This bundle includes:

  • formZ pro 9
  • RenderZone

formZ pro 9 is the version of formZ that, in addition to all the modeling, drafting, and animation tools found in the basic package, includes photorealistic rendering based on the Lightworks rendering engine. It offers three levels of rendering: simple, z-buffer, and raytrace. A user can start developing the image of a 3D model at the simple level and gradually turn on features and render it at the most photorealistic level.

formZ pro 9 also includes the ability to produce images based on global illumination techniques, which create renderings with the most realism, as the illumination of a scene takes into account the accurate distribution of light in the environment. In formZ pro 9 + RenderZone Bundle, global illumination includes final gather, ambient occlusion, and Radiosity techniques, which can be applied separately or can be combined.

 

formZ pro 9 + RenderZone Bundle in a Nutshell

  • An effective design tool for all the fields that deal with the articulation of 3D forms and spaces, formZ pro 9 + RenderZone Bundle facilitates the development and execution of projects from conception to complete detailed structures, animated, and automatically fabricated.
  • Design directly in 3D or in 2D, using numeric or interactive graphic input through either line or smooth shaded drawings (OpenGL), slipping effortlessly back and forth among drafting, modeling, rendering, and animation.
  • Grow a model from simple lines to complex surfaces or to true solids with a few quick clicks.
  • Boolean solids to generate complex composite objects.
  • Create curved surfaces from a variety of splines, including NURBS and Bezier/Coons patches.
  • Dynamically sculpt and reshape objects using a variety of deformations to twist, bulge, or bend them, as you move seamlessly between 2D and 3D views.
  • Resize, stretch, extrude, lathe, sweep, project, unfold, deform, round objects in few simple steps
  • Create mechanical or organic forms using metaformz, nurbz, patches, subdivisions, displacements, or skinning.
  • Terrain models, Platonic solids, geodesic spheres, double line wall objects, stair cases, helixes, screws, and bolts are at your fingertips.
  • Add as many hierarchical layers as you need and work with floating point precision.
  • Refine the design with double precision CAD accuracy to full structural detail for 3D visualization, for the production of 2D construction drawings, 3D printing, rapid prototyping, and CNC milling.
  • Scripting and plug-in capabilities allow further customization for individual needs.
  • The interface is fully customizable.
  • formZ MovieZ support dynamic methods for transforming and morphing 3D shapes and allow the production of both animated visualizations of scenes and the capture of 3D shapes as they morph into other forms, introducing modeling methods that explore 3D forms significantly beyond traditional means.
  • Information management of bills of materials and spreadsheet support for construction documents.
  • Extensive interoperability of formZ pro 9 + RenderZone Bundle with other complementary applications through 20+ translators.
  • Support for DWG and DXF to facilitate import/export to and from AutoCAD.
  • formZ pro 9 + RenderZone Bundle provides the ultimate in photorealistic rendering with global illumination based on final gather, ambient occlusion, and radiosity, for advanced simulation of lighting effects and rendering techniques. Attain stunning results in a short time, with little effort to set up and easy to control. Alternatively, Sketch Rendering can be used to produce a variety of rendering styles that appear to have been manually generated.

FormZ 8 and Autocad Perfect !

Recently, I've been working at a large shop where Autocad is the main drafting program. There are 27drafters in our department alone. But when I introduced FormZ 8 to the company. The integration into to the autocad workflow was
simple. Simply save as a autocad dwg file and the two programs almost work like one. They were at first convinced they needed Solidworks but since there was no stress analysis or simulation involved Formz 8 turned out to save them a lot of money. BTW guys the new interface is killer. I can model as fast as any Maya guy now but do it it a technical environment where the dimensions really matter.

Killer App

Sincerely,

John Troxtel

FormZ 8 is not what it would seem

Unfortunately for those of us that have used this program for 12 years as professional designers logging 40 to 50 hours a week on this platform - it comes with great shock that so many everyday workflow items were needlessly moved around for no apparent reason whatsoever. Shameless adaptation and evolution with no real improvement to workflow is an absolute waste of time and energy on everyone's part. I relate well to the words of my grandfather - If it isn't broke - Don't fix it. Thanks autodesys for putting a grotesque learning curve back into a perfect functioning tool. Selling software has become more important than pleasing current users and it is more apparent in this update than any we've suffered in the 12 years of use. For the first time in my career - I am considering switching software to someone who develops, not shuffles, their technologies.

formz renderzone plus

This is an awesome 3d program. I'm a freelance designer. I've been using it for years for exhibit tradeshow and architecture projects. It works great on both mac and windows machines. The operation convention is a little non-standard, but very easy to get up to speed. Tech support is awesome - never a long wait.
Purchasing experience from Novedge was great also. I ordered it online and got the program in a couple days - no hassles! I WOULD definitely purchase from Novedge again!

My best asset

As a designer of retail environments and store fixtures, I find form Z to be a invaluable tool for planning and presentation. I've worked with earlier versions of the program and find this one to be the best yet.

I particularly like the expanded menu of predefind surfaces.

I do miss having a printed manual to refer to though.

I would like to see the downloadable libraries updated with more contemporary funishings and objects such as flat panel TV's, lighting fixtures and some people.

Just Starting

Just starting to use this software. Found one problem in that it does not recognize the latest format for Autocad 2007. Have to save the files in older version for an import to take place. Have not check the Revit imports as of this date.
