  1. I'm having a world of problems with v9.2.1! Since the covid pandemic I've had to expand the range of items that I work on and now make 3d printed tooling parts. My work flow is to use illustrator to generate the 2d drawings from which to derive the modelled elements in Formz. Man I'm finding it increasingly difficult due to problems within FormZ, trims that won't work (ID = SM.11:)and boolean operations that basically delete both objects which I suspect is due to previous operations causing issues with the model. I've used object doctor to no avail as it's informing of no issues but if you look at the model you can find defects that are then impossible to fix (see attached image)? Any help or work arounds for these kind of issues would be much appreciated.

    Form Z pro v9.0.0.2 issues

    I have managed to replicate the issue, if I move a palette or drag one from the dock then I get the tool manager not appearing issue.

    Form Z pro v9.0.0.2 issues

    The tools pop up issue seems to have evaporated with I'm using v9.0.0.3 on windows 10 1909, I had several lock ups yesterday but it's not creating any log files to send to your guys?

    Form Z pro v9.0.0.2 issues

    Also it locks up and crashes at least twice a day! Very frustrating even with autosave on. I'm having to roll back to v8. Not a happy camper.

    Form Z pro v9.0.0.2 issues

    V9. and I have the favourite tools set to pop up using the space bar but it will suddenly stop working and just flash the favourite tools on the screen when pressed. I then have to restart Form Z to get it to work again.

    Form Z pro v9.0.0.2 issues

    V9.0.0.3 Strange issues on creating a new project. Created a new project to copy and paste into ended up with multiple instances that cannot be selected.
  8. You cannot drag an object into a group in the objects pallette. WIndows 10 1909
  9. Hi All, I'm trying to use the component system and I was hoping someone could shed some light on some behaviour. I've created 2 components (test1 and test2) and placed 3 copies of each in the scene. When I move an instance of test2 it moves as expected to the new location. If I try to move test1 it moves all 3 of the copies? Is this just BUGGY behaviour or am i missing something again? Cheers SJJ Update: I'd say bugs a plenty Formz has crashed again and again
  10. Cheers guys but the other issue it that if i export as facetted the assembly comes thru as one component in sketchup. I did a bit of digging and it seems sketchup imports with a limited amount of curve segment steps, so the solution is to subdivide the curves by adding points to the original vectors. On import to Sketchup you get clean curves and geometry and each part is it's own component.
  11. Hi, I'm trying to export a cabinet model to Sketchup for panel layout purposes, so i'm exporting with the following options in the image. The panel looks fine in FormZ but when imported into Sketchup the amount of segments in the curve is massively reduced and therefore unusable? Does anyone know a way to negate/fix this? Cheers SJJ

    DAE export scale issue

    Scratch that thanks to allanjl's post I have to export in inches as there is obviously a bug when using mm for export
  13. Hi All, I'm having a weird scale issue when exporting as .DAE files, when i import them into Sketchup (yes that old chestnut!) they are 25.4 times bigger? I'm exporting as mm and importing into a mm based project. When i export/import as a dwg/dxf with the same settings all is correct (though the objects then have other issues hence use of .DAE) Anybody have a clue im using 8.6.5 on windows build 10275 and the files are being opened in Sketchup 2018? Thanks in advance SJ
  14. Does anyone know how to do this? I want to roll back to an earlier version (windows) has given me a weird slow down and a host of other quirks. Using the formz uninstall leaves files all over the place! I just don't fancy a full format and start again. Cheers
