    Bridge Tool

    Actually, after testing, I now realize that the Loft Tool functions exactly like the Bridge Tool! Works on faces and segments on smooth and non-smooth objects.

    Scripts

    Oh, and can Axial Sweep be made to work by shift clicking on multiple paths after clicking on a single source?

    Scripts

    I was looking for Batch Sweep on the website, but couldn't find it. Google found it on an "ftp.formz" address. Can the website be modified so that the scripts are easier to locate?

    Ribbed Hose UV Textured

    Found it. Nurbs Convert an axial sweep from a curve with equally spaced points.
  5. Is there a way to UV map a striped texture along a hose shaped object to make it look ribbed?
  6. I wanted to clarify my suggestion. It could be applied as one of two options: 1. Adding a Live Update or "Rubber Banding" action to the Extend tool. 2. Adding an additional option for the Reshape Tool. The Reshape Tool is a type of face extension with 2 options; "Perpendicular to Ref Plane" and "Perpendicular to Surface", I would like a third option - "Extend from Surface" where the perimeter segments would be extended pushing the face out the distance entered in the numeric input field. The limitation of the current Extend Tool is that once fired it can not be "Rubber Banded" as the reshape tool allows for. It would also be helpful to have the same "rubber banding" for the extend segment tool as well.
  7. It would be great to have an option for the Extend Tool, or better yet, a new Tool "Live Extend" that would allow for a result buffer enabling the distance for the extend to be entered, previewed and edited. I use the Reshape tool this way and would love for the Extend to have this functionality as well.

    Component sizing

    Lots of facets. Here is a smooth version with Attributes/Display Resolution set to Simple 0% (1532 faces before, 52 faces now) house-0223.Copy-2.fmz.zip

    Delete Topology

    Delete Topology does not function as it used to. Please return it's previous functionality. For example, I have this object. There is a non-planar rectangle split by an (orange) segment. I want to delete the segment and reinsert it (red) so that I can use Extend to Face on the (blue) arrow to the blue triangle to make the face planar. The problem is that when I Delete Topology on the orange segment, the two triangular faces are deleted. I know I can use Object Doctor to close the hole but it closes it with the segment back in it's original position. I can also delete the faces and draw the blue triangle, but that involves selecting more tools and snaps and is a lot more steps. I want to have the segment deleted creating a non-planar rectangle which I can then split as required. Please return the original functionality to this very useful tool. Delete Topology.fmz.zip

    A reply 1 min later? wow.
  14. ++1 with a return to simple graphics (arrows and points as in V6) so that they render faster.

    Snap Options - Suggestion

    I really like this functionality. No question about what is being snapped to. It's here: (on OSX)

    Multi Copy Count

    While Moving an Object with Multi Copy selected, what if the arrow keys could adjust the number of placements? This would allow the distance to remain live in the buffer while allowing the count to be modified?

    Snap Options - Suggestion

    When my snap scts are combined with the CMD key they become exclusive and shut off the other snaps. For example, snap to point set to CMD+F1 sets point as the snap and turns off all other snaps. When point snap is set to F1, it simply turns on and off point snap and the other snaps stay on or off as they were. My line snap is not exclusive because it is not set with a CMD modifier.

    Snap Options - Suggestion

    It's within FZ. I will verify in the morning but I think when scts are set from the sct mgr rather than from contextual clicking on the snap buttons that the snaps are exclusive. This is true for all snaps except for "Snap to Line" for some reason, maybe I set that one with the contextual menu. I'll let you know inthe morning. Cheers. Alan, I respect your workflow. I think having it as an option would be great.

    Soft Selection

    Asone, are you familiar with "falloffs" in modo? A very well implemented version of soft selections.
