Hello! I am trying out Rhino3D for the 2nd time. First was probably when it was v5. Now it’s v6. I want to either buy and use Rhino3D or FormZ Pro v9. This post is my attempt at getting someone to help me compare these two 3D modeling CAD softwares (head to head). Please, since I’m not logging into forums much at all, reply to me on Twitter: @Eidsmore (guy with eidsmore.weebly.com website link) or Email: email@example.com after seeing my list (at 40 seconds pause & pause again after 10 more seconds or so) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABlcJma-hiE or go to YouTube and type in minecraft2cad and see the video that compares 12 CAD programs to each other (to get my list that compares CAD to each other)
This is a list of what I feel so far are pros and cons of FormZ Pro vs. Rhino3D (pros/cons for FormZ Pro, relative to Rhino3D)
Pro: error FREE
Con: lacks as many plug-ins or extras (with is also a pro when it comes to it costing less)
Pro: right click on any tool to get help for that specific tool (very easy to learn)
Con: not as popular
Even: both have perpetual lic. options and I like that
Even: both have non-photo realistic rendering and animation capabilities without the need for any plug in (correct me if Rhino does not have either one without a plug-in)
Pro: FormZ is better for hobbyist like myself (so far)
Pro: does not upsell as much (a con also since it lacks as many extra programs that can work with it called plug-ins)
Even: both have mesh, surface, and solid modeling methods/types
OK, so let me know your thoughts by responding by the above contact info. I forget my password to Rhino forums so I won’t be coming on here again (unless somehow I change my mind on which one is overall better for me). FormZ Pro v9 seems better. Remember, I am a hobbyist so this is might not be true for people in the industry/jobs depending upon the exact job. Agree?
Also, how do I (or can I) go into settings/shortcuts and change certain navigation things my way? I want the spacebar to be pan (hold down and move mouse), zoom in/out (incremental zoom) both plus and minus keys on my keyboard (numpad and near the backspace key), and rotate view/orbit should be set to just a right click and hold is how I remember having them set in my other CAD program (called ViaCAD Pro). And I want a black background (which I’ve done), but also green objects/lines. How? Or cannot be done in Rhino3D!?
