    DennisA got a reaction from eyeclick in single sided textures for interiors   
    Do not use 2d face. Should be a 3d object even if 1/64th or less thick so yo can map each side separately. Note: 2D GLASS WILL not render properly.

    You should be able to bring in a layered psd file into fmz. The transparent areas will act as an alpha channel in transparent mapping. Make sure to click on match color shader & use alpha channel. Also note there should be no alpha channel in psd document for this to work.

    DennisA got a reaction from crazyask in Fmz projects into Mobile   
    Tried to get existing project into mobile viewer using both iCloud & iTunes (see screen captures "For Formz"). Both did not show up as a choice in app. I uploaded a folder containing fmz project & textures... user components were in project (they were embedded). Did I do something wrong?
    I also noticed on iCloud drive file extension was not shown. Are there any size restrictions?

    Components that are not in isolation mode Render in Renderzone. Note: they are grouped components that have a component within the component.

    Any idea how to trash a formZ Mobile Viewer Folder (323.3MB) ? There is no delete or rt click prompt. When drag to trash it just copies it. I am doing from computer.
    Am I right assuming folders with project, texture maps are to be added Mobile Viewer Documents in iTunes?

    Hello dear colleagues formziers.
     
     Allow me to offer you my FormZ modeling, rendering and design services.
     
     I am a Magister of Arts in product design working as a designer for more than 20 years. 
     
      I use FormZ since year 1996. I can create virtually any imaginary shape with it..
     Also I use in Marvelous Designer which will mostly fit your needs in designing any cloth and fabric stuff (e.g. pillows, curtains, sofas, e.t.c).
     I use Render Zone, Maxwell or Thea Render which might fit any of your rendering needs.
     
     
    Would be glad to complete any task for you in most decent way. Either this is a big or small project I will be more than happy to help you with it in part or accomplish it for you in full. I would be glad to work for you for as low as 20$/hour. First hour is not count as it is an indication of work quality if work is 6 hours or more
     
     You are welcome to take a look at my renderings and designs on my Facebook page of on the web page
     
    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me either here, or via e-mail av@re-construction.house or by Skype: ahtoh___ or a phone, if you like +7-903-765-1288 GMT+3 (Moscow, Russia)
     
     And of course you are more then welcome to download free models from my depository you could find via it`s Facebook page.
     And of course you are more than more than welcome to submit your beautiful models to this repository.
     
     
     
     Besides: I registered pretty nice domain formz.xyz and repository soon will be moved there.
     
    Regards,
    Anton Voloshin.

    DennisA reacted to DMclean in Duplicating Materials (formerly a Whine in Discussion forum )   
    When you pick a material in the Materials palette, Right Click on it and chose Duplicate, a copy of the material is created, but the original material remains selected. Wouldn't it make more sense that the duplicate is selected? Every time I do this I get caught by it. I duplicate the material then start editing the Image Map or properties and then realize that the materials in the scene are changing, when what I really want to do is change the new materials and apply it to some different objects.
     
    I usually duplicate a material because I want essentially the same material but want to make some changes and then use it, not make a copy that will remain intact while I change the original. When you Save As a model, you find yourself working in the new model, not working on the old one.
     
    In that sense I guess Duplicate behaves like Save a Copy, but it just feels counterintuitive to me.

    DennisA reacted to kmwhitt in Rounding Points   
    As stated above I am using the fit fillet/bevel tool.  This also works for me in FMZ V6.6.3.  As a workaround, I am extruding and using rounding tool and then deriving face to form surface again.  But, I would like to know why it's not working.

    DennisA got a reaction from nadir in GPU vs CPU makes rendering faster?   
    Justin... thanks for this info... I have a 12 Core Pro & was considering a new Mac Pro. Not thrilled to recently discover Renderzone gets hung up on more then 6 processors.
    I do have a OTW 5 Bay removable Sata external box & a sata card in the computer- do all my backup on it plus external time machine which get stored weekly off premise. There is also 4 data slots in the Pro for hard drives that gives me one constant Time Machine backup. Nadir you can get & SSD drive in one slot & a larger sata drive in other 3 slots... more then enough backup space.

    DennisA got a reaction from Duncan303 in Multiple Texture Maps on one Object   
    You can map each objects face with a different texture. If you are trying to get 2 maps on one face 1 over another you need to use a decal Renderzone. You can also combine them in the texture map in shaded or shaded full.
    I guess you could duplicate the face, offset it by a small amount put the transparent texture on that face & accomplish what you want (face should not cast or receive shadows)

    A way to globally change a common material across user components. Fmz6 asked. Fmz7 & 8 components are not in symbol package & each fmz project within folder needs to be opened & changed individually.
