    Hi Andre,
     
    Yes, we have found that this can happen on certain Windows systems.  Thanks for your report, we will get this corrected.

    I personally prefer to scale the whole UI using Windows 10.
     
    I'm really excited about formZ working on a real 4K UI and hope to see some changes on the next update including the palette-snap option.

    Andre Conlledo got a reaction from Andrea in formZ to DWG multiple lines bug   
    Here's the 3D model with the clipping plane activated. I exported an image in both wireframe and hidden line and attached both files.
     
    You'll find the multiple line issue on the hidden line export. To do so just zoom in to any intersecting lines as I did on the video. 
     
    On formZ 8.5.0.1 build 9661 the wireframe export seems to have no problems. It's possible to clean this file and work with it in AutoCad but it takes a lot of work. Do you know how to clean the extra lines from AutoCad? I have tried several procedures but non of them delivers accurate results (probably something for Autodesk forums).

    Andre Conlledo got a reaction from Andrea in formZ to DWG multiple lines bug   
    Hello, I'm having a hard time using formZ models for final blueprints mainly because I need files in DWG format. When I export image to DWG from fromZ 8 or formZ 8.5 in either hidden line or plain wireframe I get unclean lines and inaccurate geometry. I tried using formZ Layouts and even though the results are cleaner they still have the same problem. Please watch this video.
     
    I'm uploading a zip file with some of the files shown on the video.

    FormZ high dpi scaling ;-(
    Takes long long time to solve this huge problem.
    Take a look at open source programs like blender and gimp the look great on 4K monitor.
    Even SketchUp is better. The biggest problem is the formZ cursor (completely invisible) you need a lot
    of imagination while drawing thats for sure.
    my monitor 3840x2160 by the way.

    Andre Conlledo reacted to R2D2 in DWG export scale   
    This should really be fixed/restored asap. Please.
    It is really annoying not to be able to generate a quick HL render (even if it is only from front/top/side views, as before) and export 2D at scale, "as is", without "postproduction".
    Be it via Layout or calculating scale values in CAD @ ,0000 accuracy)
     
    If the wishlist hadn`t exploded I`d again add:
    Generate clipping Plane - "Look at" clipping Plane - Generate HL render - export to scale.
     
    (And at least for new or potential users it must be really confusing to import their drawing into 2D CAD and find its scaled by  19,66568338249754....)
     
    Thx

    Hello Asone, I do beleive it's worth it but it's not without it's flaws. In the end is all about the software and some programs haven't bumped up the resolution yet. However 4K is not the future anymore -- 4K is here and now with Windows 10 UI scale settings you can fix the problem of tiny interface elements, making them appear larger but still sharper than they’d look on a lower-resolution display. For the extra detail that you get on pictures and video it's totally worth it but you need to fine-tune your software to be able to work with it. I am really hoping that formZ develops a 4K UI sometime soon so that I can profit from this upgrade.
     
    I wouldn't go back to my 1980x1200 monitor if that helps.

    I just upgraded my computer and I now have a 4K monitor. I think it'd be cool if formZ could make a 4K UI.
     
    In the mean time could anyone help me find out if it's possible to have 4K on the main work window while still retaining Window's scale?
    I know it's possible for programs to bypass the scaling by right clicking the launch icon and selecting the "Disable display scaling" under the compatibility tab. However that makes every icon unreadable so I'm just interested on the main work window.

    Hi Andre,
     
    No, this should be improved, but not completely fixed.  This is a complex issue and we are still investigating this...

    Andre Conlledo reacted to AsOne in FormZ 9 wish list...   
    I'm really enjoying the improvements brought to v8.5. Some thoughts for the future:

     

    Soft Selection tool added to the Generative Design tools: add ability to do random selections via a Pick tool selection window.  known as “soft select” in other applications I believe.   Offer options for random percentage of objects to be selected (via numeric input and slider).  Also offer a gradient map option so that one could select more objects on one side of the section (or however the gradient map is drawn - could be radial wavy, etc.).  This feature would really go work well with the recently introduced generative design tools.  

     

    Drop Down Menus: I would love to see a drop down menu for the following palettes:  Layers, Materials (not parameters just selecting materials), Line weight, Line type…also perhaps views and scenes.  They would be especially useful when working on a laptop and would offer a much faster and improved workflow.  Opening and re-closing the palettes gets tiring and is inefficient.  I know it is only a few clicks, but it adds up and a drop down to set those attributes would be great.  

     

    Set Attributes: Ability to set current attributes by clicking on an object.  Similar to Get/Set Attributes, but it would set your current working attributes for new objects.

     

    Reshape tool: ability to reshape by specific numeric distance (repeatedly)  For example, I could set it to 2” and when I click on the face of a cube it would grow by 2”.  

     

    Further improvement of Shaded Full shadow edges (shadows in general look a lot better - thanks for adding the Gigantic setting, but try drawing something like a 1/2” x 1/2” metal railing and check the shadows up close…even with Gigantic they are still not up to par)

     

    Select by Criteria palette:  update the material option.  Currently with only 8 small materials showing it is VERY hard to find the materials I want.  typically my models end up with a lot of materials.  I find this a very handy tool, but the interface is limiting its use.

     

    Fix losing numeric input box while panning and/or placing a temporary guideline

     

    Thanks for making the program great.

    I can't get fire to work with formZ 8.5 even though I can render. Apparently there's something wrong with my textures even though it's just a preset opaque-white clay material.

    I find Ashampoo Snap8 [windows] excellent for this sort of thing - don't pay full price for it. Similar to and much cheaper than Snag-It. There is also Screen-hunter and others with free basic versions. Jing [free] is particularly great too, especially with included Screencast for cloud storage and sharing of screen-shots and short videos. All have annotation capabilities and can operate from the print-screen button. Not an advert, just useful to know from user experience.

    We have been able to reproduce this problem on certain computers.  Thanks for you report, we will get this corrected.

    Try setting the object Attributes : Cross Section : Line Weight to 1 and see if that helps.  This method did not “fix” the problem 100% for us, but it did yield much better results.
