility, making form•Z an indispensable design tool.
The majority of work in this gallery was produced during my time at Andras Allen Starr Architecture in Columbus, GA. I work between AutoCAD, form•Z, Photoshop, and Illustrator to produce conceptual visualizations, both diagrammatic and realistic. Support for RPC content, object based animation, and other recent improvements have been great for my work flow.
"I have used form•Z professionally for 4 years now and in that time I have been able to watch progression of your software develop. I have to say that, out of all the programs I have worked with, form•Z has always performed well above expectations. The constant updating and refining of tools are a couple of reasons that form•Z keeps us ahead of the competition. Here at Display Studios, we are always putting the versatility of this software to the test. I find that with form•Z the visual impact of the drawing alone can result in less or zero revision time, which cuts down on our company's overhead."
"I studied Aerospace Engineering at Parks College of St. Louis University, and later I did an industrial design engineering master's degree at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College of Technology in London (where I used a very early version of form•Z). In 1998 I decided to start an industrial design company called Dinamo. Dinamo is an Industrial and product design company based in San Sebastian, Spain (Europe). As you can see from our products, we design almost everything, but are specially focused on technical stuff, which is why we choose form•Z for its flexibility and quality. Our design process involves the use of 3D modeling almost from the beginning of the project. We render with RenderZone, after we make few manual sketches. This provides speed and a superb presentation."
"DesignGroup uses form•Z as a design and presentation tool. We begin with a schematic form•Z model, then use it as a tool to investigate the design. A multitude of changes and refinements are made to the model, allowing the designer and client to decide upon the best design solution. We also use form•Z to create finished presentation renderings for projects that require community or government agency approval. Additionally these same photo-realistic RenderZone images are used for fund-raising purposes. Because a high degree of realism can be achieved with RenderZone, it is easy to communicate the client's vision to potential donors, thus creating excitement for the project to raise the necessary funds to make the project a reality."

"DES Graphics provides motion and media to the architecture and interior design environment. Though we use other modelling capable software also, we still use form•Z exclusively to construct and build our 3D models. RenderZone allows our designers to quickly visualize their ideas all the way from massing diagrams to photorealistic renderings. For animations, form•Z exports smoothly and effortlessly into 3D Studio Max. form•Z remains fundamental to our presentation system that has been successful to both our clients and us."

Dean Marchetto Architects, PC is a 10 person award winning architectural firm in Hoboken NJ. "We use form•Z to create these architectural renderings for our clients and public review committees. These high quality renderings have lifted our presentations to a new level. Clients and public review committee members are constantly asking us for color copies to frame or pin up on their walls. The use of these renderings has proved to be a great asset in the design and approval process for our projects."
De-Visu is a company specialized in high quality renderings for architects, real-estate professionals, and designers. We use Form•Z as our main modeler and Maxwell for our renderings. We started this adventure in 2006, since then we developed a savoir faire in producing renderings playing between realism and graphism.

"Design Service and Engineering (D.S.E) established in 1973. Since then we are designing a very large variety of products for different industrial sectors. D.S.E was founded and is managed by Miki Ganor, who majored in industrial design at the Illinois Technological institute. He is joined by Dan Manoim and top class academically trained designers with years of experience, who are each offering a personal style, thus creating a system rich with ideas an innovations and yet based on production.
We offer a variety of design services. Starting with the design concept, that's where form•Z plays a major roll, appearance models, prototypes, down to manufacturing files using other high-end CAD programs. Each of our workers is equipped with a form•Z workstation and we use that tool to express our ideas quickly and freely, but with a CAD level precision. This way we keep the gap between the concept and the final product minimal. On the other hand our clients enjoy the amazing output of RenderZone, which in many cases is used for product brochures months before it's actually manufactured.
"The successful blending of nature and technology may represent the Holy Grail of design. Furniture seems to be one of the more practical expressions of this quest. In 'the Dove Set' Peter Cybulski has brought together a functional and aesthetic work that is truly an emotional experience to anyone who has felt that bond with nature, or, has wondered at the beauty of flight. This stunning relationship has brought forth another element, which in itself is rare today... comfort and ergonomic pleasure."

"The world of architectural Illustrations and Animations is very exciting for us and we feel privileged to have an opportunity through the association of form•Z to show others what we have created and achieved using the form•Z 3D modeling programme." - Gregory P. Scott, Managing Director
"I am an Engineer and a freelance Architectural 3D modeler and renderer who has been in business for over six years. Having discovered form•Z a few months after I started my business, I have sworn by it since then. I have found that in order to get the functionality that form•Z offers, you would have to purchase several much more expensive software packages and hope that they work together somehow. Over the years, the fact that form•Z can read and convert so many other file formats has been invaluable to me."
