Thanks. I want the ability to place bricks for arches, also bricks offset outwards in a design, offset inwards, and other victorian brickwork features, so I think actual modeling is what I need. I have seen how tracing over a design reference in modo, for example, could allow me to do a push/pull method and everything else. But, I'm really liking the way MoI "looks", the crispness of the vector lines and shading. I know I will be using it in some way.

It's occurred to me just now how a program such as MoI could make brick walls. Make a grid of tubes in the pattern of the mortar then boolean that inset just partly from a slab and there you've got the grid of mortar and also the raised bricks.
