  1. Not sure why but the Clipping Plane Palette on the Mac version of FZ does not respond well to renaming attempts. It takes a lot of careful clicking to try and get the name tag to respond.
  2. Is it possible to add .eps to the import and export file types? Especially to the import section. I have moved away from Adobe to Affinity. This has created a bit of a snag with my work flow.
  3. Hi Ztech, Thanks for the answer - really helpful and easy to do :-).
  4. I am using the dimensions tool in the FZ model window. I would like to not have mm behind every dimension. A simple note on the drawing stating that all dims are in mm is sufficient. The mm gets in the way. How does one remove the mm annotation behind each dimension? Thanks Kim
  5. Happy Holidays to everyone 🙂

    Extend Segment to Surface

    The Extend To tool will extend a segment to a surface. The operative word here being Segment and it needs to intersect with the plane of the surface. If you could provide an image of what you are trying to do it would help the answers
  7. Hi All, I am trying to create a simple 24" x 36" pdf from FZ 8.6. on a MBP running Mac OS X. Went into Pages to create a custom sized sheet (24 x 36) and then came back into FZ to go through the print process to create the pdf. Unfortunately the custom sheet sizes are greyed out. To create pdf from Model I am doing the following: 1) Select PRINT > PRINT SETTINGS 2) Then pull down MENU for PAPER SIZE . It is here where I usually see my paper sizes for pdf files. I select a paper save and hit SAVE. My process is now limited to paper sizes in my local printer!!! Any thoughts how to do this simple process of how to make and select a custom paper size for making PDF's? Thanks Kim
  8. Thanks Anton, I will look into this solution. Kim
  9. The Layers Palette is acting up - not scrolling up and down. Same problem on two different machines using same combo of FZ and OS.
  10. Just rebooted the entire system. All working now, wondering if this is something that takes time to develop? Anyone else having this problem?

    8.6 bugs

    An interesting idea. The logistics may be a problem as users are spread around the globe. Maybe ADS can hold I at their headquarters thus keeping costs down. If you do as suggested by Justin, hold it with an Architectural conference, you will attract mostly architects. I think FZ is used more widely as it is such a powerful 3D modeler.

    8.6 bugs

    Hugo, We got into this discussion last year but due to time constraints I dropped the ball. I agree with the points you make above. One day if ADS could set up a video conference where we could all share our work processes, I would love to participate.

    8.6 bugs

    Thanks FZnoob, I have now updated to the latest build. The problems I was having with version 10017 not repeating. But I have found that build 10027 takes longer to open a file but once the file is open all is okay. Running on iMac 5K, 27 inch late 2015 with 4GHz Intel core i7, high sierra version 10.13.3

    8.6 bugs

    Having lots of the buggy problems mentioned in this discussion. Looked at my version number and saw that it is the buggy one (build 10017). So went to download page and downloaded latest update. For some stupid reason the newly updated FZ file will not open??? Anyone else having this problem? Thanks

    formZ and 4K resolution

    Using FZ on a 5K iMac. Not having any problems dealing with GUI's
  16. I have made a few annotations in the modeling component of FZ but when they are brought through to the Layout file the text is converted to many small hash marks. Am I doing something wrong or is text not transferable from modeling to layout?

    FORMZ curriculum

    Hi Dubi, Great to hear you are running a maker space. I don't know of any curriculum out there for teaching the latest FZ but you may be able to put something together using the FZ tutorials online. Also the curriculum is going to be dependent on what the students are going to want to use FZ for. Being a maker space, I suspect the modeling needs could vary. The good thing about FZ is that it can cater to many different needs . Good luck with your course! Kim

    VRay Render Window

    I find that the VRay render window which insists on sitting on top of all other windows even if Form Z is not the app in use, creates a real estate problem on my screen. Is there a setting whereby one can push the rendering window into the background? Thanks Kim
  20. Hi ZVtech, Yes resetting the workspace fixed the problem of the Renderzone Icon disappearance. Would it be possible for you to post the Vray Webinar we had last week or is there a Tutorial available on how to get started with VRay? Thanks Kim
  21. After loading Vray into FZ8.6 The Display Tools palette no longer shows the Renderzone button, is intentional? Thanks Kim
  22. This update is looking good. While trying it out I selected the move tool and was blown away by all the new features in the new Tool Option Menu. After reading bbuxton's post about opening old versions of FZ, I had to give it a spin. Worked perfectly. Thanks AutoDesSys for hearing us all and giving us what we request! Kim
