Hi Burr, well that's very mysterious behavior, since the new Aug release does not install anything that would be shared between the previous beta and itself...

Maybe it would be a good idea to do a system reboot?

The only thing that is normally shared between 2 installs is the moi.ini file when it is set in its default location.

Hi Burr,

> Is there anything in this release installed outside of the MoI folder?

Nope.... Other than a few additional command files (BoundingBox, ExplodeMove) there was actually no change in the installer for this release from the previous one.

Hi Paolo,

> The metallic option is nice but to much dark shadows.

Yeah it does tend to have that effect somewhat. Probably in the future when there are other environments that could be loaded it would make it a bit more varied and subtle.

But it's also purely optional, you can just leave it turned off if you don't like it...


> I vote for the "Custom + Fill Levels" option,which shows me
> the best overall performance.

Once you set that option, it should be remembered as the default for your regular working mode after that.

The script copier utility for this release.

You can download and run the attached ScriptCopier_Aug_8_2009.exe program, which will copy custom added scripts from your MoI v1 installation to the new beta's installation folder.

Michael,
Just booted to a clone disk from about a week ago. It's me. Sorry, talk later.

It may have something to do with acronis, or my machine is compromised. Have you ever heard of Registry keys in the root of HKCU?

I haven't heard of that before, but the registry is such a big pile of stuff it's pretty hard to gauge what is normal in there and what isn't.

But I don't seem to have any entries like that in my registry over here.

Michael,
Sorry for any undue concern or added workload on the initial release.

The August release installs and runs fine on other computers.

Nice job,
Burr

Hi Burr, no problem - thanks for testing it on other computers!

Something on your main computer seems to be interfering with MoI running scripts in its normal way.... Maybe a development tool is hooking into it and modifying behavior, or something like that? I'm not really sure.

Thanks Michael !

Just had a chance to have a play and there are some nice features in this beta, V2 is coming along nicely, it's amazing how the colours give MoI a different feel, maybe it's just me.
The pre selection highlight effect is quite cool, so far everything is running smoothly over here.

Well Done!
~Danny~

No it's not just you Danny. I like the colours too, and the new lighting lets me set things up the way I want. Good stuff from Michael as usual :-)

Hi Michael,

>> Implemented new lighting engine.

Excellent! I like it. Shiny pastel-like color surfaces - it is so cute.



>> Updated SAT export - closed surfaces are now split into 2 joined half pieces

It won't apply in case of writing the analytic surface (i.e. moi.ini WriteAnalyticSurfaces=y), will it?



>> some additional ways to control keyboard behavior

Many thanks!
I added a few .js files with proper text within it (e.g. moi.command.execCommand( 'BooleanDifference' ) or moi.geometryDatabase.lock();) into the scipts directory and put the file name the same as an alias I want to use (e.g. bd.js). Now I can trigger the command BooleanDifference by typing bd<space>. Very nice!
I only had to discard a one-letter keyboard shortcuts like Space and B (or any other shortcut letter which was the first letter one of aliases) since they seemed to have priority.


>> Things are getting very close to being wrapped up for the MoI v2.0 final release

There is still no command prompt for Show pts command when running command without preselection like I mentioned many months ago... and I think the options dialog window section "View" needs sorting a bit (Import/Export section sets a good example). It looks quite chaotic after you added a couple of new (more or less related) buttons and checkboxes in a reckless manner ;)

Added a "both sides" option for the Line command to make it a bit easier to draw a line starting from the midpoint.

Added a new BoundingBox command which can be set up on a keyboard shortcut, which will create a bounding box (either a 3D solid box, or a 2D rectangle curve) framed around the current selection.

Added a new BoundingBoxCenter command which can be set up on a keyboard shortcut, which will create a point object to mark the center of the bounding box framed around the current selection.


Wow Michael its so awesome!
Thanks for all your hard work, and thanks for the new lighthing system also.
Im gonna play with MoI all the night :D

Wow, that's a great release!

Thanks, it seem to be working great here so far.
Thanks for all the tweaks and the hard work!

The group feature is like a teaser now, coming soon to a monitor near you...

Hoping to see it soon!

Hi Michael,

The new lighting is such a joy for my poor eyes :) great job !!!!

My only thought when I see the new 'hidded' command (explodemove, bounding box) and all the old extra scripts, it's probably time
to have a custom popup tab that you can populated with all your prefered command/scripts ... but I guess it was allready discussed over and over :P

Hi Michael,

Just playing with multiple style,
Do you thing is it possible to add some rules on fillet/chamfer command to avoid this kind of problem ?

 3 tubes boolean added, 2 white style and a red style ... when adding a fillet on this example, they all turn in red. (Image 1) ... I was hoping to have more something like in the image 2.

I wonder what a popup in rhino, of all the available commands and scripts and such would look like?? :O

I think its just a matter of waiting till the release, and the documentation of commands that can be browsed and added for special purpose. Doesnt Documentation come last?

For now I think that list is on the Petr's MoI page.

I filleted the objects, then booleaned, then filleted again, but had no control of which was the "parent Style" the fillet would derive from.

Always came from the 2 bottom cylinders. Is it More Mass determines?

It seems it would be something to have control over.
