Hi andras, I think really your best bet is Rhino - the Rhino people have a developer who I believe is completely focused on working on special tools to do that, see here:

Sure the Rhino UI will take some getting used to, but it shouldn't be too difficult for you to learn how it works. Plus it works together well with MoI - you can move objects back and forth between Rhino and MoI very quickly with copy and paste.

You may also want to check out ParaCloud:

or also:

But you should definitely look into using some more specialized tool for producing what you are showing there.

MoI is just not the best tool to use for what you are describing, you need something that has been much more specialized for that particular purpose.

It's like you're saying "I really like this hammer, it is my favorite tool - how can I use my hammer to now put in some screws?" ...
