    Why form•z is not popular any more:

    Actually, here my e-mail I sent to Serif and ADS on 2020.02.26. Only ADS gave me their opinion on the idea. "Dear CEO of Serif, I am writing this email because of an idea, a business idea. As an Affinity package user and being an architect/Interior Architect I also work with FormZ 3D modeller developed by Auto Des Sys (ADS) in the USA for many years. On the ADS forum (forum user Hugo) I mention frequently about the possibility of working together with Serif. Now, I thought, I write this email directly to Serif. The Affinity Publisher application is so well developed, beautiful GUI and it’s wonderful to work with. The 3D modeller Form Z made by Auto Des Sys is such a brilliant 3D modeller and also wonderful to work with. But, some tools Serif make better, much better, like Publisher. I am running my own business for more than 26 years now and when started my architect business I decided to work with the Mac for two reasons. The first one in the CAD world not many company’s (at least here in the Netherlands) worked on the Mac at that time and second the publishing/advertisement business produces the best print output. The idea to combine CAD on Mac with high publishing quality to deliver better CAD drawings, became a unique selling point within my work. CAD drawings were not really beautiful because of poor vector orientated. Still today the CAD output is limited. For this reason I believe it would be interesting for Serif and AutoDesSys to scrutinise working together. 3D modelling by FormZ and 2D layout by Affinity Publisher. Or working together to develop the GUI of the FormZ application by Serif. I believe if Affinity Publisher is able to read vector drawings on scale, most of the work is done. I hope to hear from you Kind regards / Gegroet"

    Why form•z is not popular any more:

    How interesting, this is my suggestion, more or less, in the recent past... In posts I commented I suggested to work together with Affinity, because their software/development/concept is an answer in many ways. Good to know more people know about the Affinity suite.
  4. I really like the comment Tech gave to explain about development. There are just too many people around who KNOW better and how it should be. My compliments to TECH...

    Dimension tool sooooo slow

    see this discussion page 2 for a solution.

    New update 9.0.6

    The file reduced to 9,... mb after deleting the reference file. But, the problem is still there.

    New update 9.0.6

    Turning off, makes no difference. The problem is much more complicated.

    Yes, using latest version on Mac Catalina.

    New update 9.0.6

    Is there anyone who can manage a file that is 86 Mb large working with the 9.0.6.1 version? My file has a reference file, but this one is unloaded. The file is still 86 Mb but every single click produces the spinning ball and it takes minutes and minutes before selecting the next command. If people are enthusiastic about this 9.0.6.1 version, I do not have that experience at all! I try to figure out the reason, but cannot find one. Maybe a memory leak or video card issue??? My MacPro 2013 8-core model with 64 Gb internal memory and 2 video cards AMD Firepro D500. Hopefully someone got this spinning ball issue as well and having a solution for the problem, because I am not able to deliver my product to my clients.

    Build A0D7 is slow and hangs

    Nearly a year further and the issue with the spinning ball is still going on. In my version 9.0.6.1 on Mac it is not workable anymore. It feels as if it has issues with the graphics card or a memory leak. I am completely frustrated about FMZ (already too long) because of this and other issues.

    about slow: version 9.0.6.1 is terrible! every single click, takes minutes, beach ball... not workable anymore. Not talking about all other errors..

    type input bug

    I reverted too to 9.0.4.2, although many other issues still not solved...

    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.

    FormZ 9.0.4.2

    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.

    DRAFT LAYOUT UI

    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...
  21. 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.
  22. Of course, please add it... +1

    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.
