High quality, photorealistic 3D rendering for architectureand product design

Maxwell | form·Z offers seamless integration, allowing youto work comfortably within the form·Z interface. This product has beenspecifically designed for rendering in form·Z with a simple yet comprehensiveMaxwell toolbar. It brings you advanced Maxwell Render technology in a simple,self-contained package.

GROUND TRUTH QUALITY

Maxwell is all about quality. Period. This has been oursacred mantra for most than 15 years of development. Our secret sauce is aphysically-correct unbiased spectral engine, which produces not only beautifulimages but also lighting-accurate simulations. In fact, Maxwell is consideredthe ground-truth in rendering and CGI production. We strive to inspire others,and you inspire us.

 

MULTI-GPU SPEED

If you have ever heard that Maxwell is slow…well, it was.Our commitment to developing the most accurate render engine on the marketwasn’t negotiable. The story has changed in Maxwell 5. A fully rewrittenmulti-GPU core now delivers final results in minutes and accurate previews inseconds, keeping physical accuracy intact. With multiple GPUs working inparallel you’ll get an unprecedented Maxwell experience. With Maxwell 5, timeis now in your hands.

 

CLOUD SPEED

The new Cloud Render service allows you to access the mostpowerful machines available in the cloud (up to 96 cores) speeding up therender process and thus improving your productivity. Cloud render jobs can beeasily dispatched from Maxwell Studio and the plugins, freeing the localcomputer from high CPU loads. Cloud Render helps you optimize your time andresources more efficiently.

 

INTEGRATIONS

Maxwell 5 is seamlessly integrated in most of the major3D/CAD software solutions such as Rhino, SketchUp, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3dsMax, ArchiCAD, Cinema 4D and formZ. As an alternative, the standalone MaxwellStudio offers an independent production/rendering environment to create, editand render Maxwell scenes. Render nodes and network tools for advanceddeployments are included. Maxwell is available for Windows, MacOS and Linux.

 

Maxwell Integrations offer an easy workflow which allow youto compose, edit and render your scenes from a simple toolbar inside your usual3D application.

 

Maxwell Integrations come with the full Maxwell toolkit –including:

 

Maxwell Production Engine

Multilight™

FIRE (interactive preview engine)

Materials Editor

Real camera model

Network tools

The Maxwell for formZ product contains the standalone Maxwell Render application for rendering, the Material Editor application, and a full-featured Maxwell plugin that integrates Maxwell rendering into formZ.

COMPATIBILITY:

Maxwell 5 for formZ supports these configurations:

Windows:

  • formZ 9 Pro, JR, and Free (version 9.0.0 or greater)
  • formZ 8 Pro & JR, 64 bit (version 8.0.2 or greater)

OS X

  • formZ 9 Pro, JR, and Free (version 9.0.0 or greater)
  • formZ 8 Pro, JR, and Free (version 8.0.2 or greater)

The minimum system requirements for Maxwell Render V5 are as follows:

Windows

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Windows Server 2012 or Windows 10
  • 2 GHz Intel® Core2 processor, AMD Athlon 64 or better
  • 1GB RAM minimum. 16 GB of RAM memory is highly recommended
  • 1.7 GB available hard disk space for installation
  • Accelerated OpenGL drivers
  • 3 button mouse recommended

Mac

  • MacOS 10.11 (El Capitan), 10.12 (Sierra), 10.13 (High Sierra), 10.14 (Mojave) and 10.15 (Catalina).
  • 1 GB RAM minimum. 16 GB of RAM memory is highly recommended
  • 1.7 GB available hard disk space for installation
  • 3 button mouse recommended

Linux 64

  • x86_64 distribution with a 2.6 Kernel and glibc 2.5
  • Tested on Debian GNU/Linux 7 (wheezy), Fedora Core release 6 (Zod), CentOS release 6.5 (Final), Ubuntu precise (12.04.2 LTS)
  • 2 GHz Intel® Core®2, AMD Athlon 64 or better
  • 1 GB RAM minimum. 16 GB of RAM memory is highly recommended
  • 1.7 GB available hard disk space for installation
  • 3 button mouse recommended

GPU engine

  • Graphics cards that support CUDA platform (Nvidia), running on Windows. No AMD or Intel will work, sorry.
  • The drivers should be up to date.
  • Maxwell, Pascal, Volta and Turing architectures are supported (for reference you can check this table); it could work on Kepler architecture but it could be unstable and the experience won’t be good.

Denoiser

  • Denoiser is capable of running on CPU or GPU, with NvidiaAMD and Intel graphics cards; it works with CUDA (Nvidia) and also can work using OpenCL either in GPU (Nvidia, AMD or Intel) or CPU.
  • When using GPU, we recommend having a graphics card with at least 2.5GB. This number is actually dependent on frame size, 2.5GB is for 2k pixels square imagery.
  • When using Nvidia CUDA, the drivers should support at least CUDA 7.0
  • When using AMD, the Catalyst driver should be up to date.
  • In the case you get an error message when using CPU about OpenCL ICDs, it will probably be solved by installing one of these packages depending on your OS:
  • The Denoiser will first try to use CUDA, if it doesn’t find a compatible card, it will fallback to OpenCL GPU (usually with AMD and Intel cards). If the image doesn’t fit in the graphics card memory, you can then use OpenCL with CPU (which will use RAM memory).
