    1st Maxwell Render

    Hi Andyb. What I`d suggest is a backlight in order to light up those black-dark areas of your render. Also it would help to eliminate noise from bouncing light areas. You might want to check Photography techniques to speed-up interior renders Best, Anton.

    Corporate Cinema Hall

    Hi Markus. It is bright just in order to show all the stuff in the hall. Of course you right — in reality it is going to be way too darker. Thea. It had become my the only renderer. When I got to use to it`s not as Maxwell elegant interface. I tried to point to some design faults in it but the guys from Solid Iris seem to be too techy to pay attention. Also they used to work with PCs where everything is ugly so they don`t care. Not to mention that Thea is bright solution for any kind of rendering needs. It lacks some features (grass for instance) yet there are workarounds. Best, Anton.

    Stairs tool

    Hi there. I want to suggest Stairs tool improvements: custom created columns custom profile options for columns placement (such as every step, distance, two per step e.t.c.) option to have railing on one side only Best, Anton.

    Stairs tool

    Another improvement of tool: when tiles (steps) option is selected there is no chance to adjust stairs hight manually as it gets taller by tile thickness. Please fix this.

    Steel Fabrication Drawings

    Hi Ivsim. Than you might understand that joke with my nick on forum. I know exactly where Bulgaria is. Even went there with a car for vacation once. And fell in love with your country and people. Good to see bugarian here at FormZ forum. If there is any help needed — you are welcome. Best, Anton.
  17. Hi Josh. What a beautiful project! May I share it on my Pinterest board for geodesic houses? Speaking trees: it is definitely Xfrog. If you are unlucky PC user there is an app for that. If you are happy Mac user there is not but you still can buy plants models from them. The only small tweak is to assign black to transparent in leafs materials. After that you will have pretty realistic plants. And they have a lot of free stuff. In Thea forum you mignt also find good trees models in Thea model format for use as proxies. As for the cars: you can find good ones at Turbosquid and posiibly for less money at CGTrader. I myself found plenty of them at 3D Warehouse and converted them to FZ format. And definitely you will find lots of yseful models at my FormZ files repository formz.xyz where you can not only download them but also share your files with the others. When it comes to rendering engine there are even 3 decent options nowdays: Maxwell, Thea and V-Ray. Two last are in beta. However Thea is pretty mature. There is not a big deal to learn any of them as they are more or less similar in approach. Depending on what computing power you have and how deep is your pocket you may use anyone. Maxwell is most simple in setup IMHO while Thea is most flexible and requires less resources. Best, Anton

    Steel Fabrication Drawings

    Hi ivsim. When I need something really complex in drafting I can`t rely on 8.5 and I pull out my old good friend 6.6.5. That`s what I did for decades — I made my drafts and used imagination. I am afraid it is kind of tricky for to get 6.7.5 as it is no longer for sale by AutoDesSys. Another bad thing about it: it works only with hardware key. Lucky us, old users, ADS generously allowed us to continue use this old and noble tool. However it would not be fair to mention that modeling since v7 is giant leap forward. I wish one day dream of merge of both worlds become true . Best, Anton. P.S. What country are you from?

    Hidden line hatch bug

    Hello Tech. I did not have any intension to have center of interest being moved outside the object. I closed up to 0,0,0 by moving my Space Navigator from default FZ location and got that effect. Best, Anton.
  21. Also crash report button invokes e-mail via browser and hence makes impossible to send them [reports]
  22. Found it! It is in Mail app General preferences. Thank`s anyway. Best, Anton.
  23. Hi Tech. I wish I have an idea where is that switch in Mac OS that assigns Mail as default program for e-mailing. Anyway I did not yank it for purpose It only happened after FZ 8.5.6 Best, Anton.
