    palarsen reacted to ¢hris £und in fZ + Python + CO2   
    What do you think?  Finally bit the bullet and ordered one of these.  And this is what I have been itching about for python!  Looking to make some dedicated toolsets for creating patterns for the CO2 machine.  Don't know how far I will be able to push it, but I am gonna go for it!

    palarsen reacted to ariel in Can Full Shaded Ignore Materials by click?   
    Hi there, 
    re - FZ 8.6 and FZ 9
    Can Full Shaded display ignore materials (not textures), and display the whole model in one tone for example ? and then by a click or a shortcut, have the materials applied again to the real time render ?
    Also, Can we shortcut the option to display Textures inside Full Shaded ?
    Thanks

    Great addition, thanks ADS!
    Doing some tests, I noticed that the smooth objects are converted to faceted... I hope this can be corrected in the next version.

    Save a Copy as to v8.x now works properly for files with embedded components.

    The fillet tool is applied to the selected point for certain objects.
    Import from Drafting now groups the imported objects properly.
    Exiting the Cone of Vision, no longer disturbs the palettes under certain conditions.

    I like to visit this forum very often to pick up tips, see what others are doing and if I can help other users in any way, it's like a daily habit. As an avid user for many years, I can't help but notice that there has been a lull in the amount of modelling tips, queries regarding to the actual 3d modelling and rendering. I realise that many users here have been around a long time, are seasoned users of FormZ and don't need the advice as much as before, but there is so much talent at our disposal here relating to varying disciplines.
    I think ADS need encouragement too and it'd be nice to see some good things now and again from the users (Antons FormZ models and Pipos WIPs for example), especially in the times we're in at the moment. I know some of you are trying to help ADS with bug submissions and suggestions but maybe try to deliver it in a more positive way? Some here are like spoiled kids crying because they have to do four clicks instead of one and expecting a magic red button that does all..
    And no, I'm not having a bad day today 😁

    This is simply not true. Many of the issues that you reported have been addressed. Most of the other issues we could not reproduce. Sorry it took longer than normal to answer your email but please understand that we are all working in less than ideal circumstances these days! You did receive a response today.

    New stuff
    “Superimpose” is a new option in the Underlay options of the Reference Plane Parameters palette. When selected, the underlay is Superimposed in shaded views instead of depth sorted. This is most useful when combined with the transparency slider to see the undelay image through a shaded image.
    “Give Guide Snaps Priority” is a new option in the snap options Palette. When selected, Guide Snaps are given priority over object snaps (when both are enabled). If the cursor is close to both a guide and a snappable point/edge/face, the location will be snapped to the guide rather than the point/edge/face. When this option is disabled, the opposite rule is applied. This option is now on by default by popular request as it makes the guides more functional in shaded rendering modes. The option can be controlled with a key shortcut as well (Key Shortcuts manager).
    General improvements
    Export of hidden line images to pixel based formats (TIFF/PNG/JPG etc.) now works properly.
    Underlay images no longer disappear when switching from wireframe to shaded full and the back to wireframe on machines with certain graphics cards.
    Components with Flat/Cubic/Spherical texture map controls now render properly in RenderZone. 
    Using Reduce Mesh tool no longer crashes on certain objects.
    Files with mirrored components now show the components properly when saving and re-opening the file.
    Curve and Surface Formula tools now show all the formulas in the Interface.
    View navigation in the Decals and Classic Texture Map dialog now works properly. 
    The “Pick By” and “Assign” options in the Classic Texture Map dialog now work properly. 
    Door/Window component’s are now are placed at the proper depth.
    The Section tool now properly honors the Status of objects (Ghost or Delete).
    Windows specific 
    The Transform tool no longer crashes when entering a second value for the Scale option. 
    Draft/Layout

    For many years we have had requests for a viewer app for form•Z files on a laptop or desktop computer. form•Z Viewer is a new app based on the v9 interface. More mature than a beta, but its never been out in the wild. Please let us know what you think!
