    type input bug

    Toggle input does not work on my MacPro, but works on the MacBook Pro. I deleted all preferences and setup FormZ 9.0.5. but I cannot use my TAB key to input distance to move the object after move selected. What a disappointment again... pfffff

    what's new webinar

    Yesterday I started to discover BricsCAD, and I have to say, it looks good. Their approach to get a BIM model is what I like compared to what Revit, Archicad, Vectorworks, etc. doing, because modeling is prior to a database with codes and it is working with Grasshopper as well. Maybe I will get myself a 30 day trial version. 😊 I also feel there is not much of development or news about FormZ. Since my last bugs upload to the def team, I think the latest version is poor. All the bugs and more are still in it, not solved at all. Unfortunately! This is my motivation to seek for serious alternatives.

    I have many issues with this version. Although I know it’s better to report to the support team instead to complain on the forum. It’s just too frustrating.... The main complain is that many ‘solved bugs’ just not solved at all. It’s like a tube filled with balls, representing ‘solved errors’. As soon they put another ‘solved error’ ball in this tube, at the end a ‘solved error’ falls out. This process is going on and on.... I believe there is something fundamental wrong with the process of solving problems.

    Asone, i do the same. I felt it has to do with flexibility to change habits. Always handy to be flexible... 😉 Not really complains about the UI... only complains I have about Layout, is the whole concept of layouts...
  8. I create a master layer too, works well. Interesting is you can change a layer under the master layer too. For instance I always make everything white, except the glass layer for windows. This one gets override glass material. Looks wonderful.
  9. Of course, please add it... +1
  10. Thank you for the tip!

    formZ v9.0.3 Now available

    My personal experience is I got always a respond on what I send to the support. It doesn’t mean the issue is immediately solved. ADS is doing their best I conclude about their answers.

    Being optimistic

    When Des started this thread I asked myself could I add something positive... In the beginning I thought hold on, we are talking about a commercial company ADS is and they deliver software for professionals. It should just work! And of course there will be some reasons why on this forum users get frustrated. Maybe the development team become frustrated as well. And sometimes I think I do understand why. For example I believe the concept draft/layout is just wrong, therefore maybe they are not able to fix things in a reasonable time. Anyway, today I saw a very inspiring presentation on Youtube. I know I know, it's from another company, and maybe far away from 3D modeling software. Although I doubt... The reason I add this post is to inspire the def team with ideas/concepts they could implement in FormZ or to help to get a clue why certain software just works seamlessly. So my point here is to inspire ADS dev team or anyone else on the forum to think a little bit out of the own area/box and combine solutions in a unique way. Not copy them because we are used to... The presentation made me happy! and I saw an interesting approach that could be used to make FormZ just better. Hopefully we see this post as a positive one, one that inspires.

    formZ v9.0.3 Now available

    Tech, The update speed, actually it was not updating at all, had to do with synchronizing the file in Dropbox to the MacBook. The files only stored in the cloud, will not update automatically. You have to store the files ALSO on the computer. The other issues I could not reproduce yesterday either. It's strange, anyway. Today I sent you an answer with issues ADS said they should have been solved. Unfortunately...

    Layout is a bit better, but not great... - dimensions disappear and after reopen the 2D file again, some of the missing dimensions are placed far outside the sheet in an empty area. - takes minutes before layout updates the 3D model. - 2D graphics move within the frame after reopen the 2D file. + printing is better to PDF, nice lines. + 2D looks better. Less missing lines. ADS, thank you for the update. I will continue testing...
