Veesus Point Clouds For Rhino

Rhino Plugin

* Specifically designed to work with Rhino 5, Rhino 6, and Rhino 7

Plugin for Rhino that empowers you to edit massive point cloud data natively inside Rhino CAD modeling software.

Once the point cloud has been loaded into the Rhino environment, the plugin also offers powerful point cloud manipulation tools including slicing, clipping, smoothing, lighting, magnification, color ramp, and export.

If you are already a Rhino CAD modeling software user and want to work with point cloud data, Veesus Point Clouds for Rhino is a perfect solution for you! There’s no need to learn another software. Simply import and work with point clouds of any size right in Rhino and get to work right away.

Reverse Engineering Using Point Cloud as a Reference

Reverse engineering with enormous point cloud data can be tricky. However, with Veesus Point Clouds for Rhino, it has specific tools like Clash Detection and Slicing that make this process much easier.

Clash Detection

Clash Detection

You can take a native Rhino entity, see exactly where it is clashing with point cloud data, and be able to fix it on the spot. This is especially useful for designs that complement with point cloud data to ensure a good fit. The clash detection function can quickly determine whether designs will fit in the buildings and you can adjust as needed.

Key Features

Work effortlessly with point cloud of any size inside Rhino CAD modeling software.

Set Origin

Set Origin

When you import point clouds into Rhino, it is usually loaded arbitrary in space. You can align and move the origin of point cloud data in Rhino so it’s easier to work with.

Plane Analysis and Plane Through Points

Plane Analysis and Plane Through Points

Using Veesus Point Clouds for Rhino, you can perform plane analysis and generate a CSV file to show the deviation from a flat surface. You can also create a plane from points.

Copy and Delete

Copy and Delete

Easily copy and delete parts of point cloud. You can also restore data points you delete.



Highlight subtle features with a programmable shader. The planar shader colors data along a plane or vector from a given position or offset. It is a great way to see the differences in height on surfaces that might otherwise look flat.
