  1. Hello

    There are some good and some bad news for you.

     

    The good one: from now and on you can share your models on paid basis. So anyone of you who will share his/her/it`s models will get paid as soon as model will be bought.

    The bad one: from now and on models are distributed on paid basis.

    This drastic step is being made to stimulate to share the ones who did not want to do it for free.

     

    Pricing

    Pricing is more than moderate for the moment yet anyone could claim his/her/it`s/their price for the model shared. Anyway you will get 70% of retail price of model sold via this site.

     

    Models 

    All models will be provided with textures. All of them checked and well formed.

     

     

    Thinking of this I will keep my fingers crossed to see you among forms.xyz members.

     

    Best regards,

    Anton Voloshin.

    Nice Anton!  Still using Thea it looks like?  The only thing I would change would be to reduce the DOF effect, as it messes with my eyes a bit.  But that's a personal thing, the images and design are really cool!

    Thank you Justin.

    Yes I still use Thea. I don`t see any sense to switch for the moment. It is fast, stable and quite fits my needs.

    As for the DOF: I like it myself and client felt good about it. Sorry for your eyes 🙂

    Nice modelling. Do you do your own designs, or are you only producing for someone?

    Thank`s Alan.

    Yes I do my own designs. In rare cases like the one with mosque project I was doing the only modeling and rendering.


  4. 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!

    What version of FormZ do you need to run this?

    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 🙂

    Ok so here's my latest attempt. I created a new vray material using the vrmateditor, imported my original jpeg image where Diffuse Color is, imported the normals map I created in Photoshop where the Bump map goes. I probably need to adjust my scaling or blur on my normals/bump map but its definitely looking better than before.

    If I`d do it I`d pay attention to the boards ends:

  7. 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 😀

    1. Create Layout in desired scale make all you need it look good: proper views, projections sections and so on. Remember the scale
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. Open your file in FormZ 6.7 Modeling and Scale it to real values (you still remember your scale from Layout, aren`t you?)
    5. 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!

  9. 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.


  10. 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.
