form·Z jr +V-Ray form·Z Bundle

The form•Z jr, previously called bonZai3d, is an application with a fresh approach to 3D modeling aimed at delivering conceptual design and sketching ideas quickly while still making it possible to carry you to the next level of productivity.

  • Robust geometry creates models that can be used for construction drawings, photorealistic rendering, and fabrication.
  • Simple, smart, and fun interface reveals unexpected capabilities and tools that complement and enhance creativity. Embedded tutorial videos facilitate the learning at one’s own pace and without the need for expensive training sessions.
  • Intuitive tools include descriptive step-by-step guides and interface hints for a productive workflow. To further explore and exchange ideas, solutions, and problem-solving alternatives, the form•Z jr forum operates 24/7, as a valuable resource for peers who deal with the daily tests of real-life projects. 
  • Introduces subdivision modeling as a new personality to form•Z's diverse modeling capabilities. Subdivision modeling is a method for creating unique organic forms. These organic models start from a simple base cage that can be dynamically manipulated and reformed with a new suite of tools that provide operations like grow. Subdivision models are parametric allowing for continued manipulation as well as dynamic control of the surface resolution.


  • The subdivision tools are also useful for quickly smoothing or softening a faceted model. Subdivision objects can be converted to NURBS for additional manipulation and evaluation using form•Z’s extensive NURBS tools.
  • Subdivision objects work great with 3D printing as they produce regular meshes that tend to give excellent results with popular 3D printers. Useful for tensile structures, organic surfaces ranging from exotic roofs to character meshes, these new tools make form•Z more versatile than ever before!
  • The form•Z interactive display modes have been completely rewritten to take advantage of modern OpenGL capabilities. This is most noticeable in Shaded Full display mode with new real-time ambient occlusionbump mappingsoft shadows, and multisampling features. These improvements aid in real-time visualization and design evaluation as they yield better depth perception and spatial definition. 

Sketchfab.com is a website that allows you to share your 3D models so others can view and navigate around the model in real time. You can publish your models through Sketchfab.com, or you can embed them into your own web pages. There is a new Sketchfab upload option in the Extensions menu that allows for uploads to Sketchfab directly from form•Z.


The numerous improvements throughout form•Z Jr:

  • The Tight Lofting option of the NURBS by lofting tool now supports the Closed in Depth (V) option.
  • The Offset Outline tool can be applied to multiple outlines in a single operation. This makes it possible to offset multiple outlines on different objects the same distance simultaneously. A new option has been added to apply the offset at the preset numeric distance in addition to the existing dynamic method
  • The Shift key now disables guide snaps in the Cone Of Vision making it possible to make subtle changes to view parameters.
  • Components can now be viewed by name using the new List view in the Component Manager. The new Component Information button displays information about a component including how many times the component is placed in the project.
  • Materials can now be organized into groups making it easier to organize projects with many materials.
  • The Materials palette has been updated to be consistent with all form•Z palettes including control items at the top of the palette and a context menu for quick access to features.
  • The .fmz file format has been optimized to make files more compact. A new File Optimization option has been added to the Project Settings allowing for even smaller project files. Files saved with Auto Save feature use the smallest size to improve performance.
  • The accelerator keys (accessed by pressing the space bar and typing) now work more logically by typing the name of the desired tool (or at least enough unique characters ). The option to use the previous method remains in the Tool Manager.
  • The DXF/DWG translators now support the AutoCad 2014 format. Export of DWF and SVG have been added.
  • ACIS support has been upgraded to r24.
  • RenderZone now uses Lightworks 9.1 which includes a number of performance improvements.
  • The Windows versions use a new installer making installation easier and better integrated with the Windows operating system.

V-Ray, the top of the line rendering software can be added to form Z. Create stunning renders on NVIDIA CUDA GPUs, CPUs or a combination of both. V-Ray includes a material library containing over 550 unique, realistic materials. V-Ray for form Z is compatible with form Z 8.5 and 8.6. 


                             Powerful hybrid rendering – You can render on NVIDIA CUDA GPUs, CPUs — or a combination of both.

                             Material library – over 550 realistic physical based materials, such as glass, coated plastics or metals, wood,stone and etc.

                             V-Ray Grass and fur - Realistic grass, fabrics and carpet now possible with V-Ray Fur.

                             Denoiser – With V-Ray's new denoising technology, you can automatically eliminate noise and cut render times by up to 50%!

                             Aerial perspective – Add realistic atmosphere and depth to your renders with V-Ray's new Aerial perspective controls.

                             Virtual Reality – Verify designs at 1:1 scale in popular VR headsets like Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR.

                             Cutaways with Clipper – Render sections and cutaways with ease using the V-Ray Clipper.

                             Powerful light calculations – the V-Ray Adaptive Lights algorithm will speed renders up to seven times faster on some scenes.

                             V-Ray Frame Buffer – Fine-tune your render’s color, exposure, and more directly in V-Ray’s frame buffer.
