Me, too, when he bombarded the old Silo forum with a never ending MoI thread.

^LOL!


I'm not sure, I remember being on the Rhino beta development list - I used to totally believe "McNeel" was straight out Michael's company, in my mind, Rhino == Michael!

I purchased Rhino v1 and fell off at v2.

It was when I learned he had moved on to Microsoft, much to my horror, that I realized that Rhino wasn't his product!

I may have learned about MoI on the Silo forums as well, but I remember being so happy to see Michael was developing another "Rhino like" product, with a killer mesher to boot - SOLD!


The thing that had sold me the most about MoI at the time was because I was using Cinema 4D XL and when importing MoI's exports into C4D they looked >just as clean and crisp< as they did in MoI!

I read positive comments about MoI in several NURBS-related forum threads. I became intrigued and visited the MoI website, and after I started playing around with the trial version I discovered what a relatively hidden gem MoI is. Its no-nonsense workflow is unmatched. A joy to work with.

I've taken up 3D printing in my retirement and started 3D design with OpenSCAD. After 6 months or so I was casting around for a graphical alternative and stumbled across Cubify Invent and the tutorials prepared by Tom Meeks. Wasn't fully happy with Invent and noticed that Tom Meeks had also done a series of tutorials on MOI. Soon I was hooked.

I think I saw a mention of MoI over in the Strata3D forum. I had been looking for a solid modeler to compliment Strata's poly modeling tools and eventually settled on ViaCAD. Shortly after purchasing that I found MoI. Having an art, rather than an engineering background, I wish I had found MoI first. Michael has certainly captured lightening in a bottle with MoI!

ViaCAD still comes in handy for some of the trickier shell and fillets...

Via Alibre, before it became "Geomagic Design."
The "moribund" Geomagic design forum has a MoI section, but rarely does anyone post anything.

Trawling the web for hours looking for a decent and affordable NURBS modelling program, launched the trial for the very first time and didn't even bother looking at the others on my list, this was the one :)

Just a mention about MoI on the Rhino forum a few years ago. I would love to use MoI exclusively and when dimensions and line widths come to MoI that is exactly what I will do. MoI and Octane will be all I need. Just waiting for the day.
Now most of my design work happens in MoI but when I have to start dimensions I am forced to switch back and forth, with regret. MoI is so fluid ... I love it.

Yes, it was our great friend Pilou! :-)
On the SU forum.

I have Pilou to thank for Verve as well.

A post by Frenchy Pilou. Probably on Polyloop.net or ZBrush.fr...

Impossible for me to count the number of sites, resources or applications I discovered thanks to Frenchy ! :-)

Happy MoI user since beta version of August 13 2006...

I stumbled upon MoI in 2006. I've been a proud beta tester, user and supporter ever since!

I've become quite curious how Pilou discovered MoI. I suspect he already knew about it before Michael started its development. ㋡

Pilou posted about it in a forum in my mind and that's how I found out about it! ;)

Hahaha!! He can't do it alone, there must be thousands of little Pilous working for him!

I found it via the talkgraphic forum back around 2007 I think, I was sold instantly.
I'm drawn toward solid modeling, it's better suited for my needs to create fast models for illustration reference.

It was (once again), Pilou in the Silo forum.

He's like a software promotion army! ;-)
