    Layout fonts outlined

    Oh I have the same problem and I was apologizing just yesterday to my CNC guy. I feel like I battle Layout evefrytime I have to produce a drawing for production and just when I think I've got it figured out it throws up some weird shit that wants me to throw my laptop out the window!

    This stood out for me.... I've been trying to get a texture to be reflected in something but still have a white background but it never worked for me so I'm just wondering what this is actually for....

    Been quiet in here lately....
  4. oh boy, glad I haven't upgraded yet.... this would stress me out no end in the middle of a project.
  5. Is it working with Vray ok too ?

    FormZ & Catalina

    I just saw that Catalina was released today.... Does it play nice with FormZ ? Should I wait a bit until I upgrade ?

    This is great.... how did you do the texturing on the rope handle ?

    Something I did a while ago but finally got manufactured so it's out in public now.... Design and Rendering by me. I still can't quite figure out a pure white floor and background but with nice soft shadows though.

    Piano WIP

    Very nice!
  10. I have a zoomed in section of my model and I want to move the frame contents so the part of the model I want to dimension is visible within the frame. In the tutorial video when the frame contents is picked the model model is selected and turns red and is moved around inside the frame. However, when I go to pick frame contents I am only able to pick elements of the model so when I moved them it ruins my drawing. How do I moved the model around inside a zoomed in frame ? Pics below....
  11. I've had to use Layout finally to get some simple elevations done for a client but when I print them and export to pdf all the text is blurred (see screen shot below) Anything I can do ? Didn't there used to be a 'stick font' option for drafting in FormZ ?

    Jaako, Where did you get that 3D model of the girl from ? I do a lot of retail work and would love to add a proper 3D person.

    Layout - Blurred Text in PDF

    I figured it out in case anyone else has the same problem... In the plot/print dialogue box check "Vector Output" and "Use Print Line Weights" Click "Print..." Move slider to "Best"

    Export for CNC paths

    I'm working on a cabinet design with everything CNC'd out of sheet plywood. I've tried exporting the model as flat outlines but my CNC guy is having to re-draw the panels because me files contain a lot of lines so he's had to clean it all up. What's the best way to get a nice clean file to him to out into his CNC software ? Thanks!

    I did the same with the cabinet and plant pot too.... raised them about 1/8" off the ground.

    Just used mainly Vray materials. It's a simple plane light.... and I modelled a simple room around it. The thing that made the biggest difference I feel though was creating a tiny gap along the bottom of the baseboard. It reality things never fit perfectly and when your eye sees that perfection it looks a bit off. You can barely even see it in the rendering but it's there.

    Something I've been playing with in Vray...

    Export for CNC paths

    Thanks Chris.... I just heard back from my CNC guy and it seems I need to tie all the segments together too so I'll just have to play around with it.

    Export for CNC paths

    Thanks for this... Using the orthographic projection created some funky old geometry... So I ended up using the derive segment tool. Do you know any way of getting rid of those iso lines when do an orthographic projection ?

    ooooh, I never use the vrmateditor, I do it all in FormZ. Justin said to load the normals map into the bump map area. Good luck... make sure you post your results if you get it looking good, I'm always keen to learn something new.

    Tim, Here's the specs for the material I created... not even a bump map.

    something like this ? I didn't really do anything differently. Regular texture map you posted, bit of reflection and a bit of glossiness. Not sure why it looks so different to your image. One thing I have issues with though is bump mapping.... it just seems to make the texture a lot brighter for me.

    It's a marijuana growing cabinet. Very legal and very cool in Canada now FormZ and Vray has been a massive part of it's development, still fine tuning things but I'm pretty pumped about it.
