  1. FormZ's "problem" is that basic modeling is so enjoyable. This is addictive. This is not always the case when proceeding to a more complex project. A variety of small bugs appear here and there. I use Rhino 7 and Form Z in the concept phase. Form Z is so fast that in a few minutes I can get everything I need for the concept phase! Rhino and Grasshopper are essential for non-destructive modelling. I hope ADS adds a non-destructive Boolean method to the program. It doesn’t have to be perfect and perform all situations. As long as the basic functions work. This will make FormZ more popular.
  2. Do you have plans for direct linking like in Rhino and Archicad?
  3. Hi! Does anyone have the skills to program non-destructive boolean tool for FormZ? There are interesting plugins for Blender, (Hardops and BoxCutter) and of course there is Rhino with Grasshopper. Similar tool for FormZ would be dream come true.
  4. This plugin and connection is great! I tested the plugin with Twinmotion and it works amazingly fast.

    please improve the underlay tool!

    There should be easier way to import files into FormZ - including raster images. In Sketchup you can now drag and drop all supported file types directly into your modeling window. Very nice.... but SU is not my tool. 😏

    snap - project on reference plane

    Actually there is still problem when you try to snap in 3D view: http://www.formz.com/forum/old/messages/16/61008.html Snap is ok with projection view but 3D it doesn't work like in Rhino.
  7. Hi everyone and Tech Is this option still unavailable in perspective mode? I know there is "Lock To Plane Through First Point" check box available but sometimes you need the other option too. AC

    CRASH again and again.. please help!

    I am using both FormZ and Rhino (and Archicad) on Mac. FormZ is the fastest modeller on market but I started to "program" macros for Rhino and now I have for example DubFaceborder, Offset, Split Face in same command. It is almost same with insert option in FormZ. When you want to show your basic ideas quickly nothing beats FormZ and Vray. When you are modelling complex architectural projects using blocks, Rhino is best. But I believe FormZ 9 will challenge Rhino again.

    Live Boolean - again

    In fact, Clipping Plane is true non-destructive boolean tool. It might be the starting point in this case.
  10. Are other users interested in this feature? Some programs have this option, but there is still room for improvement. I think this is the only big shortage of FormZ. In Archicad, I use the non-destructive liveboolean (or SEO=solid element operation) feature for exploring and scaling the pathways of a constructed environment and also for basic massing. But FormZ would be much faster for that kind of job. What do you think, Tech? Here are a few links that tell you more about this.

    Wow! Fantastic!

    Today I had to switch to Sketchup to use Laubwerk.... This plugin should be available for FormZ. What do you think AutoDesSys? This year perhaps?

    Sun settings not updating

    Thats true, you can't control intensity from light panel for some reason. But you can control it from VRay Settings entering values into Multiplier number box.... Actually not the same thing....hmmmm.

    Try this.

    Sun settings not updating

    The problem is with the automatically generated V-Ray sun. If you create your own light source and switch it to V-Ray sun the Sun Position works as it should.
