RhinoBIM Beta 3.8.49 Available

RhinoBIM is a suite of a number of plug-ins to enhance Rhino 5.0 for the Architectural, Engineering and Construction Industries. Developed by Virtual Build Technologies LLC, the first module now available is called RhinoBIM Structure, for 3D structure modeling, Clash & Clear Analysis and Structural Analysis.

Using Rhino 5.0’s new light extrusion technology, RhinoBIM Structure builds 3D structural design elements that are much lighter in data weight significantly decreasing model size.

With the light database the Clash & Clear analysis finds errors within seconds and there is no need to export the model to another program to perform the analysis.

RhinoBIM Structure Features:
• RhinoBIM components are compatable with Grasshopper
• Robust tools for adding and editing structural steel beams
• Extensive library of steel shapes, including international standards
• User definable steel shapes
• Assign materials, attributes, and process treatments to each element
• Data extraction through translators for CIS2, IFC and Beam to NURBS
• Very fast Clash & Clear analysis
• Bim Reporter to excel of objects
• Very large model support using new Rhino 5.0 technology

Additional Structural Analysis Features:
• Automatic meshing
• Beam shell and solids
• Commercial and freeware solver options, including, Lisa, ANSYS, GSA

New RhinoBIM_Structure Work-In-Progress 1.3 is available:



great news, a set of BIM plugins is beeing developed and available in beta for rhino 5(beta).

from press release from Virtual Build Technologies:

“…Rhino is very similar to CATIA V4 with its Explicit, NURBS based modeler. It is light in its data base, easy to learn, easy to use and very cost effective in comparison to all the others. Rhino has been discovered by architects over the past few years for these very reasons. The architectural community has discovered its strengths on their own and now more than 100,000 licenses of Rhino have been purchased for architecture.  (link to I want my BilbaoShop Architects use Rhino pdfs)”

LAVA- Laboratory for Visionary Architecture

let architecture grow:-)

quite an amazing grasshopper setup for this skyscraper, by LAVA architects:

aricle here. the idea is basically to hide ugly architecture under a new package, instead of tearing it down. this would be more ecological, and save resources ad money.

some grasshopper node stuff

April 16, 2010

grasshopper is part of rhino, it enables rhino to have nodebased procedual modelling features, usage is almost unlimited i guess:-)
