Hi PL,

I think that Geomagic/Alibre has some pretty good printing support, so for the time being you should be able to bring your geometry into there for doing the printing.

I'm not sure when the printing will be implemented directly in MoI, it may be a while.

Hmm, I wonder if your device is actually getting physically stuck somehow. You might try using the "Calibrate" function in the 3D connexion control panel thingy.

You might also try using the most current MoI 3.0 beta which you can get from here:

If it's a problem with the hardware sensor actually getting stuck in some position then there probably isn't much that MoI itself would be able to do about that.

I would love to do an integrated image based sketch package, but there would be a tremendous amount of work involved in doing that, it's not really a feasible area for me to tackle.

If SketchBook Pro has the kind of behavior you need, then I'd recommend doing your sketch inside of SketchBook Pro and then bring your finished image into MoI as a background image, the tool for bringing in images into MoI is under View > Image:

There's nothing really specifically targeting the Cintiq, but just in general MoI has been created to be friendly for use with a drawing tablet and that general tablet friendly UI design should apply well to the Cintiq also. If you have the largest one you may want to increase the UI size in MoI to make the buttons and text a little larger, there is a slider for that under Options > General > UI size.

Thanks, I'm glad that you like it!

I'll be coming out with MoI v3 sometime this year but there are not currently any plans in place for how that will be incorporated with the Geomagic/Alibre bundle deal. Probably you'll be able to purchase a discounted v3 upgrade version for getting MoI v3.

Great News. I will definately give MOI 3.0 beta a try.

Thanks for your time!
