  1. Marie-Eve Beaudette Updated

    I currently study in architecture at University de Montréal, but it is in my previous college, the Collège Marie-Victorin where I studied in interior design, that I learned how to use Form Z. Ever since, even if I have learned many other modeling softwares, I keep Form Z as my first choice. I like the interface and the intuitive way it is made to be used : it surely helps me to picture the design I see in my mind.

  2. Katie Eastman Updated

    My name is Katie Eastman and I recently earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture degree at Ohio University in the spring of 2015, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude! At OU I also focused in graphic design, video game development, real estate and other areas of fine art. Throughout my schooling and free time, I enjoy experimenting and creating with different mediums and searching for new programs to teach myself. I have always been intrigued by digital art, especially those utilizing 3D modeling and animation. With formZ I have been able to explore ideas and visually communicate my designs clearly and well-rendered.

    FormZ was the main program used in the Interior Architecture studios at Ohio U. This project was created in order for students to teach themselves formZ through the process of making objects. By thinking out-of-the-box, these 3d mechanical pieces could then be arranged in ways to create conceptual environments and spaces within spaces. Although this project was a crash course in formZ, it ended up being one of my most unique projects that I am proud of! Besides this submission, I also utilized formZ on multiple other projects including a bar/restaurant and art gallery!

  5. Balqees Al Marzouqi Updated

    I am an interior design student at Zayed University in U.A.E. I understand in order to explore a design idea, one has to develop the basic skills of expression through exploration of a simple form by using any media. I enjoyed using Form Z testing my limits through digital and physical modeling

    This exercise was conducted in my first interior design introduction studio (ART 287) to understand exploration of a design idea (35cmX35cmX35cm cube) through digital and physical modeling. Form Z allowed me to guide myself between physical and digital modeling effortlessly. The challenge was not just modeling, but also composition, photography, and graphics as well.

  6. Andrea Palomo Updated

    I am a Guatemalan architect graduated 1 year ago that used form Z for all my projects during architecture school. Now that I am a freelance architect, Form Z keeps being my working partner. My architectural passion is sustainable and ecological architecture, this type of architecture can be characterized by its organic forms, so Form Z is perfect for this designs and would not change it for any other stiff 3D modeling software that would compromise my creative and organic design process.

    The renders where some rendered in form z and others in another rendering software. Images where manipulated in photoshop.

  7. Alexander Gogl Updated

    I love formZ for the convenience (and power!) of its tools and interchangeability. I use it for quick design studies in architecture, urban design, furniture design, object design, and exhibition design.

    When I started studying architecture in Innsbruck I used to draw with Rhino3D, but changed to formZ when I had the feeling that progress was slowing down with Rhino. I was pleased to get my hands on a software where one can construct and model likewise. I am happy that there was a lot of progress in the development of formZ the last years.

    Today I have the impression that I am still the only one who uses formZ at my university. More and more of the other students are using Rhino3D because it has a scripting plugin (grasshopper) that has a good interface and is even for people with no coding experience easy to work with. Also teachers and older students actively promote the use of Rhino and give free trainings.

    This makes me kind of sad, because here, nobody really seems to appreciate the quality of formZ as a modeling and construction software capable of a lot of things. Yes, it does come short in terms of scripting, but maybe in the near future scripting will become more user-friendly in formZ too?

    I designed the project by extensively using the formZ scripting language of formZ6. I used it to link the geometry of NURBS with a underlying mesh which was derived from the spatial program of the bath, and I also manipulated the geometry of the NURBS by creating an algorithm which transforms the points of the NURBS according to the clearance between the points of the mesh and according to the altitude of those points.

    The whole design and visualization was done in FormZ. I later edited the cgis in Photoshop and drew plans in Vectorworks based on the data in the FormZ model. I also built a physical model by slicing the design vertically along the longitudinal axis of the building in formZ and sending it to a laser cutter.

    FormZ allowed me to manipulate and evaluate (dynamic sections, multiple cameras) my design very quickly and to exchange my data without minimal friction with other devices or software. It is always splendid to work with formZ. I only wished that the coding interface in formZ was more dynamic and user friendly.

    "I have been using form•Z for over ten years now and it continues to be an indispensable tool in my practice. There is simply no other program that allows me the flexibility and speed to quickly provide my clients images of their projects. The ability to execute 3D visualizations in real time has become a requirement for many complicated projects. Allowing my clients to analyze the form, material, and lighting of a project from its inception has allowed them to further stretch their imagination. Furthermore it allows for an understanding by all parties involved that only rarely existed before. form•Z continues to expand in ways that open up new opportunities for me and my clients without compromising speed or stability. Technical support has been extremely helpful and patient during those rare moments of frustration and it always provides an acceptable way around a problem."

    Another year working with Form•Z, another year producing images in a short time and with the very best quality. My Studio gives images and animations to other architect studios, and interior designers, in different parts of the world.

    The visualization of their work is much better than a 2D document that the customers are unable to understand. We also, as an architect Studio, take advantage of Form•Z as well. Even designing in 3D and then producing the documentation for constructing in 2D. I would like to thank Seba and his sister, Jaky, for introducing me to Form•Z, it changed my professional life. Images all rendered in Form Z and postproducting in Photoshop.

  19. Springetts Updated

    Billy Waring
    London, United Kingdom

    http://www.springetts.co.uk

    "At Springetts we believe that effective packaging design can go further than a new graphic treatment of an existing pack or label. Beyond the graphics that are applied to a pack, we like to look at the packaging itself - its size, shape and feel. Because physical format can be a powerful communicator, contributing significantly to a brand?s impact and memorability with the customer. Using the state of the art 3D modeling program, form•Z, we can create virtual formats real enough to take to manufacurers - and consumer research. We specialise in developing brand identities that encompass the brand experience from naming and positioning to product presentation, graphic and structural packaging."

    I had experimented (and used in projects) with other 3D software beforehand and alongside form•Z, but over the years I have drifted increasingly to being a fully-fledged form•Z-er. The import/export facilities in form•Z, its accuracy, the responsiveness on relatively low spec computers while modeling, and the vast amount of modeling tools which I will never get bored with, continue to stir my interest in form•Z.

    "These two images are both informational graphics that I did in form•Z and, after rendering in RenderZone, brought them into Photoshop for minor detail work and color correction. I then took them into Macromedia Freehand where they were assembled with text and headlines for placement in newspaper layouts. I have found form•Z to be a very strong program, once you learn how to use it, which may take some time. For certain projects the results are faster and by far superior to what I can do in Freehand and Photoshop, our main graphic tools here at The Times. The flexibility to reuse a graphic, such as the Kursk submarine, is an important element that a 3D modeling program offers. At a newspaper this is crucial since stories often evolve over time. The ability to reuse a graphic element from a different angle or at a different size is important."
