    f700es reacted to DanM in Why form•z is not popular any more:   
    I guess you're more into architecture where usually the geometry is simpler so I can see how FZ is capable enough to edit the design along as you go. But for industrial design it is very limiting and time consuming to go back, finding the ghosted objects and edit the shape. Sometimes  I feel that the design is compromised because I need to meet my deadline. I don't think that History based modeling is the only way to go. Since FZ is more a designer tool, direct parametric editing would be much better. But ADS doesn't offer any kind of solution, and it seems that they are not going to in the future.

    absolutely! - the best are the new nvidia RTX 3090 cards and will make nervy fly - only caveat is that if you have a Mac forget it!

    I agree completely, but man are you going to get some flak for saying this.  Apple products continue their cult like following in spite of everything.

    If Mac is dropped I would also drop FormZ.  The LAST thing FormZ should do is pander to an utterly inferior OS.  All the savings from a faster GPU would be wasted dealing with windows.  Especially once the new iMac and MacPro's running M chips are released!
    I willing to bet FormZ's users are more Mac based than your 90/10 split.
    I can't take seriously everyone whining about the look of the UI who runs Windows.

    In terms of AutoDesSys' products what keeps formZ competitive in the rendering arena is their V-Ray plug-in.  Interestingly what makes V-Ray powerful is it's support for NVIDIA - CUDA and RTX, and neither of these technologies is available on the Mac.  PC's are 90% of the market, Macs are 10%.
    As long as AutoDesSys continues to support the Mac it means every time they write code they have to write it twice, and test it twice, and ensure cross platform compatibility of the file formats.  So, it stands to reason that formZ could innovate twice as fast if their software engineering effort was cut by 50%.  Considering advanced rendering technologies are only available on Windows it is clearly the platform that must survive.
    As I said, you won't like to hear this, but the truth is that if you want formZ to innovate faster then dropping support for the Mac would go a long way to accomplishing this goal.

    Form Z already has a free Student Edition. It's ALSO the full edition. Trimble does not offer a full free student edition of SketchUP, theirs is $55/yr.
