Powerful, accurate, yet easy to use! MoI's sleek intuitive UI blends a fluid easy workflow with powerful tools, making it the perfect choice for anyone who has been frustrated with the complexity of existing CAD tools.
MoI is also a fantastic complementary tool for a polygon-based artist since its CAD toolset and advanced boolean functions enable extremely rapid creation of mechanical or man-made type "hard surface" models. The icing on the cake is MoI's unique polygon mesh export that generates exceptionally clean and crisp N-Gon polygon meshes from CAD NURBS models.
New in This Version

Added SubD import option for open boundaries behavior under Options > Import/Export > SubD import options
Update DXF/PDF/AI hidden line layer controls
Update view tabs - enable right click to get reverse views
Update file dialog filters
Add moi.ini option for LWO export to not write styles as materials/surfaces in the LWO file
Update STEP import/export - face colors
Update Construct > Curve > Isect "Curve from 2 views"
Update Trim - "stencil cut" options. Add options to Edit > Trim for deleting the cutting objects and for having a joined together result with "keep all" instead of always separating into pieces
Update selection texture readback on Wine - test for Nvidia driver bug with red/blue bytes swapped and compensate
Update command object model for properties undo
Add script properties to Face objects
And many bug fixes
MoI excels as a file translator from CAD type formats into polygon formats. Attractive to artists using a polygon / DCC type tool that handles multi-sided polygons (n-gons - such as Cinema 4D), MoI 3 shines by allowing for example the file conversion from Rhino 3D into Cinema 4D, instead of the direct export from Rhino (which can only export triangles and quads, not n-gons).
Learn CAD quickly and easily
New users find learning MoI easy, and regular users love the how MoI works flawlessly, handling difficult blends and fillets with ease.
More choices for digital artists
Digital artists who primarily work in a DCC type tool but need to occasionally build mechanical or industrial type parts where Booleans would work best choose MoI as a companion modeling tool. With it's small learning curve, artists can soon enjoy the freedom of using a toolset that works better for mechanical style shapes than poly tool sets. MoI thus also works well as a general industrial design tool, or for architects for non-standard building designs.
Pen-tablet friendly user interface.
MoI features a unique user interface that integrates particularly well with a pen tablet. Unlike most programs, you don't have to constantly tap the Shift, Alt, or Control keys, so you don't have to hover over the keyboard when using MoI. Also, as right-clicking tends to be awkward with a pen, MoI provides simple left-click methods for view manipulation functions that require right-clicking in other CAD programs.
High quality display on inexpensive cards.
MoI displays gorgeous anti-aliased curves even on low-end "gaming" video cards.
