  1. Justin you are correct... as per my performance post July 13, 2016 12:15:47 Xeon Mac Pro 2 x 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon (Mid 2010) OS 10.11.5 used 6 CPU 12:12:25 Xeon Mac Pro 2 x 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon (Mid 2010) OS 10.11.5 used 8 CPU 12:10:28 Xeon Mac Pro 2 x 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon (Mid 2010) OS 10.11.5 used 12 CPU 12:11:09 Xeon Mac Pro 2 x 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon (Mid 2010) OS 10.11.5 used 24 CPU Glad to see finally times down compared to earlier fmz builds took up to 1.5hrs using 24 CPU's Seems 12 CPU ad fastest time. I noticed in Activity Monitor that when 24 CPU were selected it only used 12 CPU's for about 98% of render time Like This Quote MultiQuote

    Fmz developers has to incorporate.
  3. Christian, I use Safari for my browser. I also have Firefox which I use for a Webinar that does not run on Safari. Fmz is not upgrading 6.7.3 , but if you are using 8.5 & find any problems on newer OS X, then let them know so they can investigate it. I remember when earlier Fmz had issues... they were all fixed by 6.7.3. Between you & me I generally like 8.5 better all except Component Issues compared to symbols in 6.7.3.
  4. Christian, I have same MacPro12 core on OS 10.12.1 ... Do not use formZ 6.7.3 other then to prep older projects to import into fmz8.5. I have not had any problems on this & all previous OS systems. Suggest you get an answer from tech support to confirm. You do know you will do better using only 6 of your 12 processors for your renderings.

    Components Isolation Mode

    Tech Thanks... Isolation was just a way to make the part preview render quicker & not for a saved rendition.
  6. Components that are not in isolation mode Render in Renderzone. Note: they are grouped components that have a component within the component.
  7. Have a component with component within. Making a mistake & offsetting surface component it exploded. Is this to be expected or should we get a warning?
  8. Component issues have been improving. My preference is to usr user components as multiple people in my company work on same projects with multiple files going at same time. Some component issues I just had (these are components that have a components in them...then they are within groups in fez project: 1) After closing & savings projects components moved there position. 2) After moving the group containing components they exploded.
  9. Just got new MacBook Pro maxed out-it ran a touch slower then my 24 CPU 12 core. 12:11:09 Xeon Mac Pro 2 x 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon (Mid 2010) OS 10.11.5 used 24 CPU 12:11:08 Xeon Mac Pro 2 x 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon (Mid 2010) OS 10.12.5 used 24 CPU 12:10:28 Xeon Mac Pro 2 x 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon (Mid 2010) OS 10.11.5 used 12 CPU 12:10:29 Xeon Mac Pro 2 x 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon (Mid 2010) OS 10.12.1 used 12 CPU 12:12:08 Intel MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2016) OS 10.12.1 2.9 GHz Quad Core Intel Core i7 used 8 CPU

    Starburst pattern

    Not sure why png image did not attach to last post.
  12. DennisA

    Starburst pattern

    You do not need to add blur to image... Attached is image with bump map... will that work for you? You need renderzone.
  13. DennisA

    Starburst pattern

    As Andrew suggested you can try a displacement map... or how about just a bump texture map? If the image is sharp adding a little blur may help.

    Component Door

    Did you have Facetted or Parametric checked on import of DWG?

    Component sizing

    When you place component make sure scale factor is 1. When you select placed component & check parameters in Tool Options is the scale factor 1?
  16. DennisA

    Cannot change object size

    Not sure about message but try setting File/Project Settings/Working Units to Small Lamp

    Underlay/Billboard sticky Z logo

    Post the file you are trying to load & we will give it a try.
  18. 2x's your value from autoDesSys
  19. Kindo, You realize you are allowed 2 activations with 1 license.
  20. Try the slice too. Use a line to slice. Union together keeping edges. This will give you what you want
  21. FYI my posted time 12:15:47 = 12 minutes:15 seconds
  22. Should these times also be similar results if rendered in fmz app?
