  1. Hello everyone, I remember such an example here on the forum quite a while back, anyone have this tucked away somewhere? I have some good photos I took of Apollo 11's CM, & I'm going to try and apply them to the Smithsonian's model. Thanks, Joe
  2. Oops, try this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/x3mx5mnj6j74c30/CM-only shellV8.fmz?dl=0
  3. I pulled out the shell here & I will need to cut away the heat shield & trim away the lip running around the tunnel entrance. https://www.dropbox.com/s/rletz5uonnwaol2/CM-only shell.fmz?dl=0 Thanks John, Joe
  4. Hi John, I had a feeling that might be yours. Yes, it was indeed an ice cream cone. I would come across it once in a while in my files, but now it think it's gone. I'm thinking parametrics along with unfolding, but a UV interface would be best (wish Z had one). The model from NASM came with image maps but I could never get them imported correctly. The files are huge. Any UV interfaces stand out in your experience? Great talking to you again. Joe
  5. Thanks Andrew. I found Tech's post from 2007 but the file link is dead. The text is very helpful, file would be nice. http://www.formz.com/forum/old/messages/16/18437.html Joe

    Looks like we can now see a preview in the appearance dialog. We can now use grayscale & color images in underlays & billboards once again. Thanks Z!! Joe

    Unintended incremental saved files

    Thanks Bo, I am making adjustments, as I know the extra versions are good to have around. I Need to work hat muscle memory.
  10. I'm getting many these with auto save off, but I do have the lab extension installed (Use this rarely). Anyone else having this issue? Thanks for reading? Joe
  11. Hello everyone, I am unable to load anything except the formZ logo in this dialog, it's working in V8.6. Happens on both on my 2014 iMac & 2019 powerbook Pro. Anyone else having this trouble? Thanks for reading, Joe
  12. Thanks Guys, I was able to sort this out with Tech via email. Joe
  13. This is still an issue for me; anyone having a similar problem? Thanks, Joe
  14. Z tech, Did a quick search on this and found enough hits to think, "this is a thing", can we expect something on this? Thanks, Joe

    Derive operand tool

    This was very handy in bringing back those objects used to create the selected object without digging through ghosted or invisable items. Am I just missing it or is it gone... Thanks, Joe
  16. Hi Z, Is it possible to query the degree of a drawn ellipse? I think this might be useful when modeling from photos. An ellipse in a photo can be traced to determine the angle the original circle was photographed at. Thoughts anyone? Thanks for reading, Joe

    Query an ellipse angle.

    Nice Des, Now imagine one of these in a biker bar & two dudes start getting into it because one of them hit the ball too hard and distorted the ellipse 😎 Joe

    Query an ellipse angle.

    Thanks Chris, Thanks for your explanation & the calculator links. Was hoping ADS. might add this to the object information or Measure Quantity tool? Joe

    Rounding Question

    Always a good idea to run problem objects through the "Object Doctor". Hope this helps, Joe

    Will a solid state drive speed up saving large files?

    I know you guys know this but I'll mention it anyway. Check the undo option, default is unlimited and if for some reason, these are saving with the file, well, you know... Just thought I'd mention it. Joe

    Will a solid state drive speed up saving large files?

    Hey John, Can you share a link to these? Thanks, Joe
  22. Thanks Chris, I've had some luck with other random images, but not all that should work. I'll keep checking. Joe
  23. Thanks for the info Kim. Joe

    Why isn't formz more popular?

    Speaking of Affinity, Has anyone had any luck getting vectors out of Designer & into formZ? Thanks, Joe
