    Form.Z file for maxwell

    Hi Cuno, You can have this simple studio setup, you just have to drop your piece of furniture into it. I wouldn't say it'll do "perfect" renders, but it's a start. You might have to re-assign the maxwell textures. I normally use multi-light, so allows playing with the lights after the render is done. Des Studio.zip

    form•Z Viewer first flight

    This looks good. It'll be handy for clients to view files etc. I would say it's fine to share the link for download so the most up to date is always available. Des

    form•Z v9.0.1 - UI Typo Inaccuracies

    I think it is the right place to point these thing out. I didn't notice up until now. Minor as they are, they can be a little annoying but I'm sure the wrinkles will be ironed out once things have settled.

    Exciting times

    With the onset of Fz9, it's variations and all the newness it brings, it is also nice to wake up to the new slick web-site too. After a time of stagnation, it makes me happy to see the new drive which I hope brings success. Well done AutoDesSys 👏 Des

    Water material

    Hi Ariel, There are a few ways to get water looking good depending on your scene. I tend to go down the Maxwell material route to save time. For example, this night pool scene is just a transparent and reflective material with a normal map, see attached. The indoor daylight pools are a transparent reflective material on modelled waves (done a long time ago before Maxwell Sea was available). BTW, excellent image John! Des Water.zip

    Hide Object

    There is. It's the 'visibility' toggle in the attributes tab. I prefer to ghost an object and then unghost it. I do that all the time when models get complicated. And then if you have a good layer setup, you can just switch them on and off as required. There is a hide object function in Revit which, according to a friend of mine, says he wishes it was never invented. Because people forget about the hidden objects all the time and they end up with bloated files.

    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...
