Rhino is a versatile 3D modeler used by designers for modeling organic forms into CAD models. It’s used widely in industries including architecture, industrial design, product design, multimedia, and graphic design.

Bring Your Designs to Life

Rhinoceros, commonly known as Rhino or Rhino3D, is a 3D CAD modeling software package that enables you to accurately model your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing.

With Rhino, you can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS curves, surfaces and solids, subdivision geometry (SubD), point clouds, and polygon meshes. Available for both Windows or macOS, there are no limitations on complexity, degree, or size of the model you design beyond those of your hardware.

Rhino 8 Tool Highlights

Design, model, present, analyze, realize

Rhino 8 has new modeling tools like ShrinkWrap, a huge speed boost for Mac users, simplified modeling workflows, SubD Creases, improved clipping and sectioning tools, a more customizable user interface, a faster render engine, new Grasshopper data types, and much more…


Create Watertight Mesh

ShrinkWrap is great for 3D printing applications to create watertight mesh around open or closed meshes, NURBS geometry, SubD, and point clouds.

ShrinkWrap is ideal for creating:

  • Meshes for 3D printing.
  • A solid union mesh from multiple objects.
  • A solid mesh from 3D scan data fragments.
  • Meshes without internal self-intersections.
  • Offset meshes for shelling.
  • Meshes from point clouds when reverse engineering.
  • Valid closed meshes from broken or often hard-to-repair geometry.

Built for Mac

SubD Creases

Design in Organic Shapes

New in Rhino 8, SubD Creases create a feature between a smooth and a sharp edge, great for making fillet-like features for a more organic look. SubD is a new geometry type that can create editable, highly accurate shapes for designers who need to explore organic shapes quickly. Unlike other geometry types, SubD combines free-form accuracy while still allowing quick editing. SubD objects are highly accurate and can be converted directly to manufacturable solids. You can also convert scan or mesh data into SubD objects, then optionally to NURBS.
