Any plans for 64 bit Furniture Maker ?

Just wondering if there are any plans to add 64 bit compatibility for the furniture maker plug in. Currently I am starting out with TurboCAD Deluxe and then the plan is to upgrade to the Pro version in 2 - 3 months.

If there is no plan to add 64 bit to 'FM' - is it okay to run it on my current 64 bit set up or do I need to install the 32 bit version of TC also ?

In addition, do I absolutely need the Lightworks plugin for FM ?

and lastly... if I'm planning to eventually use the pro version of TC do I really need FM at all - what is the main advantage of using the FM plug in ?

I found the most relevant answer to my questions in this previous post thanks:


Should have read this post first, what has been said makes a whole lot of sense.

Thanks to Tim Stewart and WillR



EDIT: Hmmm, after reading a lot more posts in the furniture maker forum, I am convinced that my best option is to head for TurboCAD pro only, for now anyways!

I contacted IMSI support about a 64 bit possibility for Furniture  Maker and I have been told by Bob Mayer that the developer of Furniture Maker is currently working on a 64 bit version and it should be ready by late fall this year.
So it seems things will be looking up for this plug in after all.

That would be nice.

I have my computers (and FM and TC 21) working again. My shop should be back together again after a move to new quarters.

A 64 bit version would be nice to see and I would definitely buy!
