    "My work takes me in two directions. I am a sculptor who creates large scale public art projects. These works can be seen at www.ropek.net. I use form•Z as a design tool as well as a visualization tool for final presentation of the work. There is nothing better than being able to show a client exactly what they are going to get. form•Z allows me the flexibility to render whatever I conceive. I am also a 3D computer artist, this being a media of which I have just been scratching the surface. My work here has been used in advertising and entertainment. My website, www.3Dmental.com has much of my computer art. I love the power of form•Z. It is satisfying to come up with an idea and be able to create it very smoothly."

    Modeled and rendered in form•Z RenderZone.

    I made the model of our home because my dad had intentions of making a home extension (a garage on the ground floor and bedrooms on the first floor). The existing house was built in 1992 in the then popular Ugandan-style of building.

    The Karibu Visitor Centre was my third year project. It is located in Nabusanke, a rural town in Uganda. The visitor centre is situated close to the equator markers which cross the Kampala-Masaka Highway. This landmark attracts visitors who usually stop by to take some pictures on their way to western Uganda.

    I started using form.Z in 2013 during my third year of Bachelor of Environmental Design, Architecture. It was offered as a special topic called Design Computing. Before learning form.Z, I was teaching myself Google SketchUp. I however found the new form.Z 7 interface very intuitive and very easy to learn. I particularly liked the vast palette of modeling tools and the fact that it has an internal rendering engine. I am currently in my year out and doing my research paper. I hope to be graduating in November this year.

    We started using software in the second year by practicing different design softwares. I found that form•Z gives you a strong fast performance by having a strong modeling tools and techniques, architectural drawing and fast decent render, I can say form•Z is a one man show software.

    ---

    The requirement of this project is to combine two functions in one building, Architect office and his own house.
    The distribution of the building masses was based on compatibility of both functions, therefore there are three soft masses combined with a harsh one which represent the circulation and the bond for the building.

    This design is responding for two main factors. The first is taking consideration of the site analysis ( sun direction, accessibility, positive an negative views). And the second one is give a clear identity to an architect office by manipulate with facade and its irregular shape that easily I can treat it using form•Z rather than other softwares.

    ---

    Second project/student housing
    AS a student housing we are targeting to achieve an isolated and secured environment with a social interactive .

    The potential is behind a courtyard concept to achieve these main goals .

    In addition we are attending to create more conservative environment with sustainable material and technique.

    Site response :
    •Manipulate with the unite heights to minimise the exposed area to the sun (South).
    • Blocking the South facade, orient the openings toward the North
    • Provide the access in left side, as it is easer for vehicles.
    •Provide wide openings toward the good winds and block the unwanted.
    • Create a conservative environment by having a small water body, white coating and provide greenery spaces.

  14. Muayad Kaki Updated

    Form Z was the first 3D software that i learned in the university. i was able to design simple housing units at the building and large complex buildings only 2 years later. Dhahran Business School Is my latest project using form z which is also the most organic and complex project i did. Form Z 8.5 made what seemed to be impossible to only applying whats in my imagination by using the subdivision toll.
    Also form z enabled me to crate some nice architectural drawings.

    In this project there where 3 main functions housing administration/academic and commercial. the idea was to crate three different masses each one will contain a function and a forth mass which is the plinth containing the services. Using the technique of tangent surfaces will minimize the connection area between the masses which will define the masses from inside and the out side also it will create the privacy for each function.

    One of the main elements of the design was the atrium. the first thing you see when you inter the building is the atrium which is only covering the academic part also the commercial part is near the main entrance to all people from out side the school to enjoy the experience of the building without disturbing the school.

