educational labs & classrooms

Introduction

For all and every school we provide the necessary licenses for a successful and positive educational curriculum. Around Rhino 6 for Win & Mac, a vast amount of planets is encircling the 3D star – The Rhino Universum.

Within this Rhino universum, we offer basic tools, and plugins for a wide range of specific tasks, and state-of-the-art hardware, to – eventually – produce real-life objects:

  • Trotec lasers (cutting/model making – engraving – marking)
  • Leapfrog 3D printer3

Rhino 6 for Mac & Windows

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 6 provides the tools to accurately model and document your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing or construction.
Rhino 6 can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS* curves, surfaces, and solids, point clouds, and polygon meshes. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size beyond those of your hardware.

Rhino 6 now includes Grasshopper, the visual programmer

Rhinoceros 30-user lab license (Windows or Mac)

  • A 30-user license to use Rhino 6 on the computers in a single classroom or lab (one room). A network is not needed.
  • Or, a 30‑user floating network license. To manage your license use your network and the Zoo, or use the Cloud Zoo.
  • For educational institutions only (proof of status is required).

Rhino 6 School Kit

A Rhino School kit is a bundle of a Rhino Lab license and a set of  Educational single-user licenses* at a special price:

  • Rhino Lab License + 100 Educational single-user licenses*
  • Rhino Lab License + 50 Educational single-user licenses*
  • Any additional Educational single-user license*

*Regular Educational single-user license terms apply to this license.

Flamingo nXt

Flamingo nXt was developed for designers. You don’t need to be a computer graphics professional to quickly present your Rhino model in the best light.
In Rhino, just click Render to try the Flamingo nXt defaults, or spend a few minutes to select a lighting scenario and add some materials before you click Render. It is very easy to use.
With Flamingo nXt you don’t need to be a professional renderer to get realistic results quickly. You provide materials and lighting and press the Render button. Flamingo nXt provides the simulation.

Bongo

Animation for designers: Bongo – 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.
Bongo has a zoomable timeline and the new curve editor gives 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. Bongo provides you with lots of practical functionality.

Penguin

Penguin, a non-photorealistic render engine brings freehand sketching, watercolor painting, cartoon-like rendering and technical illustration to Rhino.
More precise: Penguin is a conceptual, sketch and cartoon, non-photometric scan line renderer. With Penguin you can create stylized images of your models with an artistic look for enhanced graphic and visual appeal.
Penguin 2.0 runs inside Rhino and has the same hardware requirements. Rhino with Penguin runs on ordinary Windows desktop and laptop computers.

Brazil

Top artists and designers from every type of industry rely on the Brazil render engine for their most demanding work. Whether showing off the latest designs for a new mobile phone, doing site-accurate visualizations for a new resort-hotel, or generating images of your newest jewelry designs, Brazil can help you create stellar imagery quickly and easily.
Brazil is a fantastic rendering plugin, and even more than that. Brazil is like Flamingo nXt tightly integrated with Rhino, and a bit more complicated. It takes a bit more time to get to the depth of settings. Eventually the learning curve isn’t too steep, and results quite satisfying.

Grasshopper now included with Rhino 6

For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper® for Rhino 5 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.
The visual programming language was developed by David Rutten at Robert McNeel & Associates. Programs are created by dragging components onto a canvas. The outputs to these components are then connected to the inputs of subsequent components. Grasshopper for Rhino 5 is a free download.

2SHAPES

2Shapes for Rhino aims to solve all the jewelry design needs, helping jewelers around the world.
2Shapes for Rhino has powerful features: the intuitive parametric interface and clear menus allows you to change any property of your design, from finger size, gem, profile, including the thickness of prongs.
Simplicity is a must; for that reason, you don’t need to worry about complexities and focus on the results, your perfect design.

RhinoResurf

RhinoResurf for Rhino, a reverse engineering tool that gives Rhino the ability to reconstruct NURBS surface(s) from mesh or point cloud with specified precision.
RhinoResurf also provide features for free-form surface modeling from polygon lines or meshes.
RhinoResurf is designed in a way that the plugin is very user friendly, and easy to understand. Once loaded manually on first use, it will automatically load itself into the Rhino environment later. The new commands will be added to Rhino’s existing commands, and a new submenu called RhinoResurf will be created.
