Hi, I'm pretty sure i am missing something when it comes to form Z, i've used many 3d packages over the years and used Form Z back in my University days. After re discovering it, it has the potential of being a great concept modeller for my work flow apart from the fact that it's not very intuitive when working with imported drawings. I tend to do most of my design work for products in Adobe illustrator and have no problems using them in other packages such as Blender or cinema4d and creating 3d product parts. Form Z on the other hand is a different story, i managed to shape a plug for a vac-form piece using the nurbs tools and the nuggets of info in some of the online tutorials. However when trying to create a simple cabinet design i come unstuck! Firstly upon import of an illustrator file it will only place the drawing on the XY plane, even though i've set the plane to ZX and checked 'position on current reference plane'? SO firstly i have to rotate the objects and reposition them, no the end of the world but still. Is this a bug? Secondly after this i try to derive a surface from a spline but get this: see images Does anyone know what i am doing wrong? Thanks for your time.
Hi there, in last few years I have used programs like Rhino 4 and Solidworks demo (last years) to design a models of solid body guitars that would be shaped so good that is suitable for CNC routing. Even Internet is huge it's hard to find out reliable and precise 3D models suitable for it, and I had intention to make some my own design. Until now it was good working with Rhino but I faced with difficulties when I had to join headstock with rest of guitar neck; I wasn't able to make it smooth and precise. So, I saw this software and based on some examples I thought it would offer a wanted solution for me instead Rhino. What you think? Is there anybody who created some guitar or bass with some version of form Z 7/8? What are your opinions, suggestions about this challenge? Do you have some advice, or you saw somewhere some clips about it? Thank you.