  16. Nicholas Reachi Updated

    The driving idea behind this composition is layered complexity and tectonic relationships. The layering of spatial arrangements of linear elements allows secondary and tertiary readings. Overlaid linear elements establish explicit and implicit spatial boundaries. The composition is viewed from multiple directions. By applying a reflective material for the tower, the visual relationships of overlapping and interacting members are increased to allow an abstracted reading of the information available within the tower. Cleaving reflections are contrasted with matte and colored elements to highlight members that are continuous from one end of the tower to the other. This creates a physical continuity that grounds the composition, allowing for a more recognizable reading across different viewing angles. What is hidden within the tower reflects several times across multiple surfaces. The effect creates a visually complex composition of multiple layers of information.
    Intro_Text : My name is Nicholas Reachi, age 25 and a graduate student of architecture at Texas Tech University. I enjoy the technical aspect of architecture just as much as the artistic, and like to explore the the physical and psychological nature of uncomfortable spaces in my work while maintaining a project's functionality and habitability. This project was created for a graduate studio focused on constructed improvisational design using FormZ as a primary modeling and exploration tool, working on an architectural composition freed from the constraints of program and site.

  18. Aubrey van Niekerk Updated

    My name is Aubrey van Niekerk, and I am a graduate student at Texas Tech University obtaining my Masters degree in Architecture.  I was in Bennett Neiman's Topical Studio and was introduced to formZ to create our final projects for the semester.  The program was great to use, and yielded graphically striking results.

    Project Description: The inner workings of a refrigerator generates the origin of a series of iterative design decisions. A sequence of implicit spaces are defined and realized, traced and diagrammed. Implications of thick and thin, inside and outside, within and without are determined in figurative drawings that then inform physical reliefs, further developing the nature of the sequence. Layers are formed, pushed and pulled creating spaces in between and are framed and supported. Finally, these elements already defined are multiplied, stretched and distorted to become mechanics that create a new whole. A tower comprised of the history of the iterative process with a new identity and direction. Transparent volumes are introduced to encapsulate intricacies, some of which are further defined by bold color. With each step building off of the previous, we arrive at a new sequence of spaces, enriched by its own creative process.

  19. Sarah Rudge Updated

    Bonjour, je suis finissante en design d'intérieur au cégep Marie-Victorin. J'ai développé au fil de ma formation une familiarité avec le logiciel Form-Z. J'adore l'utiliser pour tous mes projets d'aménagement. Le logiciel est intuitif et facile d'utilisation. Il permet de communiquer mes idées créatives et de leur donner un caractère réaliste. J'aimerais gagné cette compétition  puisque j'adore modéliser en 3D et j'aimerais amorcer une carrière comme designer 3D.

    Chaque image comporte sa description. Le projet représente une boutique pour homme branché.

  21. Yingxi Ji Updated

    I am yingxi Ji and originally come from China. Currently a senior graphic design major student, graduating from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in the spring of 2017. my work is versatile, utilizing print, web and multimedia, as well as more experimental photographic design elements. Besides designing, I am super into furniture and industrial design. I love to make graphic shapes turn into 3D.

    I am submitting two projects I have done for my digital fabrication class. I modeled both of them in form Z and digitally fabricated. I experimented how to make organic shapes in Form Z and then I was thinking the organic shapes I created really looks like traditional chinese window pattern. So I used this elements created a little desk.

    This 'Twisted Vase' might be one of my favorite projects I have done. I like the idea of having two shapes together and when the vase was turning around, the shapes looks slightly different from different angels.
    -'Twisted Vase' was printed by two different progress. the black frame part was generated by CNC and hand finished wood. The inner twisted part used gypsum printer 3d systems.

    We use FormZ for designing the furniture in 3d and to organise the parts by number and assembly groups. We export the data to a csv file before adjusting with a macro using Open Office Calc before importing with Cutlistplus to efficiently lay out the parts on the boards. We then construct and paint or finish the wood in our own workshop before installing in our customers' homes.
    We are bespoke cabinetmakers providing a fitted furniture design, make and install service for our local customers around Aylesbury, Bucks UK.  
     
    We have 20 images relating to a recent project of a bespoke alcove cupboard which take you through the computer aided design stages from design through to completed project. They can be found at this link:
