    Nvidia GPU on Mac

    So.. Can we use any eGPU on Catalina (MacPro late 2013) to use Maxwell GPU rendering?

    Perhaps you had groups with objects on different layers?

    2 Path Sweep

    Two path sweep might be a little troublesome, but your shape is impossible anyway. You can't have such a smal radius on your outer path. Think twice about what you want here. Try making a muckup by lofting a nurbz

    Edit a components insertion point?

    Component manager: Edit component, or right click on it and "open component"

    Disable ALT scrolling through tools

    Preferences/Modeling "Use tap Keys" off What we need is more detail in this option. Perhaps a palette? I would like to turn tap keys of for Topological levels (very annoying) I like it for copy modes and perpendicular shifting, but I believe it would be better with customisable shortcuts in a palette. It should have been a tab in the Quick Keys palette!!

    macOS Mojave

    Runs perfect
  13. Always trace of geometry from Illustrator. Its faster than you think, and you control the geometry intelligence yourself. Export jpg from Illustrator. Billboard it in.
  14. Oh. And of course also while moving!
  15. When you draw a line, all sorts of helping guides are applied while drawing. You can for example continue to draw in the same direction if you place a point and want to continue in the same direction. Use the object doctor when finished to eliminate colinear segments (remove that extra point) So this is a workaround. Holding shift while snapping to a point could have the effect to create a temporary guide, just like the one you get if you actually click to draw the point. Helpful, speedy, and typical for cad drawing
  16. Guide lock works fine in principle. But it has an annoying bug: Holding the shift key will NOT lock to an ortogonal snap guide if there is some model geometry aligned and overlapping the guide. You'll have to zoom out and find a place in the window where the guide is not covered by an overlapping edge, and then lock to the guide, and then snap to the distant point, or whatever is the desired reference. I can find no reason for this behaviour. Locking to guide with shift should be strong. Not weak!

    form•Z 8.5.7 Update Released

    "Show/Hide edges Layer override and Render as Shaded Surface now work as expected" Great, but override edge display (always off) still does not work
  19. Great! I can switch to GPU in fire. But how can I tell if it works in a full render? Perhaps a stupid question.. /Petter

    axis lock ?

    Agree! While we're at it. Why can't guide lock (holding down the shift key while on a guide) lock to the guide if a segment is also where the guide is? This is very common. Now we have to zoom out, find the guide where there are no objects - lock to the guide - and zoom back in to snap. Like I have said numerous times: Let guides rule! Dont let them be covered by aligned segments. There is no reason NOT to allow guide lock!!

    Maxwell V4 GPU rendering working?

    So will Maxwell 4 work on my Mac Pro Mid 2010 with my NVIDIA Quadro K5000?

    MXS render bug

    Hi Referenced MXS renders fine, but if I turn of the layer with the MXS's, they still show up in the render. Both Fire and full. Latest beta and Mac OS X ref.zip
  24. It should be possible to scatter a landscape with two different types of trees. Only one of the two mxs scatter definitions show up in my test. If I turn of the one that works, the other appears. But disappears again if I turn the first one back on. This is on the newest betas /Petter
