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.
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.
Exports SKP, DWG, DXF, SAT, STEP, DAE, and STL for 3D printing.
Symmetry 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.
Scripting 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.
