    Andre Conlledo reacted to pfschuyler in ETA 9.0?   
    I hate to post this because I already know the answer..."we'll post an announcement soon!"  
     
    But its not unheard of for a software company to post the occasional 'sneak peak' of pending features.  It really helps to know major changes the software might take, if any, from a user and planning perspective.  So, its been almost 2 years since the release of 8.0...what direction is FormZ headed in?  That is, will Layout be improved or abandoned?  BIM features added or ignored?  New UI?  Material editor? What sort of basic direction can we expect from the future FormZ?

    Andre Conlledo got a reaction from Santoskes in Palettes not displaying properly   
    After right clicking on the formZ icon and changing "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" on the Compatibility tab I had some of my formZ palletes not displaying properly. I need help getting this fixed as soon as possible! 
     
    Things I tried but didn't work:
    Reboot my computer Switch back to having "Display Scaling" ON Reset all workspaces Delete the formZ folder on C:\Users\Andre\AppData\Local\Temp On the formZ preference tab reset the defaults for "Dialogs" & "Palettes"  Running formZ with compatibility mode ON for Windows 7 Re-installing formZ  
    My system:
     
    Windows 10 PRO
    CPU Intel i7-6700K @ 4.5GHz
    Geforce GTX 980 Ti (Driver 375.63)
    32G RAM

    How can I update Maxwell 4.0.0.6 to newer version 4.0.0.8 released today? I only bought the Maxwell-formZ licence and all I see is Maxwell Studio and Maxwell (BTW what's the difference?).

    I do feel we see a bit more of Formz in the trade. The fact that Next limit decided to drop the LIghtwave plugin but kept the FormZ plugin is showing that trend.
    I hope an eventual V9 could bring more user to consider Z in their toolset. The free version certainly helps.
     
    I would also like to know if something is in the oven or not.

    Andre Conlledo got a reaction from mleblanc in Maxwell V4 GPU rendering working?   
    Once they polish out the flaws on the GPU render engine V4 will be king. 
    Render quality on "DRAFT" seems to remain the same as V3 -- except V4 is slower for some reason by about 25%.
    So you'll be skipping the "wait-till-it-works" process by not updating straight away so that's a good thing.
     
    Here's a new test I ran this morning with V4. Both images rendered to SL16 in about 3 hours.

    Good. Thank you for posting your steps. (This is the method I have always used. I personally find it easier than the license activator tool.)

    Andre Conlledo reacted to Tech in form•Z 8.5.6 Update Released!   
    We are pleased to announce that the formZ 8.5.6 update is now available for pro, jr, free and student editions.
     
    To update, just select Check for Update from the the formZ Help Menu to automatically update your v8.5 software.
     
    If you have any issues with the automatic updates, you can access the full download using the links you received in the email you received with your registration codes, or you can download just the updated application folder here: http://www.formz.com/update
     
    NOTE:  Please contact us directly at support@formz.com or start a NEW forum thread if you have any feedback or issues.

    Enjoy!
     
    Highlights of improvements in this version include (but are not limited to):
     
    • Numeric input now works properly for the reshape and extrusion tools. 
    • Subdivision tools work properly on subd objects that have at least one original face with more than 4 sides or have an open edge (i.e. are a surface).
    • Export Component To Library now works properly.
    • Controlled rounding objects are now selectable after they are created (no longer need to save and re-open file to pick them). 
    • Group Extents are no longer displayed when the group is invisible.
    • Picking the last material in the materials palette now works properly when the palette is certain widths.
    • form•Z v6 files that contain cloned objects now load properly.
    • DWG export of files with grouped objects now works properly. 
    • DWG export now removes invalid characters from layer names.

    • Graphics performance for files with large number of objects has been restored. 
    • Tabbing between text fields no longer generates Internal Error on MacOS Sierra 10.12.
    • STEP import/export now works on OS X 10.9. 
    • Notes have new placement options. Notes in files opened from older versions now have a legacy placement type to retain previous position of notes. 
    • The snap guides shown at the first click of the Rotate tool, are now preserved after the second click.
