    clipping plane Q

    Hi, I am using v9.0.5.3 build A26A and working with clipping plane i noticed that when i have a clipping plane on, and i see the section of the building, i can not seem to snap to the points of the sectioned object. is that how it suppose to be? Thnaks
  5. Hi there, I have a win 10 pro 64 bit machine, with 64 gigs of ram, an NVidia Quadro rtx 4000, and an intel core i7-7800X, and I am using v9.0.5.3 Build A26A now, (just because people said not to upgrade yet..) The problem is that i am experiencing a lot of Lag and delay in my workflow. the whole interface and interaction with the software is slower than what used to be in V8/ has anyone experiencing this? it applies to all aspects, but mainly to picking objects, switching between tools, scroll zooming with mouse etc... and basically this means 80% of the workflow is effected by that lag. the delay is huge (about quarter of a second to switch between tools for example, or once you've picked your "Move" tool, then it takes about a quarter of a second to show on the tool options palette if it is Self or a Copy... ) and it is constant there... so it is really annoying to the point I'm thinking of switching back to the last v8. any insight on that ? Thanks
  6. FormZ website is not accessible right now. any idea why ?

    V build A26A

    Yes it is amazing how fast and smooth was 6.7 V7 was slower but gotten better towards the end (still not as fast as 6.7 was), and v8 was a bit better and v9 now had gotten really bad. and its a shame because the tools are amazing and it is more stable than 6.7, 7 and 8 together so far from my experience. hope it can get fixed soon. unfortunately i really need to have the inspector palette open while modeling to constantly check sizes and location and info of objects. but even if i turn it off, it still lags a lot. as for your suggestion, i do have Keep Textures on, but i don't see the Open Fast option, where is it supposed to be? Thanks
  8. Hi, Do anyone knows how do i manually set the x,y and especially the Z parameter of a Guide line? when i pick and object i see its parameters in the inspector info pallet, but when i pick a guide line i do not see any info. and having the guidelines behavior being odd as it is, it is very hard to move pick and move them one by one. isnt there a way to set the z to 10 for example and they all go down to z=10 ? thanks, Ariel

    Guide lines Z parameter

    Hi justin, i am working in axon, not in perspective. and yes, the snap to grid works. but still, dont the guide lines has x,y,z parameters you can manually type in like other objects?

  18. Hi there, re - FZ 8.6 and FZ 9 Can Full Shaded display ignore materials (not textures), and display the whole model in one tone for example ? and then by a click or a shortcut, have the materials applied again to the real time render ? Also, Can we shortcut the option to display Textures inside Full Shaded ? Thanks
  19. agree with you guys totaly
  20. Hi Shibui, Thanks alot. That helps alot. It is a nice workaround. Is there a chance you know of a way to Key Shortcut it ? Thanks
  21. Thank you all for the great input re that matter. Yes, it seems that mac users are in luck vs win10 users. I Think the new Inspector palette is extremely smart and efficient in terms of switching, it also saves a lot of eye movement and head turning when you are using high resolution extra wide displays, and i have been waiting for that specific feature to come out. it is an essential part of my design workflow. and i very much like to see it fixed rather than revert to the old version. ADS please see if you can get your hands on it. we are here for questions and tests. Thanks, Ariel
  22. Hi there, This is an issue i have been experiencing since almost ever, i think it became an issue when you introduced one of the older versions, 6 or 7 ... through v8 and now also in v9, and i have learned to live with it, but recently it became even worse and really interfering with the workflow. I just recently upgraded all my licenses to v9 hoped it would get resolved, but it wasn't. Anyway, It doesn't matter which model i am working on, it can be 10kb model with only two objects inside, or 100mb model with thousands of objects inside. every time i pick and object within the model (it becomes highlighted in red) and try to rotate the view, it becomes jumpy... (not a smooth motion.) once the object is deselected it all smooth again. rotating views, panning etc... once any object is picked its again become jerky and i can not rotate the view or pan smoothly. I have been using all along top of the line hardware, but it doesn't matter on which pc i am working on, it is always the same issue. also on my laptops. Currently on this specific workstation (which is the least powerful of the all) i have : Win 10 pro 64 bit Intel i7-7800X 3.5GH version. 64 GB RAM Dual - Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000 8GB version I am using 34" dell screen with 3440x1440 res Same problem accrues also on my other machines equipped with Intels i9 extreme edition, and Nvidia Quadro 6000k , 4000k, RTX 6000 etc... please see link for movie clips on YouTube of a random sample model... https://youtu.be/Ba022cvTwqQ https://youtu.be/OOvrLysrhlo Thanks, Ariel
