    Three point arc ?

    Thank you (and sigh). I did try Arc 4 and Arc 5, but maybe I was confused by the order (?). These tools didn't do what I figured that the icon suggested, but I may have misread it. At least today it works.

    Three point arc ?

    Is there a three point arc (part of a circle) function in FormZ pro 8.6? -Start point - middle point - end point. -Where the arc is drawn so that it connects to all three points (without the need for entering angles and distance to the circle center) This is something I use very often in 2D-CAD and seems very basic to me. Is there a tool like that or has it been added after 8.6?

    Copy or Duplicate Many function?

    Ahh. "Multi copy". In "Move"... -Not figuring out the right search term and not looking for it in the right place... (sigh). -Thanks!
  4. Is there a duplicate many or similar function in FormZ? I quite often need a row of many similar objects, it could be a row of holes or a row of cylinders. In my 2D CAD there is a "copy many" function, just select the object, enter how many and the distance in between them and bam there they all are, instantly! Is there a way to do this conveniently in FormZ?

    Upgrade paid, not received.

    Hi, I upgraded to formZ 8.6 Pro the 21 NOV 2018 06:06:27. I have not yet received it. I know it says "Allow up to 1 business day for digital delivery", but its now soon 3 days and I really need it! I haven't received reply via email either. Anyone know what could be the reason?

    Z by numbers sometimes inverted in "generate"

    I was told by the support that they can replicate the problem are looking into fixing the bug. I was very puzzled when I started with Bonzai several years ago, but didn't manage to find a good pattern. I just figured the the "damn" input pallet didn't honor the polarity for Z. I figured that such a fundamental issue would be by design /otherwise many others would have complanine) and blaming myself for not understanding it and that this software was almost impossible for me to work with having to constantly switch between keyboard, mouse and views. For some reason after a long pause I started using FormZ jr again and I just found the difference between tools and that it was a bit too illogical...
  7. -If I "draw" a circle with the mouse and then enter a positive Z value manually (entering a number for Z in the input palett), the shape (cylinder) will raise on top of the reference plane. As predicted. If I use "generate" to draw a cylinder, first use the mouse to place it and set the diameter, then enter a positive number for it in the input palett it draws downwards, underneath the reference plane. -Unless I first moved the mouse for Z, before entering the number. If I do it all by numbers then it will build upwards and Z works as predicted. This is especially irritating when generating objects from top view that are to raise upwards and wanting to set the height by numbers (to not having to constantly changing view, in order to work around and start Z off with the mouse to get it right). If I draw a shape I have to remember to use positive Z, but for "generate" I need inverted Z. To test it, try this: Open a new project. Set to top view. Select circle1. Place center. Draw diameter. Enter Z 2 in the input palett. Select cylinder. Place center. Draw diameter. Enter Z 2 in the input palett. Change to 3D view. I get the first one raising above and the other one going underneath the grid (Z0) I find it very confusing. Is there rational explaination? Can this behaviour be changed? It has been like this since several years (since the Bonzai days), I think. Is this just an old bug?
