    Underlay/Billboard resolution

    That would be a first for me but I'll check when I get home. Thanks.
  2. Years ago we had issues relating to the resolution of these images and subsequent resizing in the program. This was fixed eventually. Now I seem to be having problems again. Measuring one dimension is spot on (diagonal) after resizing with the measure tool, but a horizontal reading is off. I'm using .gif images (maybe I should stick with tiffs or jpgs) Is anyone else experiencing a similar situation? Thanks everyone, Joe

    Never had to check this before, not quite sure I understand your question. Thanks, Joe

    Pylon Technical old plugin

    I miss the Sliders in the lights pallet. Thanks for the memories Ben. Joe
  6. Tech and Forum, I'm using an Apple optical wired mouse on a new iMac at 10.10.3. My problem is the curser jumps and wonders on its own. If anyone has had this issue and/or has a fix for this problem, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks for reading. Joe
  7. Well the paper mouse pad from Setz has solved the problem 100%. my next mouse however, will be something from Logitech. Thanks again to all. Joe
  8. Thanks everyone,I will get a new mouse. Like Setz I need to replace this Apple mouse once in a while, but I do like the little ball. Setz's paper mouse pad solution may be just what I needed after all, Thank you Setz! I'll try this, and it should do till I get to try the other mice. Joe
  9. I had one for a while but the scroll wheel clicked as it rotated, this makes zooming wonky. I liked the apple mouse because it was much smoother than the Logitech. But this has been quite a while now, sure things have improved. Any model recommendations? Thanks, Joe
  10. Hi All, Same thing with another mouse of the same type. I've reduced the scrolling speed and so far so good. I'll try tracking speed next. Will report back. Thanks, Joe
  11. Dennis, I went the Google route a while back but nothing seems to work.

    Rounding on a cone.

    Okay thanks Z.

    Rounding on a cone.

    Tech, Shouldn't we expect the rounding tool to put a radius on the point of a cone? Thanks, Joe
  14. Ah yes, the virtual real estate market, love it.
  15. Any one in the area interested in starting a group please PM me. Thanks, Joe

    Can we get default planes back?

    "but it probably should change the plane there too." This should apply to the Aux. Plane Projection Views as well if it doesn't already. (not home now to check). Thanks, Joe
  17. Z, When deriving wires from a surface to make new surface, I am unable to stitch the resulting surface to the original (surface). I find the display resolution of the derived wires does not match the original object (which I expect it should). When I go back and adjust these resolutions to match the original surface, I am then able to stitch. Thanks, Joe

    Water flowing animation

    Maybe you can try a projector light with a video clip of some stock water footage. Joe

    Area Light - FormZ 6.7 (Old Skool)

    Rmulley, You can use a glow map as an alternative without using a light at all. Joe.

    Zoom In by Frame

    Vpete, I'm not at my computer to see which one it is, but try adding an option or shift key when dragging. One of those will work. Joe

    Frequently asked questions

    Thanks Z, I knew you had something up your sleeve. I'd like to eventually 3D print vacuform tooling. Anyone on the forum have experience with this? Thanks, Joe.
  24. Z, Will this section be returning to your web site soon? Thanks, Joe

    Frequently asked questions

    Hey Z, Thanks for getting back, I've been away from formZ for a while spending time in my shop. (I built a vacuform machine, among other things) I like to go over the basics in the FAQ and to recall the tips and tricks I've let slip away. This is also why I like the golden nuggets. I look forward to reading them again. Thanks, Joe
