Form•Z pro 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.
RenderZone allows you to create photorealistic renderings 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 + RenderZone Bundle in a Nutshell
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, 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
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
Photorealistic rendering with global illumination based on final gather, ambient occlusion, and radiosity, for advanced simulation of lighting effects and rendering techniques. Alternatively, Sketch Rendering can be used to produce a variety of rendering styles that appear to have been manually generated
