MoI v2.5 Mac OSX final version released!  1-20  21-36

The final release version of MoI v2.5 for Mac OSX is now available!

What started as a tentative experiment is now a reality, and I'm very happy to report that the Mac OSX version offers the 100% exact same feature set as the Windows version - no missing functionality! :)

The Mac version is now available to purchase from http://moi3d.com/purchase.htm .

The way ordering works now is that for every v2 purchase when you receive your license key through e-mail you also get download links for both the Windows and the Mac versions, and you just download whichever one you want, or both if you have both kinds of machines. License keys are cross platform, the same v2 license key works on both the Windows and Mac versions.

If you have already previously purchased the v2 Windows version, you can use your same existing license key for the Mac version, you do not need to purchase a new license. Just go to this web page and enter in your license key to download the v2.5 Mac final version: http://moi3d.com/reinstall.htm .


Thanks very much to all who participated in the public Mac OSX beta, I appreciate all your feedback and I hope that you enjoy using the new release. I'm looking forward to seeing cool stuff being done with it and I'm very excited to be able to reach a lot more people who previously would not have been able to use MoI! :)

- Michael

Thanks very much Burr & Danny!

Yeah even only a few months ago I was still not sure if it was going to actually come together or not but I'm glad that I stuck with it! :)

I am looking forward to getting things rolling on v3 again now too.

Congratulations Michael!

The port turned out really, really nice! Very fast and smooth.
I've used the beta a lot lately, and i've never had a crash, or any other issue with it.

Thanks for releasing this amazing program for the Mac.


Can't wait to see what new features you will add in V3. :-)

I just purchased the Mac version! Thanks so much, I've been using the beta for a bit over a month, and it has been a great addition to my C4D workflow! So great to have an affordable NURBS modeler on OSX!

Hi Michael,
is it possible to get a 64bit version?

i have large IGES files and must convert them in OBJ for big displays. With a fine mesh output MOI3D says there is not enough memory. I have 14 gigs RAM in my OSX workstation here...

btw. same file with open beta -> no problem when i converted it to .OBJ

Hi Chico,

> is it possible to get a 64bit version?

Sorry, but no it's not likely anytime soon as there is a lot of additional work involved to produce that.

See here for more details:
http://moi3d.com/forum/index.php?webtag=MOI&msg=5172.5

The easiest solution is to select something like half your objects and then use File > Export to export just those objects to a file and then invert the selection and do the rest to a separate file. Then in your render program import both of those files.

The "Export" command is short for "Export selected" - it writes out only the selected objects to the generated file instead of everything and doing that should help to reduce peak memory consumption.


Also you can lighten the memory load somewhat by changing a setting to use a rougher display mesh, that's a setting under Options > View as described here:
http://moi3d.com/forum/index.php?webtag=MOI&msg=4643.2

Setting the "Mesh angle" to a rougher angle like 25 degrees and unchecking "Add detail to inflections" will make for a somewhat rougher looking display but also lighten up the density of the display meshes and that can help reduce memory consumption by quite a bit on more complex models.


> btw. same file with open beta -> no problem when i converted it to .OBJ

There is nothing changed in this area since the open beta to the release version, so that's kind of odd. But it is possible to get that behavior with things that were just barely fitting within available memory space, if you have done anything different at all like opened other files within the same program session that can possibly lead to "memory fragmentation" and give you a slightly different result than a fresh program run.

I got this message:




My system Date it is Ok, i disable firewall, I did trash the app, redownload, and make a fresh install/run with the same result, so i can't figure what is wrong.

Any Ideas?

For the records, I had no issues with beta test versions,
