Title: 1986 - AMX 3D Zicon
Post by: ComSoft6128 on 08:58, 05 September 20
"3D" design package from AMX software.

Unfortunately due to a hardware problem the mouse cursor "hops, skips and jumps" across the screen but normal mouse operation is much smoother!

3D ZICON is similar to Model Universe from ARNOR Ltd but has a better designed and more user friendly interface.

So THIS is how they developed REZ, right?

Holy cow a simple wireframe CPC version of Rez would be amazing!
Rez-lite, with very basic graphics, but still eh?

If someone can write a slicer plugin for this I could use it for my 3D printer :D

There is a plotter driver for the program - maybe someone here could modify it for 21st century use?  ;D
