formZ jr 9, previously called bonZai3d, is an application with a fresh approach to 3D modeling aimed at delivering conceptual design and sketching ideas quickly while still making it possible to carry you to the next level of productivity.formZ jr's robust geometry creates models that can be used for construction drawings, photorealistic rendering, and fabrication.
formZ jr’s simple, smart, and fun interface reveals unexpected capabilities and tools that complement and enhance creativity. Embedded tutorial videos facilitate the learning at one’s own pace and without the need for expensive training sessions. Intuitive tools include descriptive step-by-step guides and interface hints for a productive workflow. To further explore and exchange ideas, solutions, and problem solving alternatives, the formZ jr forum operates 24/7, as a valuable resource from peers who deal with the daily tests of real life projects. In addition, the AutoDesSys technical support team stands by to offer its help as needed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
