  1. The first time I started to model with FormZ was late 1994. I came from an Unix HP workstation with a French 3D program called Star_UX. That software was amazing, although it only worked on Unix at the time. I bought FormZ the moment I started my own company in 1994 and remember I got completely frustrated the first 2 weeks working with my new 3D modeller FormZ. Didn't get a clue how it worked... After 2 weeks, started from scratch, bit by bit and yes! I got it. From that moment it became THE 3D modelling tool for me. Since then I am a happy FormZ user most of the time. The FormZ 3D modeller became at the end of the story my main Cad program, because it works so nicely, ...in 3D. 😊 Congratulations ADS and I am looking forward to the next version, hopefully we hear soon...

    Drafting v. Layout

    In Januari 2017 I started a thread about the alternative way how to get 2D drawings. I also hope, like many others, drawing 2D will as rock solid as the 3D is, (more or less) Hopefully ADS will think about solutions to generate 2D output the way they did when developing the 3D modelling program. The 3D environment is very well developed in my opinion. Who thinks automation is the solution, 2D drawing will automatically updates when the 3D model changed? I do not believe in it, as long as it is not rock solid. With everything that is "automatically" done for you, you do not have control anymore. I like to see we could stay in the 3D modeller, then make 2D drawings as easy as it is to model 3D. I think it's a way of thinking. FormZ 3D is wonderful, compare to many other programs. It would be interesting to see if ADS develop 2D output as simple as to use the 3D modeller. If this can be done with plugins to use other CAD programs... why not? If not... ???

    Top Ten FormZ 9 list

    ...more then a year ago for the last post in this list. 😳 I would like to see a better Information Management system with scripting. IFC import and export. Beter output options from within the 3D modeller directly to vector 3D PDF. Now I use print screen options to get nice graphic images I am using in Affinity Publisher beta to produce my 2D drawings, because Layout is... well... to limited. Since last minor update I feel FMZ is much more stable. So, stability is always on my top list. Still love the 3D modeller.. 😊
  8. ...spoken about v9. is there any news about the upcoming version?
  9. In my case: on the right of my screen I have two columns with pallets, one is the layer from top to bottom screen. This layout is not saved, after saving the preferences. After restart the program, the layer palette left top corner is in place, but the whole palette has the smallest size posible.

    Peter, If you missed the boat, why not tell your client: hey, i am ready with this! Go for the better client!

    Interior design advice

    Martin, Building up a relationship with a client is always ok, but on the other hand you have to communicate to the client what is important. Is it money driven or is it good architectural design. The whole success of the project depends on that difference. Anyway, i wish Peter all the succes he needs.
