Moment of Inspiration 3.0

MoI’s sleek intuitive UI blends a fluid easy workflow with powerful tools, making it the perfect choice for someone who has been frustrated with the complexity of existing CAD tools. MoI is also a fantastic complementary tool for a polygon-based artist since its CAD toolset and advanced boolean functions enable extremely rapid creation of mechanical or man-made type “hard surface” models. The icing on the cake is MoI’s unique polygon mesh export that generates exceptionally clean and crisp N-Gon polygon meshes from CAD NURBS models.
Pen-tablet friendly user interface. MoI features a unique user interface that integrates particularly well with a pen tablet. Unlike most programs, you don't have to constantly tap the Shift, Alt, or Control keys, so you don't have to hover over the keyboard when using MoI. Also right-clicking tends to be awkward with a pen. MoI provides simple left-click methods for view manipulation functions that require right-clicking in other CAD programs.

Customer Reviews

  1. Excellent in every way!

    by on

    I added MoI to my list of software after coming across it on an Instagram post by someone who does a lot of hard surface modelling. I normally use ZBrush and KeyShot, and I'm super pleased with MoI. Very low learning curve, outstanding support from the developer and other users by way of the forum on the MoI website, file output works like a charm across both ZBrush and KeyShot, plus there are number of great tutorials available on YouTube and Gumroad. I can HIGHLY recommend this program!

  2. Great 3D Program!

    by on

    With over 20 years in the architecture design field, I finally have the most simple to learn 3D program that provides excellent complex forms!

    Location: NYC

  3. Nice software and easy to learn/teach

    by on

    This is really a powerful software and the best part of it, it's that is simple to learn. My ten y.o. son is already producing his projects.

  4. Excellent Cad program

    by on

    Very simple to use and very powerful. Like a cut down Rhino with only the non essential features cut out.

  5. Moment of Inspiration 3D

    by on

    Excellent CAD modeller needs to develop with more facilities, e.g., layers control (not as Styles), import bitmaps for accurate tracing, gradient shading on vector drawings, as well, if possible on the imported raster (e.g., tif files, jpeg files, etc) and so on. I like to continue with it.

  6. MOI is Easy-to-Learn and Easy-to-Use 3D Modeling Software

    by on

    Because it can output your object designs as STL files and a license gives you both Mac and Windows versions, I recently purchased MOI (Moment of Inspiration) for designing things I want to make with a 3D printer. I found the tool menu and work space easy to customize and use. Lots of great video tutorials exist on the web, and tech support is nothing short of awesome. MOI was created by the same designer who produced Rhino; and while it loves drawing tablets, it also works well with a mouse. Although a lot less expensive than Rhino, MOI is feature packed - an excellent, easy-to-use design package for modeling things you can make with 3D printing and CNC machining. If you're new to 3D modeling, MOI is easy-to-learn and provides all the tools you'll need to translate the objects you imagine into reality.

  10. MOI is a shape conjuror!

    by on

    I’m an artist working with 3D printers and find MOI to be an amazing tool to make forms. You draw simple (or complex) lines and curves for your profiles and rails, hit LOFT or SWEEP and BOOM you have a new object. It exports smoothly to stl or obj files for further processing in other software or for direct printing. I still have a lot to learn, but there are many resources online and the developer will kindly and quickly respond to any questions.

  11. Best value in 3D Cad

    by on

    I have used many 3D cad programs over the last 17 years. The best of which was Rhino 3D. When Rhino did not install well on my Surface Pro 3, I began to look for alternatives. I was lucky to find MOI. It was apparently created by the same person that began Rhino. The user interface is well thought out and user friendly. Using MOI is like a breath of fresh air for me. I am extremely happy. I hope you give it a try. This software can save you many hours, with it's well thought out features.

  12. magical

    by on

    found the purchase and system to obtain the program so easy and painless. As soon as I downloaded MoI i set to work finding the program easy to use and understand - thoroughly enjoying my time with the program - and managing to complete the object i needed to make! - with ease.

  13. greath software inexpensive

    by on

    the best sofware for convert nurbs models (sat-iges-3dm) on poligonal (obj-fbx-lw). Ngons and quads. with Cinema 4d and Max only too many triangles and errors

  14. Great product

    by on

    I found this software looking for a replacement for Rhino that would run on Linux. This program is developed by one guy, one of the original developers of Rhino. Even though it doesn't have all the features that Rhino has, I like it better than Rhino in many ways. For example, the ability to easily select, copy, and paste subfeatures (e.g., faces, edges) of an object is very useful. There are a lot of other things I could name too. Support is great directly from the developer on the web forum. It's also much cheaper than Rhino, and it works perfectly on Linux through Wine 1.4.1.

  15. Great for into into CAD and user friendly

    by on

    For the absolute Beginner- but beware- TUTORIALS are mainly for those who already know CAD operations. Im an old dude- and CAD is the next evolution for my hobbies- MOI was the choice after a series of experiments and trials for these reasons: 1- based on RHINO (MOI's creator helped develop it) so moving into the next step will be easier 2- Forum of active users and not haughty engineer duffers (like Dessault Systems) that respond. 3- MOST (not all) RHINO tutorials are relevant in MOI- so you can learn on multiple platforms 4- Price is excellent for the capabilities (And I haven't even scratched what it will do) 5- Will export in all formats I need- The reason it only gets 4 stars not 5 is simple- IM AN OLD DUDE- yes- Im not afraid to admit it... I need a little hand-holding while learning things- the tutorials are written by whiz-bangers that fly through concepts I need to grasp... once I get them- cool- but until then... SLOW DOWN and start at A-B-C and 1-2-3... Until I found the RHINO tutorials can do some of the same concepts I was frustrated. HMMMmmmm- Maybe a "Geezer" series would be appropriate! HA!

  16. Absolute powerful and intuitive tool!
