in USA only

SKU: 1703

formZ Pro 9 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.

Features Highlights

  • Available for MacOS X 10.11 or later and Windows 7/8/10.
  • Surface Modeling tools including Booleans, NURBS and Subdivision Surfaces.
  • Native support for 64 architecture on OS X allows for more content creation.
  • Imports SKP, KMZ, DWG, DXF, DAE, OBJ, SAT, STEP and STL files.
  • Exports SKP, DWG, DXF, SAT, STEP, DAE, and STL for 3D printing.

Object Symmetry creates a plane of symmtrey for an object. Subsequent operations to the object maintain symmetry by updaing the opposte sids of the model to match. The symmetry functionality has special consideration for NURBs curves, NURB surfaces and Sub-D objects.

Reference Files
Reference Files are simply data from one project displayed inside another project. Reference files allow for complex static data to be mainteined in external files and supports coloboration where files can be shaered between team members as a design evolves.

Python is a easy to use yet rich scripting language. Python scripts in formZ are an easy way to extend the functionality of formZ to add your own utilities or craete a custom design design tools. Most of the formZ functionality is avaiable to a formZ python script.

Creative Design Tools
A suite of creative design tools to enhance form generation. Create new and interesting forms especially when combined with each other.These tools suite includes: Voronoi diagram, Point Scatter, Surface Scatter, Volume Scatter, Parametric Map, Wrap tool and Delaunay Triangulation.

Nurbs Tools
A comprenhesive suite of NURBS tools combines unprecedented ease of use and power. The NURBS analysis features aid in the evaluation and refinement of your design.

Parametric Generation
Fully parametric and dynamic generation of 3D forms that can be further manipulated at any time after their initial generation.

Interactive Display
The formZ interactive display takes advantage of modern OpenGL capabilities. This is most noticeable in Shaded Full display mode with real time ambient occlusion, bump mapping, soft shadows and multi sampling features.

Formula Tools
Powerful formula tools create complex curves and surfaces based on mathematical formulas with ease. The included predefined library of shapes is a launching point for a whole new method of form creation.

Subdivision Tools
The suite of Subdivision tools allows shaping and sculpting subdivision surfaces with simple, easy to use controls. Subdivisions are useful for tensile structures; organic surfaces ranging from exotic roofs to character meshes, these tools make formZ a versatile modeling tool.


    Support & Maintenance

    New user licenses of formZ Pro 9 come with four months of free technical support over the phone or e-mail directly from AutoDesSys (4 months of Family Plan). Users have the option to subscribe to the Family Plan, an annual maintenance plan that provides unlimited technical support and updates sent to you as they are released.

    Great hybrid modeler

    Nice full featured modeler with excellent reshaping tools.

    The best new interface for design / cad

    This program is so easy to use. They've all but eliminated the learning curve with this smart interface.

    Try FormZ 8 you'll never go back !


    FormZ 8 is my favorite architectural modeler

    FormZ 8 is hands-down my favorite 3d modeling program for architectural design. It offers much more than other tools out there and has an easy-to-use interface so I can get my work done. It has many parametric tools like walls and stairs, and also has NURBS and new subdivision surfaces for parametric curvy surfaces. Layout is a bonus being able to take live views of my models and make drawings out of them. It also has tight integration with Maxwell Render which runs as a plugin right inside it.

    I couldn't do my job without it.

    FormZ 6 was great... FormZ 8 Pro is even better!!!

    My studio has been a user of formz render zone for over 25 years. Thru the years after using a wide range of varied modelers & rendering applications we use formZ as our exclusive premium 3D program. We have a team of 4 designers currently using FormZ 8 Pro with varied work that ranges from Point of Purchase Displays, Exhibits, Store Design, Product Design, Illustration & Packaging … FormZ 8 Pro excels in all. The application covers all our 3D cad needs… it is precise, accurate and can be used loosely. Recently updated Shaded Work display option allows for real time visualization as well as preliminary client presentation and it is quick. Tech support is the best second to none… you can always get them on phone… they will help you solve any of your 3D cad needs.
    Now that they have completely updated to FormZ 8 it is better then ever. It’s quick and the tools are powerful.

    formZ 6.0 Rocks!

    Auto.des.sys Inc.'s formZ has always been one of the top 3D Modeling CAD programs on the market. Version 6.0 Ups The Ante in a Major Way. Simply an Amazing Release!
