I thought I'd better make a separate announcement, since the other one is midway through a different discussion thread.

The V2 release version is out!

It can be ordered from here: http://moi3d.com/purchase.htm

Over 2 years in development, and with tons of new and enhanced features, including:
    - Scene browser for manipulating sets of objects
    - Styles for setting up material assignments
    - Edit frame for quick scaling and rotation
    - New lighting engine for a greatly improved shaded display
    - New object orientation and positioning tools
    - Added file format support (SAT, STEP, FBX, and SketchUP)

And more...


There is a collection of the v2 beta release notes that has various illustrations and animations of the new stuff here:

Thanks very much to the MoI user community for playing such a vital role during the development of v2 with feedback and testing!

- Michael

Thankyou for allowing us to be involved Michael. I feel I'm the one who has had the real benefit from your beta program.

Hi Danny,

I think Michael will start to work on V3 one month from now, then release first beta one month after that :)
I really like to see in surface continuity improvement and basic 2D drawing/dimensioning :)

Lets wait and see !

As a new user to version 2 (although I played with the demo of version 1 when MoI first came out) I'm really impressed with how clean the GUI is and how easy the program is to pick up and use. Well done :)

One thing that I would suggest to Michael is check some of the tutorial links on the resources page. Not all of the tutorials are available now.

Hi Pilou,

> V1 is not more on the download page ?

You mean the v1 trial versions? No, those are obsolete now, since v2 is out I only plan to have the v2 trial versions listed on the download page.

It's a major step forward to remove the v1 trial versions from the download page, because before now people who were evaluating MoI for the first time were only getting to see the v1 stuff and missing out on the all the last 2 years of development that have gone into v2.

Why would you want to get the old v1 trial version now?

- Michael

Sorry Michael is right. Since version 2 is out and so much better it's time to remove version 1. Sure the price has gone up but at $295 US for a superb modeller it's still excellent bang for the buck. I'm not aware of any other 3D software developer that keeps on selling old versions once a new version is out.

Hi Pilou,

If someone wants to order V1, that is still possible - they can e-mail me and I will send them a link to the old V1 order page which will still work.

But I really don't recommend it - there have just been so many improvements to many basic areas in V2 that they would be missing out on, it would be wasting their time in many aspects to struggle with things that have been solved or added in V2.


At some point in the future I may have a separate "Lite" version that has some reduced features at a reduced price, but we are probably a few years away from that now.

- Michael

Hi, Michael, I'm just writing to let you know that this page needs to be updated to version 2 as well. Is this yours? It showed up on a google search on moi 3d tutorials. It sure looks like it should be yours if it isn't.
