FormZ Free

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I was wondering, can i ask my clients to install form z free in order to navigate within 3d models i send them created obviously with formz pro ?

and can i have both form z pro and formz free installed on the same machine with no known conflicts? can they work at the same time, each presenting on a different monitors connected to the same pc?

Thanks

Hi ariel,

I hate not to have a definite answer but I am pretty sure you can all of the above. Someone with Free would be able to open any form.Z model, only some of the tools used to make it would be unavailable. You can have both pro and free installed, just don't know if you can do one per monitor. You could at least get a modeling window on monitor 2.

Hello!

I think as long as you are only navigating using SHADED or WIREFRAME modes, then the Free version should work OK.  It's a bit of a process to teach non 3D people how to use a software like fomZ to navigate a scene.  Setting up views that they can click through in order (1,2,3,4, etc) is an easy way to get that to process going though. 

 

FYI, I have also found that sharing my screen over a high speed internet connection allows me to navigate clients 'live' through the project, direct from my workstation with high quality visuals.

Hi there,

Thanks for all the answers. ill give it a shot this weekend.

What i wanted to do is keep the FZ pro which i am working on, on one monitor and have the FZfree setup to present on the other on wall TV. I need that in order not to mess with my working interface. 

Also sharing screen over internet works fine for me locally, but its kind of hard with my clients over in Africa and so... 

The Ipad viewer is also a good option indeed. it is amazing and i am using it all the time presenting and or exploring models with my team.

Thanks all

Mobile viewer still version 1.2.1 in the App Store. But it’s great to use. Any news about an update for version 9?

Hello, I just wanted to install formz9 free, but the downloader contains the formz Pro version.

Could you fix this, please :-) ?

Thanks and best regards
