    Tech got a reaction from ¢hris £und in Question: Rotate to Grid Snap   
    Hi Chris,
     
    Yes, Command Space is the default key shortcut for creating a temporary guide -- but Apple has also recently added that key shortcut as a Spotlight Search, so if you have that Apple shortcut set, it will execute that function instead of the one defined in formZ.  If you want to keep that as your Spotlight Search, you can set a different shortcut for formZ via the Edit Menu: Key Shortcuts:

    Hi David,
     
    How about if we add an option to the View Palette: Context Menu for Update View.  Then you can right click on the name of any view, choose that command, and it will then be resaved with the current view parameters.  Would that do what you want?

    Friday, August 28, 1:00pm-2:00pm EDT (17:00-18:00 GMT)
     
    Add a new unique twist to your 3D design using the generative tools in form·Z as we demonstrate the Voronoi Diagram, Delaunay Triangulation, Point Scatter, Surface Scatter, Volume Scatter, Wrap and Parametric Map modeling tools. These tools have practical and theoretical applications in a large number of science and technology fields and have very desirable artistic characteristics. We’ll see how they can be used together along with other form·Z tools to generate complex organic forms and design structures in a fun and intuitive way. You’ll also see how these forms are fabrication ready for 3D printing. Any design professional who wants to enhance their design to include a variety of spawning, scattering, cel! l diagram and parametric map based form generation will be interested in this topic.

    Hi Gentlemen,
     
    The download link would allow you to access the Trial for 8.5 but it would not let you open your existing files until after it is registered.  If you would like the download link, just email us and we will send it to you.  We are currently processing thousands of upgrades, and this will take a few days to complete.  If you meet the requirements for the free upgrade, you should receive your codes and the link later this week.

    Tech got a reaction from Surfnturf in form·Z pro 8.5 released!   
    ( form·Z Family plan members will receive their upgrade in a few days )
     
    form·Z pro 8.5 released!   form·Z pro v8.5 introduces a new suite of creative design tools to enhance form generation. These tools offer a variety of ways to create new and interesting forms especially when combined with each other. These tools also work well with many existing form·Z pro tools like subdivision surfaces and deformations to make even more interesting forms. This new tools suite includes: Voronoi Diagram, Point Scatter, Surface Scatter, Volume Scatter, Parametric Map, Wrap, and Delaunay Triangulation.

    The form·Z pro Layout environment has been migrated to its own app. The new form·Z pro Layout app includes numerous improvements plus a title block feature including a library of ready to use title blocks. The title block feature can auto-fill commonly used title block text from a user defined dictionary.

    form·Z pro v8.5 includes an interface for the Augment reality app. With Augment, you can visualize your form·Z models in real world settings, at real size, in real time on OS X and Android mobile devices. See www.augmentedev.com for more details.

    Tech got a reaction from ¢hris £und in Sub-D Modeling: Insert Sequence Snap   
    Hi Skip and Chris,
     
    Thanks for your suggestions and reports, we will see if these features can be added for the future.  For now the solution is to use the Subdivision Swap command to restore the original cage, and use the regular modeling tools with that to achieve what you want.  Then you can Swap back the SubD object to get the desired results.  (Of course this is an extra step and doesn't allow you to dynamically see the results, so we will see what we can do for the future.)
