    Tech got a reaction from TimothyTag in formZ 7 "Hot Fix" for OS X 10.10 Yosemite   
    formZ v8.0 fully supports OS X 10.10 “Yosemite” but if you are still using form•Z 7, we are releasing a “hot fix” which should generally make this compatible with OS X 10.10.  Please follow these steps (or upgrade to the current version):
     
    • Be sure that you have form•Z 7.3.4. This fix will only work for form•Z 7.3.4. If you don't have it, you can download it here:  www.formz.com/update 
    • Download libFZRT.dylib.zip. If necessary extract the zip file. You should now have a single file named “libFZRT.dylib”. 
    • Locate your formZ 7.3.4 Application folder and locate the file “libFZRT.dylib”. 
    • Replace the file in your installation with the one that you downloaded. 
    • Launch form•Z 7.3.4!

    Tech got a reaction from Pobo in [Q] FormZ 8 on White MacBook (Intel GMA 950)   
    If they are kids and only using for educational use, they could sign up for the Student Edition.  They get the choice of formZ 7 or 8 (so they can be compatible with their school -- or hardware), and v7 should run (somewhat slowly) on that computer.
     
    If you need help finding the link, just shoot us an email...

    formZ’s extensions provide a powerful set of technologies for 3D generative design, task automation, and interfacing with devices.  
    Coinciding with the release of formZ 8, we're launching a new initiative called the formZ LAB. The LAB is dedicated to unlocking the potential of formZ’s extensions for architects, designers, and artists. 

    The LAB's first tool, Profiles is ready to download today. For full details, visit the LAB blog, here:

    It's a tumblr blog, so you can follow it easily by clicking on the tumblr icon. 

    There's also a Twitter feed:
