Did you check that Fbx.EN.fzr and fbx.fzp are in the formZ 8.6 Pro 64/plugins/ffmt folder?  I  believe you could copy them over from a previous install and they will work fine

Those files are both there, however "Fbx.EN.fzr" is actually Fbx.ENU.fzr.

 

Yesterday, found another export problem: Export .dwg is also not available from FormZ Layout v8.6 build 10017. I called yesterday and spoke to support. They are supposed to call me back with their discoveries. 

 

Does anyone else have this problem with Layout?

It was missing in my 8.6 WIP as well, so I tried to copy it from 8.5.7 plugins folder. That didn't work. I also checked the Extensions Manager to see if it wasn't turned on but it's not listed there.

I should have pointed out that for me both the fbx and the dwg for Layout actually installed fine.

But, I have made a habit of keeping a copy of the ffmt folder handy for issues like this as the next update I might not be so lucky.

Bbuxton, those files you referenced are in place but export dwg from layout and fbx from model are NOT available options. Despite calling and reporting this, support have not followed up on my issue, nor has there been a response from them here.

 

Anyone know how to fix this? My work depends on this daily. Only way I've managed is that luckily I have desktop with a working installation. Some day in the near future I'll be traveling with my laptop that with this goofed up situation and will be out of luck...

Thanks Mark. Yes, I still have v8.5.7 installed and it WAS working fine with the requisite export formats available. Only AFTER installing v8.6, exports for .fbx and .dwg are no longer there for either installation. That's the really weird thing in this case.

Thank you for the updated installers Tech. FBX export out of FormZ is now there, however .DWG out of Layout is greyed out, i.e. not possible. Both builds are 10025 on OSX. Anyone else experiencing this?

Installed this latest version.  When I try to open the project I was working on last night I get this error:  Smooth Modeling error.  Access Violation.  Then the program crashes.  I was an hour away from finishing a major project but the last build was causing all sorts of problems. I just went back to it (build 10017) and the file opens perfectly.  I should also note that V-ray renders the scene just fine but if I switch to Shaded Render the program crashes.

"We updated the v8.6 installers to v8.6.0.2 (#10027) this morning."  

1) This installer works OK for Windows 10 -

  • But not installed for MacOS > (v8.6.0.1 #10025) is installed. (Note: I installed the smaller download - App only).
  • I have tested both Win & Mac versions and the problem "Smooth Modeling errors and possible crashes with certain files"  still exists with Mac.

 

 

2) Tech: Is it possible to put the full version / release details in the app file info? (Thanks in advance)

 

Best... G
