    Points placement bug

    Got it. Thank`s Tech.
  2. Hello there. While snap is set to intersection and my mouse is over it points are still being placed somewhere else.: https://youtu.be/A_AljsI3oAA I tried to reproduce it in a new file and found it reproducible. Best, Anton.

  4. Hi Tech. Than this tool does not make any sense to me as usually I need to build perpendicular FROM something rather than TO something. Otherwise how even possible I can figure out where my initial point in a space when I need to make line perpendicular to some point on an object? Say you want to build a skyscraper so first you need to figure out a roof center and than to project it to land you own to make foundation in order it would not fall ? That`s absolutely contrary to what it was in FZ 6 and to logic. Even meaning to make line perpendicular to another line meaning in geometry that we have a line and build another one from the first one. Do my words make sense? Best, Anton.

    Hide objects

    Hi eyeclick. Regarding this: you can either group objects in the front or place them to separate layer and turn this layer on and off whenever you need to work with objects in the back. Also you can use Clipping plane to work with objects on behind. Clipping planes are non destructive so you can turn them on and off with no consequences for you model. Best, Anton.

    Hide objects

    You can ghost or hide objects via Objects menu clicking to small eye icon to the left of tje object name or, if you are managing objects/groups vi layers you can ghost/hide them via Layers palette.

    POLANTIS import

    Hi Jean-Luc. I successfully imported several models from them. However some of models have so many geometry problems so they completely disappear after fixing with Object Doctor attempt. When the other are fine. I tried obj and fbx formats. Yet the best result I got with skp with problematic geometry though. So if I would be you I`d be careful in using free models from this site. However you are welcome to use free models from my site www.formz.xyz where all the models either created with FormZ or carefully cleaned up if imported. You might want to find out more at Facebook page. And of course you are welcome to add your models as many FormZ users do. Best, Anton.
  10. Really nice Andrea. Thank you for sharing. Anton.
  11. That makes me stick with Yosemite for as long as I can.
  12. Enjoy the new models in TVs - computers-electronics:
  13. Hi Justin. Actually yes. Those tool do some extra job: Instances (very powerful tool), focal point for DOF export scene to Studio loading Thea models which are plentily exposed at SI site. Best, Anton.
  14. I fixed Upholstery page. A couple new sofas added: Enjoy.

    Revolving nonlinear shapes error

    Oh! Really?! Thank`s a LOT Tech. It was a pain dealing with those holes for years.

    Revolving nonlinear shapes error

    Hi Bobbku Actually your source shape is not suppose to touch or intersect the object you revolve in order to avoid bed geometry (zero radius hole for instance). However in this magic case it worked for you for simple shaped object. So, if you want to create an object from source shown you need to create axe of revolution that is not touching your source object. If you don`t like resulting hole in the center you could select it with topological level "HOLE" active and hit "DELETE" or any other tool appropriate which FormZ has plenty. Enjoy, Anton.

    Steel Fabrication Drawings

    Hi Malcolm. Thank you for your opinion. Hope it is seen by AutoDesSys. HELLO AUTODESSYS! Malcolm if you have a a chance access to old FormZ You would find Drafting awesome. And in this case you would never even thought of PowerCadd. Good luck with your project. Anton.

    Steel Fabrication Drawings

    Hello malcineurope. I took a look to your model and realised that there are not too many details (19 to be exact) to make manual drafts for each of them. So you could just take all types to one surface and use either Layout or legacy FormZ for drafting. Unfortunately FomZ does not give you this all the way automated approach as it does Autocad. It is general modeling app. Which it does quite well . In your next design I would highly recommend to take a look at Profiles plugin which would give you an opportunity to make cutlists and information managements which you can`t use with free modeling. Though it does not allow you to drill holes or cut with custom angles as it is in your design. Best, Anton.

    Steel Fabrication Drawings

    Hi malcineuropeI pretty often order steel details. And all is done from within FormZ. Unfortunately Layout is not a proper tool for drafting for the moment and mostly I have to deal with legacy FormZ Drafting environment. Despite it is old it handles the job properly. If there is a chance to take a look at your design I would better understand what you are talking about. Do you work with Imperial or Metric as it is understood from your nick? Regards, Anton.
