formZ pro 8.5 + RenderZone Bundle

Solid and surface modeler with advanced rendering

formZ pro 8.5 + RenderZone Bundle 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 8.5 + RenderZone Bundle 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 8.5 + RenderZone Bundle, global illumination includes final gather, ambient occlusion, and Radiosity techniques, which can be applied separately or can be combined.
One or more lights can be used, which can be distant (sun), cone, point, projector, area, custom, line, environment, and atmospheric lights. Any of these lights may appear to glow in images and they are in addition to the globally available ambient light. The environment and atmospheric lights, which may be considered advanced light types, are especially optimized for global illumination.
Both procedural and pre-captured textures are offered and can be mapped onto the surfaces of objects using six different mapping methods: flat, cubic, cylindrical, spherical, parametric, or UV coordinates. A preview environment offers easy methods for both positioning and viewing textures as they are mapped onto objects.
Cubic and spherical environment mapping, bumps, backgrounds that include alpha channel support, depth effects, and post processing effects can be applied. Blur is an example of a post processing effect that simulates focusing your camera to a particular area of your modeling scene. Sky backgrounds that are procedurally generated come close to real skies that you may have captured with your camera.
Transparencies, reflections, and refractions can be applied at the z-buffer and raytrace levels. The reflections and refractions are always correctly raytraced, even when they are produced by the z-buffer rendering. This is achieved by applying a mixed rendering method, where surfaces with no reflections are rendered using z-buffer and the rendering effects of reflective surfaces are produced using raytracing.
State of the art shaders are used to render surfaces and other effects. A surface style is defined by up to four layers of shaders, which produce color, reflections, transparency, and bump effects. They can be applied independently or can be correlated. For example, the same procedural or pre- captured texture can be used for the color and then also as a transparency filter or bump mask. Surface styles can be assigned to complete objects or to groups of faces called texture groups.
Decals can be attached on top of other surface styles to produce a variety of rendering effects, such as labels on objects, graffiti on walls, partially reflective surfaces, masked transparencies, and more. Up to thirty-two decals can be applied to a single object and, because these decals may freely overlap, the rendering effects can be combined in virtually unlimited ways. Mixed wire frame and shaded renderings can be produced in the same image, in both formZ and formZ pro 8.5 + RenderZone Bundle. The wire frames can even cast shadows.
Libraries with many predefined materials are included and can be easily extended and customized by users. Images can be rendered and saved in a variety of user controlled sizes and resolutions, to a maximum of 16,000 x 16,000 pixels. Partially rendered images can also be produced and saved.
Also available is a sketch rendering mode that produces non photorealistic images, which appear as if they were drawn by manual rendering techniques, such as oil painting, water color, or pencil hatches.

formZ pro 8.5 + 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 8.5 + 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 8.5 + RenderZone Bundle with other complementary applications through 20+ translators.
  • Support for DWG and DXF to facilitate import/export to and from AutoCAD.
  • formZ pro 8.5 + 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.
