    Please welcome PowerCADD

    After years of bouncing back and forth between these two apps my wish has come true.

    weirdness...

    Apparently I have not fixed the file size upward creep, the model was 10.5mb which reduced to 5.5mb after I cut and pasted into a new project. I deleted the doors and windows (which were largely imported from sketchup) to bring the file size down 3.3mb. model1.fmz.zip

    Tech, how do I post a file? It's 10.5 mb.

    OK, so selecting "reset after saving project" seems to have stopped the file size issue, whew. After renaming prefs folder and relaunching fZ materials palette was 6 (large icon) columns wide and worked as normal. Just to test I shrank palette to 4 columns and weirdness returned, last row not selectable for materials created after file was opened... BUT... if I drag and widen palette to 5 columns again last row materials immediately selectable again. Moral of story: keep palette 5 columns or wider ; ) thanks for help everyone!

    Tech, 1. Hmm, I did change something in Undo preferences a while back, I believe I deselected "Reset after Saving Project." I toggled that back on, is that what you mean? 2. OK, thanks. 3. Let me try those and I will report back. Chris, I'll try your suggestion too. thanks!

    weirdness...

    Lately a few things in formZ have not been behaving as I expect. 1. Files grow for apparently no reason: yesterday I became frustrated that it was taking (what seemed like) an unreasonably long time to save. I checked and the model file size had inexplicably grown to 68mb so I copied and pasted everything into new project and saved and the new file size had dropped to 5mb. Today the model continues to grow inexplicably so I continue to cut and paste to reduce the size. 2. Toggling: When I toggle layers on and off I have to click to gray then wait a moment then click to off. Used to be able to double-click (or at least click twice in short succession) to toggle layers, no waiting. 3. Materials Palette: when I add a new material, if the palette is set to large icons and the new material starts a new row it is not selectable. I should say it starts out selected but if I select another material and then try to select it again I can't; however if I change to list or small icon view I can select it. I have the palette set to four columns wide so if I create five new materials then the fifth is unselectable but the other four (in the row above) now are, i.e., it's the last row created that's the trouble. Since I haven't read that anyone else is having these issues I'm guessing it's something in my setup--perhaps my preferences got corrupted?--but I don't know, hopefully one of you does. iMac 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5 8 GB 1600 MHz, El Cap (10.11.3)

    form·Z pro 8.5 released!

    Thanks Rob, you're right, it is a beta. I don't know how to get to the formZ 8 SE download area, last time they sent me a link.

    form·Z pro 8.5 released!

    A few days ago, after formZ updated itself, I started getting a window telling me the software will expire on 9/11. I have attempted to re-register several times, each time a window opens reading "formZ has been successfully registered" and to click so formZ could finish the registration. On relaunch each time I get continue to get the expiration notice. I sent a note to sales but no one has responded, what do I do? thanks, Blair fZ SE v.8.5

    Yes, "triangulate" did the trick. Thank you!

    Updated to 8.5 and now exporting as .DAE works. Unfortunately the model isn't very clean when opened in SU, faces missing, any tips as to how best export? BTW, my SE license isn't working with ver 8.5, it will in a expire few a days.

    Different issue now but I thought I'd post here since it pertains to the same model. Every time I try to export as .DAE formZ crashes, not sure what's wrong.
