    Maxwell 5.2 Released!

    If i bring the old "maxwell render 5" folder back containing 5.1 everything works fine. But with 5.1 When i bring 5.2 into the exact same folder i get the error attached above. I checked the pylon maxwell plugin in FormZ in at might be calling for the 5.1 and cant run 5.2? Thats why Im asking if others upgraded succesfully.

    Maxwell 5.2 Released!

    I replaced the previous maxwell 5 folder with the new installation (made a copy of the older 5.1) So the search path is the same as before: "system/applications/maxwell render 5" Im running Form Z pro v 9.1.0 (Build A399)

    Maxwell 5.2 Released!

    Upgraded Maxwell from 5.1 to 5.2 but FormZ wont regonize it. Do we need to upgrade the plugin as well. And has anyone had luck finding that?
  6. Thank you so much for your help. Received a code from support so got it working before I saw your reply.
  7. No matter how I try to disable firewalls or use different internet connections, Wifi, cellular and ethernet Cable. I get; "a connection to the internet is required in order to register" when I try to register the software, what is happening?
  8. Really hoped for that to work. Created new file from splash screen, but it didnt help
  9. Anybody that had the same problem? Installed on friday so no support yet, would really appreciate to be able to start working in version 9.
  10. Thank you Chris, did both, just to try all options

  12. Hi Ive spend hours trying to figure out why I cant see shadows cast from "HighGradeGlass" properly when looking through "HighGradeGlass" (see image) The shadows cast from the glass get all black when wieved through the glass. I can get around it by using AGS but Im loosing detail on the shadows and reflections by doing so. How can i get proper shadows when looking through the glass? Kristoffer

    Shadows through "HighGradeGlass"

    Hi, Hiding from GI is part of the "work-around" and then having an additional object with AGS that is hidden to the camera, casting the shadows. But it seems wrong that I cant use the proper shadows cast from "HighGradeGlass" because they cant be seen through the glass itself? Kristoffer

    Shadows through "HighGradeGlass"

    Do you want a FMZ or MXI file? attached a render of the panes/blocks

    Shadows through "HighGradeGlass"

    Each sheet in the dome is modelled as a solid with a thickness of 6mm. (like the real thing) I tryed the same render with simple blocks, and got the same problem

    RAM question

    Tech how can it be that when working on a file for a long time it becomes "heavy"? When a model has been worked on for a while, the undo and the copy/paste actions becomes very slow, and the memory usage of the project becomes way too high (Activity Monitor). eventually making the file unusable and even un-openable! I have limited undos and enabled reset undos when saving. It seems like it might be the empty-clipboard option missing. ​Im working around it by copying all geometry into a new scene, but im doing this for the fourth time now with one project.... Where does this heaviness come from, and is there a way to reset Clipboard/undos/etc. for a file?
  19. I was using the 3 point circle tool all the time in formZ 6.5. And very important the tools ability to draw a circle on any plane the was defined by the three points snapped to. Now in 8.5 it locks the reference plane at the first click and my work-around it is to define the plane beforehand. I always saw it as a strength for this tool that established the plane on its own, since the geometry is defined by three points. I am now doing double the work, and no matter what key I hit or f5 its stuck on lock reference plane. Is there a way to enable the 3-point-circle tool and the 3-point-rectangle tool not to draw the second and third point on the reference plane locked by the first click, but be able to snap anywhere in the model?
  20. Hi im back again... and again I must express how awesome it is that you are "listening", tech. I think we can save the skype meeting for later, therefor I have listed some things that I think could be addressed : - The 3-point circle/rectangel we talked about, being able to un-lock the reference plane - The possibility to write simple math in the prompt ex. 3207,34mm/2 ( distance /2 or +2 or x2 or -2) Illustrator has this functionality and it saves time. - Toggle layers more snappy, it takes a lot longer to turn layers of and on in the new formZ - Scale parts of object (face,segment) with the measure tool. (absolutely awesome that you have made it possible to scale with the measure tool. - Assigning material density to materials, makes it easier to work weight. in stead of only being able to assign it to an object measure. - The possibility to use the "project" tool on smooth objects without the projected geometri becoming facettet - In formZ 6.5 the cursor lost its ability to turn white/bright on dark backgrounds with the el capitan update for mac - I have attached a photo of a face-meet-tool that i have dreamt about for a long time - grasshopper plugin for formz (of course, and I know its not on your table only) - UV maps, did the "bake uv map" disappear? Really need to be able to create proper UV maps for texturing I have to say thumbs up for the new interface, its way more intuitive, and the are many really well thought new features! I have only worked with it a short time now but I would love to catch up in future when i have used it extensively Best Regards Kristoffer

    Export Text DWG

    Im experiencing troubles with the dwg-export. I can't export text objects without loosing the edibility

    Export Text DWG

    Tech, thanks for the link! All my exports work better with the back-date... Text is still text, line widths export to illustrator again, and circles keep their parameters as cirkles for inc cutting (dwg) Im really glad that you answer so swift and help when its really needed. Good luck with programming for the next update....

    Export Text DWG

    ...when re-importing the dwg back into FormZ, the text is also un-editible, so its the export and not an issue with the Illustrator-import

    Export Text DWG

    I have tried export in every way, dwg, fbx, dwg-image, illustrator-image and pdf-image. In earlier versions of formZ, you could have 2d text (surface) that through dwg export were still editable in illustrator. Now all text becomes objects no matter what I do, and I loose the edibility in Illustrator. I even copied the dwg export settings from FormZ 6.5 that exported the text as text. Is there a way around?

    Intersection snap

    FormZ 8.5 seems to be able to show a preview of two intersecting 3d curves. It might not be a "true" intersection, but it does show a preview. I really want to snap to this preview but am not allowed to. When i draw a "true" intersection its very easy to snap to the snap-preview. Is there anyway to get to be able to snap to the preview?
