    Palettes not showing

    Great Thanks, ill try that. One more thing though, at home i have created new tool palletes. how can i export them and import them into my workstation at the office ? Would they be exported with the export/import workspace tool?
  8. Hi, I am struggling for two weeks now with this issue and unfortunately the support on nextlimit site is exhausting... I have installed maxwell studio and render and the formz plugin. 1. RLM wont start on startup automatically. no matter what i do, it just wont. i dont have any antivirus, or firewall or anything that can prevent it from starting, but it wont. so i need to start it manually each time. 2. once i start it manually, the Studio and the Maxwell render app will start and show the license as registered. BUT form Z will ask me each time i run a render to re register. it pops up the Licenseactivator.exe and asks me to validate license each time i hit render. i chose the RLM and it shows me on the screen that it found the license and it is ok. BUT if i look at the RLM cmd window (which is open all the time in the background) i see a message saying: 7/21 22:45 (nextlimit) DENIED: (1) maxwell_bundle v4.0 to high-net@hn2763 07/21 22:45 (nextlimit) License server does not support this product and neither Studio, nor Maxwell render will open from the plug in. if i use the Maxwell fire pallet, it will pop the license activator and ask me to validate license. one i will do that, it will say that the license is invalid and close, but will still let me use the maxwell fire pallet. please i need help. i can not work ! Thanks
  9. Hi there, Thanks for the reply and links. Problem was solved. the lic file was bad. nextlimit reset my license and i re-generated lic file and it works now. Thanks
  10. Hi, just wanted to say thank you for an amazing tool ! I have been using it since start and it had gotten better and better. so Thanks again.
  11. Hi, I am using 8.6.5 and i am trying to create a set of groups and layers for a building im designing. I cant seem to create same name layers in different groups. why is that ? it is only natural to have same name folders and files inside different folders. Thanks, Ariel

    U unique Layer Naming issue

    Hi z, thanks. I think it is an essential element in organizing project files. I would sure love to see that happen. bare in mind that the mobile app (which is amazing btw) needs to be updated accordingly for it supports single layers right now. So will definitely have a conflict there. ariel
  13. Hi, after upgrading to v 8.6.x and it worked fine , suddenly my ui got reset or something... Meaning all my pallets disapeared and i can not bring them back. Hoover over tools palette no longer works. It no longer pops up the entire tools palette. And yes, i have checked an unchecked the option in settings but to avail. Any idea how to fix that?
  14. Hi there, I just noticed a new little "pause" like icon in the bottom right corner of my working window. it also changes into a "working" circular arrow icon. what is that for? is it new? I've never noticed it before. Thanks
  15. Hi there friends, I can't seem to find a definite simple answer re what would be better in terms of casual formz modeling work, and in terms of maxwell, gpu render? what card should i buy? Nvidia Quadro k6000 or would gtx1080 Ti would do a better job in a fragment of the price? all website comparison charts do not answer this simple question! and if gtx 1080 Ti really get better benchmark scores in many websites charts, then what would be the logic of spending that much money on a professional card? Thanks !!
  16. Hi there, I have downloaded Maxwell plugin 4.1.1 and installed it on formz 8.5.6 and immediately after launching the program it crashes. after several attempts to uninstall and reinstall and so... I have upgraded to 8.5.7 and downloaded new Maxwell plugin 4.1.1 and installed it. I am getting the same issue. FormZ 8.5.7 Build 9929 Crashes instantly on startup after installing the new Maxwell plugin. if I delete the Maxwell folder and bring back the Maxwell 4, it works fine. no matter what I do, if Maxwell 4.1.1 is installed, form z crashes instantly on startup. please see attached screenshot. anyone can help ??? I am in need of working and simply can't!! Thanks alot!
  17. Hi Pylon, Sorry, I was on a business trip and couldn't be in touch. I was able to work around the problem by closing the Maxwell fire palette bar and relaunching form z, and now I need to close the fire bar to be able to work smoothly and when I want to test I open it, use it and close it. this is not a good fix, however, it did work on all my windows 10 machines I was experiencing this issue. as for contacting me, sure. please do. ill send you an e-mail. Thanks!
  18. The same exact behavior happens on my desktop at home and on my laptop !!! strange. two diferent computers, two diferent networks, only same operating system.
  19. 2+3. i ve done and retied. same issue. after i launch form z, either i open a new project or open an existing old project, it opens as a grey content window (meaning i can not see the content of the window) please look at the attached screenshot. only after i move the window a little bit the content is displayed, but the program is very slow and in delay for every action. i can not render anything, because even if i draw a simple cube (and it takes about 5 minutes), when i click on the maxwell green icon on the display properties, it doesnt show the maxwell properties. it shows the former render properties. look at the attched images.. image 1 you see how i see the program when it launches (no contetnt inside the project window) image 2 you see that the content of the project window becomes visible only after i move or change the size of the project window frame. image 3 you see that even if i wanted to render, when i click on the green maxwell icon it doesnt show me the maxwell properties, and the render button is greyed out.
  20. Hi Pylon, Regarding the win 10 machines: 1. this is what i get on my laptop win 10 pro 64 bit when clicking the link you sent: (look at attached image).
  21. Hi Pylon, Thanks for the answers. ill try to do the following regarding win10 pro 64bit machines now. Re windows 7, i installed win 7 on one of my machines, and then installed form z 8.5.7 and new maxwell 4.1.1 plugin including render and disabled eset antivirus and it all works perfect ! Ill try to run it with anti virus and report back. i attach here screenshots from the win 7 machines that works perfect. thanks
  22. what is really strange is that i get the exact same behavior on my laptop!! also win10pro 64 with nvidia
  23. Hi Pylon, 1. i do not have a win 7 machine. all machines i have are Win 10 pro 64 bit, updated with the latest big update. 2. disabled all network connections. no change. same behavior. 3. disabled and completely uninstalled all antivirus, firewall, defender, express vpn, and everything that could affect. No change. same behavior. after form z launches and i either open a new project or open an old project, i see nothing on the opened window. i need to move it a little bit inside form z interface in order to view the content of the window. but then nothing works as it should. everything is slowed and delayed and some functions dont work. the second i delete the maxwell folder from the plugin folder and launch form z, everything works fine!
