Auto.des.sys Releases Form.Z 4.0.3

New version adds Panther support By Dave Nagel
Auto.des.sys has released a path for Form.Z, the company's 3D modeling application. The new 4.0.3 version adds support for Mac OS X 10.3 ("Panther"), which is set for release tonight. It also includes bug fixes for all operating systems supported. It's available now for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

Form.Z is a solid and surface modeler with a variety of 2D and 3D manipulation and sculpting capabilities. Version 4.0 was released Sept. 15 and included interface and performance improvements, as well as a new network renderer; new rendering modes, including a sketch renderer, point-cloud re-rendering and STEP translation; and 22 new modeling tools, such as lofting, new blending and filleting and additional parametric editing capabilities.

The 4.0.3 update adds compatibility for Mac OS X 10.3, which the company says also improves rendering performance by 10 percent and also provides overall OpenGL performance improvements. In addition, version 4.0.3 fixes problems reported on the Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows versions of Form.Z.

Form.Z 4.0.3 is available now as a free update for current users on Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows. Auto.des.sys says it's continuing to build improvements for the next release, which is expected in the first quarter of 2004.
