formZ 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.

Create a plane of symmetry for an object. Subsequent operations to the object maintain symmetry by updating the opposite sides of the model to match. This functionality has special consideration for NURBs curves, NURB surfaces and Sub-D objects

Reference Files
Display data from one project inside another project. Reference files allow for complex static data to be maintained in external files and support collaboration between team members

Python scripts in formZ are an easy way to extend the functionality of formZ to add your own utilities or create a custom design tools. Most of the formZ functionality is available to a formZ python script

Creative Design Tools
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 comprehensive 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
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
Shape and sculpt 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
