    Drop Objects to a Terrain

    Thanks Justin. I think that Snap setting would work if the surface was level. Mine is inclined.

    Drop Objects to a Terrain

    Thanks Des I could not find any instructions on how to use S-Scatter in the manual. Is it possible to drop an item vertically to a surface?
  3. Is it possible to drop many objects (eg Points and other objects) to an undulating terrain surface in FZ V9?

    Terrain - Punch Hole

    Thanks Des for sharing your tips. The site that I posted will have 5 houses with roads retaining walls as well as cuts & batters. So, no doubt I will be scratching my head a lot.

    Terrain - Punch Hole

    Thank you Des I have just started practising modifying terrains and was about to give up. Onwards & upwards. Are there any other tips that you are prepared to share on this topic?

    Terrain - Punch Hole

    I want to create a number of building pads and a road within a site. I am trying to punch a hole through a terrain TIN surface with an irregular shape. A sample file is attached. Can anyone suggest the best method to do this Terrain test.fmz

    Yes I found that to be the case.

    Display Resolution of Underlays

    Never mind. I found the solution: Display Options > Shaded Work Options > > Image Textures > Increase to 4096 Underlay now displays ok.😊
  9. I am trying to create an underlay in FZ V 8/9. I am using both Billboard and New Material. However the resulting underlay is unreadable due to the resolution. The original file used for an underlay is very clear and easy to read. What can I do to make the underlay readable?
  10. Thank you ZTEK. It was under Options. Muchly appreciated.
  11. I am using Version 9.1 of Form z. I am having display issues with this version and want to try using Version 8.6 as I need to get work out. Can anyone advise me how to save a file as Version 8

    Precisely Position A Clipping Plane

    Thank you ZTEK. The reason why I couldn't precisely locate the Clipping Plane was because I was using the arrows on the extremity of the Clipping Plane to position the Clipping Plane.
  13. Is it possible to accurately position a Clipping Plane. Eg the centre of an opening. I need to do this to generate a DWG section.

    Knot Doesnt Display

    Currently running V9.1. I find that the Knot no longer displays. Is there a setting where I can turn it on. I have searched but cannot find it. Must be having a seniors moment

    Looking for a new formZ companion

    I own Vectorworks and Bricscad. Another economical alternative which I recently found is QCAD. So far it appears to be very capable. Especially for the straight forward projects
