In the past and up to v.6, one could use the drafting module in FormZ to draw just about anything in 2D with accuracy and ease. With Layout (and unless I am missing something), unfortunately this is not the case anymore. I understand that FormZ is not a drafting program. Nevertheless, I only hope that AutoDesSys will consider restoring (and even improving) some of the older drafting capabilities that allowed us to draw anything (from annotated site and floor plans to construction details) in real and not scaled measurements. Having said this, I believe that creating frames and sheets in Layout with 3D views being directly linked to models could be a great feature to consider.
There are some great stuff in formZ that I love but I would like to see a much improved tools for 2D drafting. We are not even talking of major stuff here, just more curve and line editing and the ability to blend curves. The current tools for editing curves like trim and filet could be a lot more robust and have more options...I am struggling to create basic 2D geometry I could have easily created intuitively in other packages like Rhino, Autocad, Microstation etc ...It is really a shame and it lets what should be a really good program down.. i dont want to be rude, but it feels sloppy considering you expect architects and other professional designers to use this software for business
