- Design 3D models, drafts, animations, and more
- Use layout sheets to send project details to a construction site
- Create 3D objects using formula tools
- Avoid frustrating mistakes with a smart interface that guides your actions
AutoDesSys Form·Z is a CAD program used to design 3D spaces and forms for many different purposes. It is commonly used for 3D modeling, architectural drafting, animation, and rendering.
Form·Z comes with a large set of tools for 2D and 3D form manipulation. 3D forms can be created with a visual interface or by formulas that you design. The visual creation tools allow you to create shapes including analytic primitives, spherical objects, metaballs and metaformz, and custom shapes. There are also layout sheets that you can use to create different views of a model and include notes and dimensions.
There are also many features provided by Form·Z that help streamline your workflow. It has an intelligent interface that determines what you are trying to accomplish and helps prevent any unwanted actions. Form·Z also simplifies your workflow by grouping related tools into workspaces, so that you can always find what you need.
Form·Z is a good modeling tool for 3D design, especially for architecture. If you are an architect that is looking for a good CAD program, Form·Z is a great option. If you are interested in creating models for games, it might not be the best solution.
