Rhino Software

Modeling tools for transforming 3D design into reality

Rhino is a trusted industry solution for designers for modeling organic forms into CAD models. It’s the most versatile 3D modeler you will ever use.

Overview

Rhinoceros, also 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.

Rhino 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.

Applications

rhino 3d rendering

3D Rendering

High-quality presentation is critical to most design projects. Rhino presents your designs in the best light. Rhino 7 contains features for Rhino Renderer, materials, textures, and environments, texture mapping, camera views, lighting, mesh modifiers, and post-rendering effects.

3D Modeling to 3D Printing

With the cost of digital fabrication and 3D printing technology dropping quickly, more and more designers now have direct access to 3D digital fabrication equipment such as a 3D printer. Design and create watertight models in Rhino for printing applications.

rhino fabrication

Rapid Prototyping

Twenty years ago Rhino provided marine designers with tools for building computer models that could be used to drive the digitally controlled fabrication equipment in shipyards. Since then, Rhino models are accurate for use in many fabrication, manufacturing, or construction processes.

Featured Plug-ins

Mesh2Surface logo

Mesh2Surface

Mesh2Surface is a practical reverse engineering (Scan to CAD) solution that’s affordable to get you the results you need, faster and easier. The plugin contains simple but efficient tools to optimize the process of converting digitized objects from non-contact 3D scanners to perfect CAD models.

Features
  • Align object to world coordinate system.
  • Extract shapes (i.e. planes, spheres, cones, torus, and freeform surfaces).
  • Fit constraint primitives.
  • Find symmetry of an object.

Flamingo logo

Flamingo nXt

Uses raytracing and radiosity rendering to create single-frame images and animations.

Rendering

Create photometrically accurate images with reflections, refraction, diffusion, translucency, transparency, color bleeding, shadows, depth of field, depth attenuation, ClearFinish™, and indirect lighting.

Animation

Viewpoint animation for walk-throughs and fly-bys, and sunlight animation for shadow studies.


Bongo logo

Bongo

Brings professional animation into Rhino, using familiar keyframe tools found in most high-end animation packages.

Features
  • Move, scale, and rotate directly in Rhino.
  • Objects and viewport animations are editable in the Rhino window using simple drag and drop.
  • Modify your objects and motion data without losing valuable time changing between programs.
  • Easily preview your animations inside Rhino, in real time, in any shading mode. Then render straight to an animation file using any Rhino renderer.

Simlab composer 8

Simlab Composer

Create top quality rendered images and animations to produce rendered movies, VR scenes, and animated 3D PDF files.

Features
  • Import a model, perform texture baking, and export model as 3D PDF file to get impressive visualization.
  • Import your architectural model, use scene building capabilities to complete the scene, add IES lights, and use the interior render to get an amazing rendered image.
  • Use the Simulation feature to convert simulation results to animations, and render the output to get an impressive robotic animation.

Rhino Developer Tools

developer tools

Rhino pushes the boundaries of 3D modeling with developer tools that are free, royalty free, and include free support.

The tools for customizing Rhino include:

  • RhinoCommon SDK (.NET)
  • C++ Plug-ins (Windows only)
  • Food4Rhino

Supported File Formats

supported file formats

While other platforms lock you into one or two proprietary formats, Rhino makes sure it’s simple to open/import and save/export your files between your favorite programs so you can work efficiently.

Rhino 7 is compatible with most other design, drafting, CAM, engineering, analysis, rendering, animation, and illustration software. Rhino supports an array of file formats which makes it the 3D interoperability tool-of-choice. In this latest version, the fidelity for existing formats and support for SubD is improved where possible. In addition, you can now copy/paste between Rhino and Illustrator®, Inkscape™, and Affinity Designer® (Windows only).
