The following 3-D models were created in Moment of Inspiration - or "Moi" (pronounced "mo-eye").
Moi 3D is a NURBS based 3-D Design/CAD and solid modeling program created
by Michael Gibson of Triple Squid Software Design.
It's uniquely simple user interface and construction methods, along with it's easy learning curve make this design program a "must try".
