    Weird component behaviour

    Let me give you an advise: forget about component system in FormZ. It is a total mess. I tried to sort it out on on pretty complex project which resulted total rebuild of all component related modeling. Neither forum nor Support where of help since component system is faulty by design. Alas!

    Useful time wasting WIP

    You can find it at Accessory page
  5. Or let the ones of you who does not let to know there is one. It`s name Re: construction - FormZ models sharing and it is located at http://www.formz.xyz You are welcome to download models from there for free. And you are more than welcome to upload your models there. If by some accident you might want to support this site I run you can provide me with FormZ modeling, rendering or design job . As for today I added some new models in: Lamps&Lights Appliances. As usual: "If you need to have any model with textures or Maxwell/Thea materials it is going to be as low as $10 per model. If model was submitted by another user I will send a half of the amount to him/her."

    Thea for FormZ - Now Available

    Wow! I am afraid you are a little late for Thea for FormZ since it is no longer supported and distributed by Solid Iris. However let me reply: the current one 🙂

  12. Hello folks. I recently figured out how to make drafts using really nice link between Modeling and Layout with all those powerful capabilities of changing drawings while model has changed, sections e.t.c. Obviously create your model 😀 Create Layout in desired scale make all you need it look good: proper views, projections sections and so on. Remember the scale Use "Save a copy" command from File menu. Use option to save as FormZ 6.5-6.7 format. You will get a file with .fml extension. Rename .fml in Finder on Mac (or do the same on Windows). Say "Use .fmz instead of .fml" when Finder asks you to do it. Open your file in FormZ 6.7 Modeling and Scale it to real values (you still remember your scale from Layout, aren`t you?) Create new Drafting window and use Edit -> Paste from Modeling This will allow you to use benefits from both worlds Layout and awesome Drafting. Enjoy!

    Drafting v. Layout

    Hello Phanos. I have being expressing same ideas about Drafting module and huge downgrade of it towards Layout for about five years. I hope Autodessys will hear our prayers and finally fix it in FZ 9. At least in real scale part. Not telling about all the other features of Drafting module such as: Pane of any required shape, symbols system, proper hatching, proper text printing not those nearly invisible grey one, you name it. Meanwhile I have to use my 6.7 for daily drafting jobs and powerful and fluent FormZ 8 for modeling. It is good: I can quite easily switch between them.

    form•Z Anniversary | Thank You

    I use FormZ since 2.7 on my Power Mac 7200/90 16 Megs of RAM (!!) It has changed the way I was designing stuff in both good and bad ways. Yet I am grateful it exists and I can do things with it as my primary weapon of choice. And it is getting better year by year, version by version. Thank`s Autodessys.

    Picking Inside Objects

    I reported this issue a long time ago. Autodessys seem did not pay attention.
  18. Hi Andrew. If you upload a terrain model and road path I would think of it. I have an idea on how to model it yet it depends on a task. I tried to exercise on simple model and it worked for me.

    Some work in progress

    And two more.
  20. Hello there. It`s been a while since I posted any new stuff made with FormZ. So here is an oriental style caffe. Modeled in FormZ , rendered with Thea for FormZ Plugin
  21. I assume you want to have several inserted faces on the face of your big object. And you want to create them from one you already have inserted there. As far as I have an experience with FormZ it usually understands that you want to have a copy of selected geometry to be the new objects but not the parts of the objects they belonged to. I believe it is developed this way in order to be safe from creating bad geometry and still to be capable to perform tasks with selected geometry. If I would be you I`d make those faces copies as separate objects and consequently inserted them onto desired face. I understand that is not as straightforward workflow yet should do the task.
