  1. Setz and Alan Cooper, interesting what you wrote! i will try this later. When i have a little bit more routine with FormZ i look at the cutlist software.... EDIT: i see it is only for windows :-( But i do not build so complex furniture. The way Setz descibed is OK for me.....
  2. Tech, thank you i will try this
  3. Hi Tech this is interesting. i try this soon. So i have to arrange all boards flat next to another on a flat plane i think? Won´t the projection be distorted?
  4. Thank you Anton, i will try my luck Regards Sönke
  5. Hi Tech, thank you! i did reinstall the newest driver, tried an older one, try the custom profile for FormZ and try to change it. But no spin of the objects is possible. Only rolling like a ship in stormy sea. Looks like a drunk walks in zigzag... The extension is noticed in the extensions manager... So i think i stay with mouse and give the navigator back...
  6. Hello is there a issue with the space navigator latest driver 10.4.0 and FormZ 8.54? I use OSX 10.10.5 And there is no possibility to spin the object just roll is able. Has someone more success with this hardware/software combination?
  7. Thank you Anton. with given simple Forms there may be such "simple" solutions as written in the posts before. But i am still curious if thre is a function that can round a sharp corner and the adjacent planes on freeform models. I just created a really useless thing. Only for training... ;-) How would the expert round this highlighted corner of this freeform model? The roundtool, i expect, makes only a round corner but the adjacent planes stay flat...? I will need this later for converting a lapstrake/clinker boat to a boat with round hullform... Thanks for help
  8. I did it by hand. First i pull all boards of the cabinet away from each other. Then tryed unfold. But it unfolds all sides of the boards of course. It will be a tedious job to sort all small board sides out.. So unfold is no good option. I rotated all vertical boards to horizontal. then i use the dist. align. tool twice to rearrange the boards. I arrange them finally by hand and start to dimension them. Any suggestions for easier workflow are wellcome....
  9. Yes it helps, thank you! Still a lot to learn
  10. It works with subdiv. i converted the stepped revolved object to a polymesh. then subdiv. And then sharpen some corners 100%. But something akward occures in the upper corners. I have to play with polymesh converting settings i think. or has someone a better way?

  12. For me too ;-) Thanks a lot! But i think this method works not for other objekts wich can not be constructed this way. A tool to modifay any sharp corner and adjacent planes to smooth shapes will be nice. I will try it with subdiv.....
  13. Hi, thank you for answer. I have no Problems to arrange some parts manually. ;-) I just misunderstood the contour function viewed in the video. i thought there is a function that arrange all objects of my model on the xy plane and does NOT cut it. So i will rotate them if neccessary and arrange them by hand.
  14. Hello Anton, thank you. that sounds like a very good solution. i will try this tomorrow. Thanks a lot regards Sönke
  15. Joe, thank you! I bookmark this.That will help for special projects that may come. Models for exhibitions etc. For my cabinet and other furniture i intend to model, i need a software that does not change the parts/geometry but separate the existing parts and arrange them on a flat nesting form. May be there is some additional software for that needs? I once had seen this on a rhino workstation. But Rhino ist not so intuitive for me. It has a steep learning curve. I do not like the constructions with commands. I grew up with adobe photoshop and Illustrator. And Formz seems not to be so different in his user interface. I hope my english is not too bad an you understand my writing. ;-) Sönke
