V3 imminent?  1-20  21-35

Hi,

Sorry for asking the very obvious question (and I guess very regularly at that). I can no longer withstand MoI's awesomeness and would like to buy it. But I thought - maybe maybe you are just about to release v3. Might as well wait a bit if that's the case.
I am using an Ultimaker 2 and made the same "mistake" there. Bought the UM1 and a few weeks later they released the UM2... Not that I need to always have the latest toy, but since it is my beloved hobby, I dare to want it to :)

thx,
Stefan

Hi Stefan, yes MoI v3 is very close to being done, I'm hoping to release the last v3 beta in hopefully the next couple of days and then I'll need to do a pass through updating documentation before the final release will be ready. I'm not exactly sure how long that will take but I hope not too long.

- Michael

Fantastic news

Would you consider adding the Customui that Max wrote ?

It has made my ring design work probably 50% faster especially the object library

It does not cluster the interface and has 4 very useful areas for functions I regularly use.

The lighting styles are very cool and I find the car body suits jewellery



Kind regards

I would treat the CustomUI as a 3d party plugin maintained by the developer as it would be another thing Michael would have to consider with each new release and I'd rather him working on new features and not spend time debugging the stuff that's been developed for convenience.

It's like asking if we could have all the scripts that have been developed to be included in MoI, I like how MoI is now, less is more and if you want the niceties like the CustomUI just plug it in.

I would ask the question to Max if he could make an executable to install the customUI for you, I would even donate for that.

Just my thought.

Hi shayne,

> Would you consider adding the Customui that Max wrote ?

No, I haven't really thought about doing that. I do want to include something along similar lines in the future but I haven't had a chance to do it yet. For example the lighting options I would probably end up putting under the View palette rather than on the bottom toolbar.

But by all means if the customui helps you out you should install it - that's what's nice about being able to customize MoI, that you can use extensions that help you out.

I take your point about Michael developing new features. I would consider the customui bar a valuable feature that is so useful it has my vote,
Convenience has its place in life also :)
The very simplicity of it works well within the MOI layout, not overcluttering the screen (its dead space down there anyway).
Its so good I also would donate to max for an installer.
regards
shayne

Hi Michael,

I am new to Moi and this Forum and like to write first of all that I am really impressed with your work and the Moi community.
Please can you advice if anyone would buy the current version now, would that include a free upgrade to version 3?

If that will not work, can you provide an indication when the final release of v3 is expected?

Thank you and best regards,

Tarek

Yes, I'm planning on doing that. I have not worked out all the specific details yet for how far back from the v3 release date free upgrades will be covered.

I still don't have a specific date set, but hopefully something like a few weeks from now. The main thing remaining is some work to update the documentation.

I've been ready to buy for some time now, but having a very circumspect department of bean-counters to keep happy, I've been waiting for the upgrade details. Can't go back to them in three weeks and say I need another $100 for an upgrade to a program I just purchased.

And I'm SURE I can't live without V.3 ...

Just say the word and you've got my cash.

M.

Thank you Michael,

I used the free trial version for a while and couldn't resist to buy the licence for version 2 this morning.
It would be great if this purchase is within the free upgrade cover for version 3.

I really like this Software!

Best regards,
Tarek

Hi Tarek, thanks for your order, I'm glad that you are enjoying MoI!

Yes it will be, you will get an automatic upgrade to v3 when it's released. I'm not sure yet exactly how far back the free upgrade "grace period" will extend for but it will definitely be far enough that any orders placed now will be covered.

Huzzah! That's what I've been waiting to hear! Look out MoI, here I come...

Hi Michael,

I finally got a decent machine for running MoI (a used MacPro5.1) and I look forward to v3 as well!
Unfortunately I couldn't spend much time on my hobby since back then, hope that'll be different now...
Thank you for your dedication!

Best regards,
Chyman
