    Some interior renders

    Hi Andy. Thank you. I am afraid I do not understand your question. Best, Anton

    Modeling curved stair

    Hi Asone. That`s pretty easy: Draw a shape your stair is about and just click Stair tool.

    A pulley pendant model added. Enjoy.
  4. Hello Tech. Sorry for doubling this info. I just thought it could be useful for the others. I emailed you back with answers but unfortunately did not get any reply. Probably this is due to weekend time. In fact I tried to print with any option and nothing works. Export to PDF and vector print to PDF are producing just garbage showing the model parts that are off the content frame. Also images within layouts are disappearing on PDF. And no other app on my system is affected. Even an old FormZ Drafting module which prints the same good as it always was. Neither Illustrator nor Word or Chrome are giving as bad results as Layout does. And it happens to any file created in it. And it happened after I downloaded WIP. So believe it or not it is connected. And what I think — in some time you will write that you were able to reproduce it on one of your machines.
  5. Hello guys. Please be aware: in my case this update ruined Layout ability to print to PDF in proper way. Now my drafts look like 600x400 JPEGs with max compression. And what`s important — previous Layout is affected too. So I am unable to produce drafts at all. Please let me know if anyone have found a workaround. Best, Anton.

    Layout suggestion

    I believe that good and simple improvement to Layout would be an ability to draw and measure in real scale values. Say I do the house plan and work in scale 1:50. I start to draw a line and input 1 meter while Layout automatically inputs according scaled value of 20 mm. It could be either happen within content frame or as an option As a cherry on a pie would be a back compatibility to Modeling environment so we could use our tech drawings to make models within the native format. I believe it would solve ALL the issues with a Layout and Make it great again ©. Even in compare previous excellent Drafting module. I hope it would be heard. Best regards, Anton.
  11. I understand that I don`t need to update drawings all the time and there are workarounds and so on. But also I understand that my workflow needs and contains of drafting about 80/20 with modeling. And I need to make 2D more than 4 times than I need 3D. About the same as a majority of your customers. And since proper Drafting module is abandoned I have to do "odd" models to somehow workaround this. Also I understand if I will explode of unlink contents of frame I wont be able to draw inside of it because I have no Idea how and why to divide every single dimension of object I draw to 15 or 50 or 25 or 100 or 200 in my head WHILE I HAVE A COMPUTER in front of me. You guys decided this will be a good idea to make me to do it. You there in AutoDesSys should understand that pretty models with renders is just a fraction of any architect/designer work. Most of the time we are expressing ourselves with drafts, blueprints and tech drawings. But what I see — you are deaf to our real needs we express for years. And I foresee you will delete this message without replying to it too. Anton.
  12. Had to Force Quit Layout after 10 minutes with Polylines option. Negative speed increase. Model has just 16 000 faces. not a big deal really. Best, Anton.
  13. Did not help though. Similar file with the settings you advised loads 2-3 minutes. Does not seem to be appropriate time for this simple operation. Any news on development? Anton.

    Quick Key file

    Nothing could be easier! Save it again to wherever you want :-)

    Quick Key file

    Hi Kim. Do you mean Key Shortcuts File? Than you can save it to whatever location you like and name it whatever you want. It is really handy feature when you reset your FormZ prefs. Just go to Edit -> Key Shortcuts and hit Save Shortcuts. Name the file and you are all set. Next time you reset Prefs go there again and hit Open Key Shortcuts and locate file you saved recently. Enjoy, Anton.
  16. Thanks Hugo and Tech. Works well in a new file and made it to work in the current one. Best, Anton.
  17. Hello there. I have trouble rendering hatch pattern applied to models. The native .pat are OK while the ones downloaded from Inet are visible only in modeling. Also scale issue is not resolved yet. I wrote about it and was replied: "We will investigate this" Model Layout Files are here Best, Anton PS Sorry for duplicating my e-mail, but I did not get a reply and ерш is quite urgent.
  18. Hello. Finally I got a permission from author — architect Vlad Heiko to share this with you. This is mosque project for Arab Emirates city of Dubai. It is all modeled with FormZ and rendered with Thea Studio. It took about four month to accomplish. Anton.
  19. Hello again and happy New Year. I uploaded a file with 2D symbols I extensively use for house layouts and so you might find them useful. You may find it on Various page. It consists not only the symbols you will see on picture but a lot more. Enjoy, Anton.
  20. is definitely needs to be added. Best, Anton.
  21. My current work to show off
  22. I have been bubbling about superiority of Drafting over Layout for years. Nothing seems to be heard by ADS.

    Importing SketchUp models...

    Hi Andrew. I am really sorry but I assume no one acquitted with FormZ files sharing site as a source for good quality models in FormZ format. Best, Anton.
