Maybe instead of just a new egg spline primitive we can get an egg 3d primitive too? ;)

How useful was the MCG kit for you guys? I saw the demos of it and it looked like it had good potential.

I've used it.

New icons and theme. Bits of it still think it's Max 2016.

I didn't spend enough time with it to see what's changed, but apparently the viewport performance is much better. My hour spent with it didn't turn up much new, but I'm not sure I was using the final release.

Also tried it, saw the new icons, apparently designed for 4k monitors, view-ports were quicker, seems to handle 1000's of little objects better, tweaked around with the new UI, I actually like the new light scheme UI.
A few enhancements here and there, got bored of digging around...then it started to crash like a ninja when doing basic things, so I gave up, also thought this can't be the final release.

That's not infinte scale FX, you need to zoom in on the calipers bleed nipple beveled edge.

Or you know... Ant man scale, gotta get to the quantum level!
