Rhino 8 Win/Mac

To be an effective designer today, you need tools to quickly develop your designs and accurately communicate them to everyone in product research, development, education, marketing, manufacturing or construction chain.
Start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, scan data, or only an idea – Rhino 8 provides the tools to accurately model and document your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing or construction.
Rhino 8 can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS* curves, surfaces, and solids, point clouds, and polygon meshes. New tools like SubD Creases, ShrinkWrap, Clipping & Sectioning command makes editing difficult surfaces and volumes a breeze. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size beyond those of your hardware. The improved render engine is very, very good.

Rhino 8 includes the visual programmer Grasshopper, automating complex designs, easily testing design variants.

Animation for designers: simple, integrated animation for Rhino 5. Just drag and drop to create animations in Rhino, so you won’t lose valuable time changing programs. You get your preview inside Rhino, in real time, in any shading mode. You can render to video using any compatible renderer, like Flamingo nXt or Brazil.
A zoomable timeline and a new curve editor give you great control over your animations. You can control many parameters with the state-of-the-art keyframe editor. You can create architectural animations, or create mechanical systems animations with the IK engine. Lots of practical functionality

Grasshopper for Rhino 5 Windows

For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper® is the right tool. It is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.
Programs are created by dragging components onto a canvas. The outputs to these components are then connected to the inputs of subsequent components. Grasshopper is now an integrated part of Rhino 6. Rhino 5 users can still download the former version of Grasshopper.
