Why Rhino?

There are many reason why Rhino has become an almost industry standard in Nurbs modeling in many fields. worldwide architects, designers, engineers, prototype’s, all use it for their design and constructions. either as main modeling application, or as add on to other tools.

also in combination with CINEMA 4D, Rhino is an excellent enhancement. it offers many tools and possibilities that are unthinkable in CINEMA 4D alone. rhino on the other hand misses good render and animation tools, or certain polygon modeling techniques. both together are  a power combination. now with rhino.io they work together perfect, in an much easier and streamlines way, than before.

some of the key things Rhino offers:

  1. Rhino can createeditanalyzedocument,renderanimate, and translate NURBS curves, surfaces, and solids with no limits on complexity, degree, or size. Rhino also supports polygon meshes and point clouds
  2. Uninhibited free-form 3-D modeling. Tools like those found only in products costing 20 to 50 times more. Accurately model any shape you can imagine.
  3. CAD work flow, Extreme precision. Design, prototype, engineer, analyze, document, and manufacture anything of any size no matter how small or how large.
  4. Unrestricted editing. Revise freely without concern about how you got there or where you want to go next.
  5. Large project organization. Work with both large models and large teams.
  6. Compatibility.  it can import a wide range of foreign cad and 3d file formats, in fact rhino is a very good file converter, reads solid works, most  iges flavors, step, sketchup. autocad,…
  7. File read and repair. Fix extremely challenging IGES and mesh files.
  8. Short learning curve. Focus on design and visualization without being distracted by the software.
  9. great node based and parametric modeling with the free included rhino  “grasshopper” tools
  10. super fast parametric creation of facades, free form roofs and shapes, complex panels with the free included rhino paneling tools
  11. many addons and plugin available; many architectural, design, naval, jewelery and terrain add ons…
  12. Direct connection. Support for wide variety of 3-D digitizing arms, 3-D scanners, and 3-D printers.
  13. Speed. Even on an ordinary laptop computer Rhino is fast. No special hardware is required.
  14. Affordability. Ordinary hardware. Short learning curve. Priced like other Windows software. No maintenance fees. Worldwide support is included.
  15. great subdivision (nurbs based) modeling addon, like in maya with T Splines addon)
  16. standard for high end architecture, building construction (OVE ARUP etc) & engineering, furniture design, product design, jewelery, naval architecture, show production(!) and many more, widely used worldwide
