    Maxwell 5 for formZ - In Progress!

    Yes, that’s great news. I just got the email too. And they’re advertising it on Twitter.

    formZ models exchange site!

    That is a shame Anton but you have no choice and I completely understand. You are correct, there are many more takers than givers. Maybe Autodessys should do something for you? Thanks for all your hard work 👏

    Maxwell 5 for formZ - In Progress!

    Yes, I think the MaxwellZ 5 plugin is being rewritten or updated for FormZ9 at the moment. As soon as this is done I'll be upgrading my Maxwell 4 licenses. Like you, I'll be sticking to FormZ8.6.5 for paying projects although I have upgraded to FormZ9 for one of my licenses to play around with it. It'd be nice to get some news on how it's progressing...

    Happy Holidays!

    Many happy returns to you Bernd... I'm looking forward to this year with Fz9 and Maxwell5 (as well as integrating Vray into my workflow). Enjoy the break everyone! Des

    Problems projecting a light pattern

    Hi David, I've done this before using the Maxwell plugin projector light. To get good results the light needs to be cranked up really high and the waves map having contrast set high as well. Des

    smart model architectural plug-in

    I think if I was to go down the BIM route I'd purchase and learn an actual so called BIM package such as Vectorworks or ArchiCad. PlusSpec is very powerful and impressive for a plugin but remember that that's exactly what it is, a plugin. And expensive as well.

    Auto Save / 2d DXF Export / Color Pick

    I stopped using autosave a long time ago, I just got the habit of manually saving after I've done a certain amount of functions. It totally depends on the files I'm working on, new fresh files it works fine but with time after the file becomes big it becomes a pain so I turned it off. On a slightly different note, I believe the saving process in FormZ has suffered since Mojave (on Mac). I'm assuming it's the same in Catalina so I haven't upgraded yet. I have an older MacPro running El Capitan and FormZ with the same preferences which saves better and faster the same files so what ever Apple did since then I don't know...
  10. Now that NextLimit has stated that FormZ Maxwell plugin will still be supported and will be released in month or so, we can argue about that in a few years. 😉
  11. I'm so pleased at this news, thanks so much for sharing. I'll be upgrading so.... 😄 Des
