Rhino.io is a connection and import/export plugin, that lets you directly open and save native Rhino files (3dm) from within MAXON CINEMA 4D. In addition, models that were changed in Rhino can be updated into CINEMA 4D while keeping material assignments and other changes inside CINEMA 4D intact, enabling you to work with Rhino and CINEMA 4D side by side.
Rhino could therefore act as a “NURBS plugin for CINEMA 4D”, connecting the best of both worlds. Rhinos precise and extensive CAD and NURBS tool set can be combined with CINEMA 4Ds modern and flexible texturing, shading and lighting tools.
Models imported with rhino.io are also ready to use for any high quality 3rd party rendering engine such as VRAYforC4D, Maxwell, Fryrender and more.
