MoI3D V3 Beta
A new MoI3D v3 beta is now available for download here. This looks to be the 2nd to last beta for v3; developer Michael Gibson is working on a few more remaining items. In the meantime, check out the sweet Variable Radius Fillets in action in the video after the break... ahhhh NURBS, the wonderful things you can do with those surfaces :)
Variable radius fillets - you can now define different radius values at particular points, using the "New point set" button as shown here:
New "Add sync points" option for Blend which lets you add in points to tell Blend which parts of the edges to connect together, overriding the default which just connects them by distance traveled along the curve.
Lots of tuneups for hidden line generation:
Update hidden line generation for DXF output and Make2D - don't refit rationals (like circles and ellipses) as cubics for DXF or Make2D output since unlike AI/PDF format these can handle full rational bspline output. Previously all hidden line generation was refitting cubic curves to the hidden line output.
Fix bug with incorrect bounds gathering for standalone curves.
Improve out of memory handling in hidden line generation, show "Insufficient memory" warning instead of just crashing like it previously did.
Backfacing silhouette detection. Improvements in backfacing detection at concave silhouette areas, Helps to reduce "hook" type overshooting visible curve areas at bases of cylidner protrusions and similar features.
Some fillet fixes separate from variable radius fillets:
Updated fillets to fix problems with fillets occasionally splitting into 2 long strips down their centerlines.
Fixed a bug with periodic fillets reported on the forum here:
Fixed a bug with viewport flickering when loading a 3DM file by double-clicking
Update deformations to allow attributes like style and names on faces and edges to persist. Fixes a bug reported on the forum here:
Update osx version - Update wineskin mechanism to avoid accumulating a bunch of directories under ~/Library/Saved Application State/12345.wineskin.prefs.savedState When these grew too numerous startup time could slow down a lot, or even prevent MoI from being launched at all. This version will also automatically clear out any old wineskin.prefs.savedState files accumulated from previous versions and should not make new ones anymore.
Add Portuguese UI strings from Duarte Ramos
Update history - fix file size bloating problem related to history reported in the forum here:
Update straight sections loft - Fix bug with straight sections loft, reported on the forum here (regression from v2):
Update moi.filesystem.openFileStream() - Update readLine method on a file stream to work with any length line, previously it was limited to only read lines up to 1023 characters in length.
Updated AI clipboard support for older version Illustrator compatibility on OSX. For doing a copy to clipboard using AI format on Mac, use the following for going into an older version of Illustrator like CS3 or earlier:
Fixed a bug with rail revolve on non-planar paths reported on the forum here:
