VSR Shape Modeling and Analysis plug-ins allow to produce in Rhino high quality surfaces (Class A).
Check this new Audi Q5 video tutorial to learn more about VSR Shape Modeling and Analysis!
Next Tuesday, October 9th, McNeel Miami will be in Sao Paulo to present the latest on Rhino 5.0 and Grasshopper. Andres Gonzalez, Worldwide Manager RhinoFabLab, will be visiting FAUUSP (Faculdade de Arquitetura e Urbanismo da Universidade de Sao Paulo).
5:30 to 7 pm BRT
Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism
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
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.

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.
a very cool plugin for rhino:
in rhino you can round with variable adjustable radii:http://www.vimeo.com/3275232
grasshopper is part of rhino, it enables rhino to have nodebased procedual modelling features, usage is almost unlimited i guess:-)http://www.vimeo.com/7078045
here an overview video, from Matt Sedersberg, developer of Tsplines, my favorite rhino modeling plug- t splines:http://www.vimeo.com/3612829
t splines- one of the best rhino3d plugins!
check it out:http://www.vimeo.com/2537650
this vidoe shows nice how you can edit rhino nurbs control points:http://www.vimeo.com/4283768
here s little video that shows how to get started with rhino3d paneling tools, custom shapes:http://www.vimeo.com/4047815
> oh yes, it does, and it is good:-)
the rhino3d OSX team does not simple a port, but a complete new rewrite on osx, to make rhino osx a native osx app.
recently they added python, the rhino OSX builds are regulary updated. each rhino owner can download and use them
some vimeo screencast about the interface(not absolute recent rhino osx verisons – 11 month old)http://www.vimeo.com/4570149
