    Forum Functionality is broken

    For some reason the function of some Forum functionalities are broken nowadays. E.g. I am not able to show up the pull down menu under my Account Name in the top right corner. Also the other buttons do not work anymore. I use Safari with MacOS High Sierra latest and latest Firefox.

    8.6 bugs

    In the latest build of FZ, unfortunately, I had to find difficulties when exporting STEP files: Basically, the STEP Esport takes a long time. If the file path is very long, the file can not be saved. I have to save on the desk. Often, FormZ freezes. It only appears the beach ball. These problems occur with different files, not just one. MacOs 10.13.6 High Sierra FormZ 8.6.2 Build 10099

    Display > scale

    +1 YES! I miss the possibility of a scaled rendering in FormZ 8 too. That was so good in Version 6 – and I have reported this to Autodessys before – without any feedback… :-(

    2D CAD functionality

    I'm used to draw very often in 2d. Either at the beginning of a project to get the proportions under control or at the end of a project to get explanatory illustrations. Unfortunately, the software tools that they have fulfilled a few years ago are disappearing with time, because they can no longer keep up with the developments of the new computer systems, or are no longer being developed further. I used to like «Graphite» from Ashlar so far. But the current version is very inadequate under High Sierra. Unfortunately, the current 2d environment of FormZ is no longer as useful for me as it was under FormZ 6. It would be great to get a simple 2d environment with version 9, which features intelligent drawing tools similar to the «Drafting Assistant» in Graphite.

    8.6 bugs

    Issues I discovered in FmZ 8.6.2 Build 10099 in MacOS 10.13.4 so far: When opening an existing Form.Z file, Form.Z makes an Auto-Save in the very first second after fully open the file. If prepicking segments with the Pick Tool, the selection is gone when changing over to the Derive Segment Tool. The Line Editing Tool is working irregularly. Especially the Trim Tool: Sometimes I can trim lines that do not cross - and sometimes they have to be lengthened manually beforehand. Trim/Splt Tool: The option «Construct result by Click Point» does not work properly. It is always the «wrong side»… Nurbs by Boundary Tool: It would be great, if the degree could be set in the Tool Options in advance. Now I have to use always the Nurbs Reconstruct Surface Tool after to adjust manually. It would be great to have a button nearby the coordinates, to set all values to zero at once. These points complete my report, which I already posted in this thread on 1. June 2018 @ 02:52 PM

    8.6 bugs

    Issues I discovered in FmZ 8.6.2 Build 10099 in MacOS 10.13.4 so far: The List of Undos just shows one entry. Never the less it is possible, to undo more than one step. But just on after the other. The Maxwell Fire Viewport (window) does not match the view of the FmZ Window or Camara (before that was better.) Working with single 2d lines is still a hassle: Sometimes it is possible to trim lines, that are not crossing on 2d plane (as intended). Sometimes they do not, and I have to extend them manually. Still I can not extend a single line to a surface. (This, and the topic above worked fine in Version 6.) The display of the points (in wireframe) slows down the speed dramatically. Sometimes the points are displayed in white (same color as my project background). Tool Manger is still faulty. E.g. a lot of Icons have the default PlugIn Icon. Extension Icons can not be placed in a collapsing palette an so on…

    Extend Segment to Surface

    In Form.Z 6.7.5 it was easily possible to extend a single segment to a surface. Now in Form.Z 8.6.2 I am not able to find a corresponding tool. Any hints…?

    form•Z 8.6 Update Released

    Hello Tech Hello Support Hello Formz That a new «general update» comes out at the end of this month (as mentioned just above) is finally good news. I beg you urgent to finally get started now and tiden up the so confused situation: 1) Mini-Updates, which are not precisely defined on your download site – and still have a big impact. 2) A user interface, whose faultiness is nothing to compare on the market. And last but not least 3) A communication policy, that really tugs at the patience of many of us users. Please, please: Finally clear up, there on the 3518 Riverside Drive..! Best greetings from Switzerland, old Europe – Cheers!

    I am sorry to disappoint you, but despite a long search I could not see any changes (or even improvements) in the UI. :-(

    8.6 bugs

    In Form.Z 8.6.0.2 I was not able to export a file in OBJ file format properly. In Form.Z 8.6.0 it worked… You may find the file HERE Working on an iMac MacOS 10.13.3 High Sierra latest version.
