    Hardware - Input Devices

    Look into Steermouse, it allows you to modify the behavior of the mouse pretty well, including behavior of the scroll wheel. Gives you the ability to use mice where there is no Driver on the Mac. and allows behaviors for specific Apps (as is expected) http://www.plentycom.jp/en/steermouse/download.php

    Palette Window

    I use the nested palettes. 1 for Layers and Objects, another for all else. On my desktop, since I have two monitors, things are split up a bit different.

    Logitech MX3 mouse Zoom option

    I also use a Logitech, but I prefer the system extension SteerMouse to modify it's behavior. Originally got it, because Logitech did not support the specific mouse I was using on the Mac. Don't even recall if my current mouse is supported. 10 Buttons (not including the scroll click and the 3 that are on the scroll wheel(never use those)) G700s The only thing I do not like about this mouse, is it is a bit small for my hands. so I enbiggend it. Looks like crap, but it fits my gorilla sized hands. http://www.plentycom.jp/en/steermouse/download.php

    Too Options Palette

    I have, I keep Layers and Objects together, then all others together. however, with some tools, the options do get quite long.

    Too Options Palette

    While I think the changes are good, the idea here that the list palettes would scroll underneath the tool options is a great idea. same here, on my laptop, there is a lot sof extra scrolling to get to a layer or object or whatever, only to have to scroll again to get to the options.

    Red Dotted Grid

    That kind of control will show up on objects that you use the new symmetry tool on. albeit, does not look like you have symmetry across that plane.
  7. 6 subdivisions is the magic number, First eliminate the pentagon "fills" this gives you a kind of nucleus to work around. It really helps to have your pick tool to "crossing always" that way you only need to capture the center of each hex or pent that you want so that you can delete them. Or, you can use what I set up as a starter. HexiSphere.fmz.zip cheers!
  8. Started to play with this, and I kept coming up with a few pentagrams... Hmmm... if you take a closer look at the image, there are occasional pentagrams too. This is pretty manual... but, start with a Geodesic sphere, with a number of subdivisions of 4. create to size. Then pick an arbitrary location (I chose center top) and start deleting segments so that you have a hexagram left over. Adjacent to that, do it again... and keep going. Again, you will run into spots, that the only option is a pentagram. Too, you may need to experiment with higher number of subdivisions. I only tried a value of 4. and it may be possible, that I run into trouble somewhere that neither a hex or a pent will fit.... Hope this helps, and hope even more that someone else will come up with a more clever idea. ¢£

    formZ models exchange site!

    Tech, I do think that this is one of the things that may hamper the spread of fZ. if Anton cannot continue, maybe it would be a good idea to pick it up and really get it to grow. ¢£

    How to export to Draft

    I presume it is a bug that didn’t get caught. A lot of the focus was on the interface. If it isn’t a bug, then I suggest making a request. Myself, I don’t use the layout, as the dimensioning in 3D does what I need. €£

    How to export to Draft

    Sorry about that, I presumed they would behave the same. However, a bit awkward, you can copy from Layout, paste to Draft.

    Radial Array

    I’ll have to admit, I find it buggy. And actually having numerous flaws in its current build. They have been reported. when I get back on my computer, I will detail it for you. Won’t be until evening, however. €£
