formZOverview

formZ pro is a powerful 3D design application featuring a variety of modeling personalities and tools with an easy to use interface to express and communicate your imagination. It is based on advanced 3D solid and surface modeling methods that maintain accurate representations as you progress from design to visualization, layout, animation and fabrication.

formZ pro 8 is the latest version that introduces subdivision modeling as yet another modeling personality that enables the quick design and exploration of organic forms that originate from basic shapes. These forms are easily manipulated using a suite of subdivision tools that empower this new personality.

New

  • Introduces a new suite of creative design tools to enhance form generation. These tools offer a variety of ways to create new and interesting forms especially when combined with each other. These tools also work well with many existing formZ pro tools like subdivision surfaces and deformations to make even more interesting forms. These new tools suite includes:
    • The Voronoi diagram tool creates a formation of cells from a set of points.
    • The Point Scatter, Surface Scatter, and Volume Scatter tools create formations by distributing copies of objects on or inside of other objects.
    • The Parametric Map tool allows 2D objects to be mapped onto a surface or face of another object.
    • The Wrap tool creates a new object from the 3D spatial boundary (or convex hull) of a set of objects or the 2D boundary of a planar set of points.
    • The Delaunay Triangulation tool creates robust triangulated meshes from a set of points on a surface or plane.
    • The formZ pro Layout environment has been migrated to its own app. The new formZ Layout app includes numerous improvements plus a title block feature including a library of ready to use title blocks. Commonly used title block text can be auto filled from a user-defined dictionary.
  • formZ pro v8.5 includes an interface for the Augment reality app. With Augment, you can visualize your formZ models in real world settings, at real size, in real time on OS X and Android mobile devices. See http://www.augmentedev.com for more details.
  • The Hidden Line rendering in formZ pro v8.5 has been improved to allow interactive view navigation and can optionally show hidden/back edges as dashed lines.
  • ACIS r25 and (ASAT r25 file format) support for improved smooth modeling
  • Improved display performance for layout files and complex 3D model files.
  • Enhancements to the Bend Along Path tool and Align/Distribute tools.
  • Improved numeric input.
  • New High Quality smoothing export option.
  • A variety of improvements and enhancements throughout.
