    Texture mapping

    Us Lefties have been ahead of the game all along.

    Texture mapping

    The "decal map" thing is laughable. I feel like I stepped back in time.

    CRASH again and again.. please help!

    "Components are too buggy to use at this point, and should be abandoned until we get a solid upgrade there." Bravo!

    CRASH again and again.. please help!

    I think my computer would crash if I even mentioned a 1.3 gb file.

    MAYDAY! MAYDAY!

    I have warned my co-workers numerous times about using components but they won't listen. I got bit early on and have never used then since. Absolute disaster waiting to happen.

    sub D help

    I am 100% certain your problems are caused by the triangulated geometry. I realize that in a couple of the sub-d tutorials FZ shows using triangles, but I never use them for 2 main reasons: 1. They tend to cause “pinched” geometry (especially on corners and edges). 2. You can’t sub-divide triangles any further, so you essentially paint yourself into a corner. I have attached a little guide that I did for one of my co-workers, to help them understand what causes triangles and how to avoid them. Maybe it will be of help to you.

    sub D help

    Just a quick glance tells me it's all those triangles in your mesh. In general, I try to avoid them in favor of 4 side polygons. I am slammed today but tomorrow I might get time to fiddle with it.

    FZ fails to launch on Mac OS Sierra 10.13.4

    I installed the MacOS 10.13.4 update this morning and so far everything seems to be ok.

    FZ fails to launch on Mac OS Sierra 10.13.4

    I haven't updated yet, and now I am afraid to. I have too much work to risk having a problem.

    "Smooth Modelling Error"

    Yes it is. I did a complete shut down and restart of the computer. For now it's ok. It was also crashing when I attempted to use the "move" tool. This was on an existing model that I had used many times before without issue.

    "Smooth Modelling Error"

    I am STILL getting the error. I downloaded the newest build yesterday

    Cannot Zoom in the Cone of Vision except Top View

    Edit: 3 views not 4. Front, top, and side.

    Cannot Zoom in the Cone of Vision except Top View

    It's working for me in all 4 views with the scrollwheel. I have a Logitech M510, and I haven't updated the driver in quite a while.

    groups vs booleans

    When you say you can't group objects do you mean no actual group is created, or is it that you create a group but the individual objects are still being selected? If it's the latter, then you might simply need to deselect "unlock groups" under the edit menu. I have been using FZ since V7, and the grouping command is one thing I don't ever recall having a problem with.

    8.6 bugs

    Yes, 10027. Excuse my typo. In any case STILL buggy.

    8.6 bugs

    Kim, Did you do the "update" or the "full download"? The updater was still linked to 10017 and the full download was to 10025 (which STILL has some bugs, but not as bad).

    FZ future

    They are a tiny company in an industry that lives or dies on new users. That's just a fact. So they either have to recruit first time users, or convince people to switch from another platform. ​In either case they better have something really stellar to offer, and at least play well with other file formats, so the the back and forth is not a big hassle. Just my .02¢ That and $5.00 will get you a small coffee at Starbucks.

    8.6 bugs

    The general reaction I get when I tell someone my company uses FZ is "what?". Most people have never even heard of it.

    I can't help but think it all comes down to developmental $$$.

    Cylindrical mapping problems

    I have worked in (4) 3D apps and I find FZ's mapping to be the worst. Yes, the cylinder map is sketchy at best. The entire "decal" map thing need to be scrapped as well. Having to go into that archaic little workspace, and then not being able to see the map until it's rendered is pitiful.
  24. I am using build 10027 which is supposed to be better than 10025.......... however I have encountered an issue that is ongoing with even an empty project. Whenever I tray to pull the "objects" pallet from the pallet dock onto the workspace, the "object pallet" becomes sort of transparent and freezes. The program itself does not lock up, but in order to restore the "object pallet" to functionality I have to restart the app. This is repeatable 100% of the time even with a completely empty modeling window. This was for sure not happening with 8.5.7

    8.6 bugs

    Snow, You were correct. The "update" downloads the buggy 10025, while the "full install" downloads "10027". I sent an email to FZ Support about this, and they committed to do a better job of identifying the builds included in the downloads.
