    Nvidia GPU on Mac

    Really?? The new Mac Pro with support for 2x dual-gpus should work well for 3D artist 🙂 Personally is use Maxwell and Corona on Mac - both CPU, but the latter very fast. For Maxwell I render on Rebus which means I can have high res Maxwell renders ready in as little as 10 minutes. Sure it costs, but so does Nvidia GPU's. Redshift (coming soon) and Pro Render (AMD's) both support GPU rendering on Mac, so sure Next Limit could have as well. The lack of Nvidia support on Mac is very annoying, agreed. It would open up a lot of possibilities, but it's not just on Apple... https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1052991-apple-and-nvidia-a-sad-story-for-apple-users/
  2. From Maxwell website, about version 5... INTEGRATIONS Maxwell 5 is seamlessly integrated in most of the major 3D/CAD software solutions such as Rhino, SketchUp, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3ds Max, Revit, ArchiCAD, Cinema 4D and formZ.

    Nvidia GPU on Mac

    Has anyone had success using an eGPU with Nvidia cards on Mac?
  4. Dont forget to drop NL a line on their forum, if you haven't already... https://forum.maxwellrender.com/viewtopic.php?f=149&t=45454 The last email from NL (October 23.) says "*Form Z development is still under revision.", so there should be a good chance, if we let them know.
  5. I would. $100+, sure. It’s way better than not having to switch the modelling and/or renderer that I prefer and have years of experience with. What is the approximate time/cost involved in updating and maintaining the plugin - does anyone know?
  6. Thank you Ben. I sure hope you will hear back from NL soon. I would be very sad not to have Maxwell support for upcoming versions of formZ. Actually, I will probably switch to C4D to be able to keep using future versions of Maxwell – so it's formZ I would be missing. Been a Z user since the early 90's 😢
  7. Maxwell support i a necessity for me too.
  8. I believe all apps are required to be 64 bit!

    Cars for Maxwell

    Thanks Des. I was thinking i would do the same thing. Just wanted to make sure i that i havent overlooked any other car resources out there first. Thanks for the tips on the format and workflow. That will definitely save me an hour or so 🙂 best regards Anders

    Cars for Maxwell

    I am looking for cars in .mxs format for positioning in architectural visualisations. Dosch design has some from 2008, but that's not looking very fresh. Any idea where I can find this?

    I have had the same problem for some time.
  12. When drawing a rectangle etc. on another surface, clicking shift toggles "Insert" on/off in the Tool options palette. I use the shift key for lots of other shortcuts and therefor often does this unintentionally. Is there anyway to disable the shift key/insert toggle?

    Fire stopped working

    Problem solves. Had both formz 8.5 and 8.6 installed. My preferences pointed to the plugins folder of both versions. This wasn't a problem until the update. I deleted 8.5 and now Fire works again. ...I least I think that was the cause. I'm just happy it works again. Don't know what I'd do without Fire.

    Fire stopped working

    It happens with any project. Both with my usual template file and with the default Z one.
