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.
Whats new in formZ 8 Pro?
formZ 8 introduces subdivision modeling as a new personality to formZ's diverse modeling capabilities. Subdivision modeling is a method for creating unique organic forms. These organic models start from a simple base cage that can be dynamically manipulated and reformed with a new suite of tools that provide operations like grow, stretch, bridge, squeeze and offset. Subdivision models are parametric allowing for continued manipulation as well as dynamic control of the surface resolution.
There are a numerous improvements throughout formZ 8:
The sweep tools have a new option to use NURBS control points instead of a strict path. This enables smooth sweeps with lower numbers of control points.
The Cross Skin tool now handles smooth sources.
The Tight Lofting option of the NURBS by lofting tool now supports the Closed in Depth (V) option.
Layout improvements include a new option to keep the contents of a frame centered in the frame and better linkage to the model file associted with a frame.
The Offset Outline tool can be applied to multiple outlines in a single operation. This makes it possible to offset multiple outlines on different objects the same distance simultaneously. A new option has been added to apply the offset at preset numeric distance in addition to the existing dynamic method
The Shift key now disables guide snaps in the Cone Of Vision making it possible to make subtle changes to view parameters.
