  1. Using the Place tool at the bottom of the Modeling tools. Once I have used the Create tool to save a MXS file of an object. The I use the Place tool to insert an object, is there any way I can go back and select another MXS file of a different object to insert into the modeling environment. Or do I have to go make and make a new MXS fle of a new object before inserting. For example, I make several MXS files of different trees (scale, size, type, etc.). Then I want to insert the different trees (MXS files) into the modeling environment. How do I select the different MXS files without creating a new MXS file each time.

    Maxwell Scatter Tool

    I have gone through this many, many times. John makes it look so simple. But when I do it at the end I have no objects displayed from the MXS files in the Fire window. AND I DON'T KNOW WHY!!! This is soon frustrating. Is there something I need to RESET, or what am I not doing correctly?

    Maxwell Scatter Tool

    Thanks for your reply. The previous forum issue on Extensions is now working fine. I can Create and Place a singular MXS file at a time. But now I have been trying to use the Scatter tool. I have followed the tutorial video offered by John Alexander of formZ, but have not gotten the same results as shown in the video. In fact, I have not had any response from using this sequence of commands. I have attached an image of John's tutorial and have been trying to place trees as he did. This is the same tree I can insert v

    Maxwell Scatter Tool

    I have followed the sequence of commands in the Webinar titled. "formZ, bonzai3d,and Maxwell together -- unleash your creativity". There is a section of this tutorial on MXS commands using the Scatter tool. I have been able to insert a singular object using the Extension tool at the bottom on the lefthand side. But when I try to use the Scatter tool in the Tool Options palette as shown in the tutorial I get NOTHING. What am I doing incorrectly?

    Plugin Extensions

    Now that I have re-booted the three icon did appear in the bottom tool bar. The icons that appeared are Place, Create & Sea. Now I need to test and learn how they work. I may be back in touch with other questions. Thanks very much, Bill

    Plugin Extensions

    No, nothing happens when I select that command. The only icon I have at the bottom of the tools menu is the Volumetric.

    Plugin Extensions

    Yes to the answer to the last two questions regarding the Display Menu and the Extensions Manager. And as far as I know yes to the latest and correct version of the plugin, but how can I confirm that I have the latest plugin? To the best of my knowledge I took the latest and current version from your download site. What are my other options? As I mentioned the plugin works in forms version 8.0, although I am having difficulty using the Scatter tool in version 8, but that is for another issue when the plugin issue is resolved.

    Plugin Extensions

    I have just installed form•Z 8.5 along with the current Maxwell plugin. when I access the new form•Z software I do not have any Extensions in the icon on the bottom left. I have tried reinstalling the Maxwell software and the Extensions but no luck. All this works fine in the form•Z 8.0 release. What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it?
