Rhinoceros 5 

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 5 provides the tools to accurately model and document your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing or construction.
Rhino 5 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.

Rhinoceros 30-user lab license (Windows or Mac)

  • A 30-user license to use Rhino 5 on the computers in a single classroom or lab (one room). A network is not needed.
  • Or, a 30‑user floating network license. A network and the ZOO is required.
  • For educational institutions only (proof of status is required).

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.

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

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.
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 is a free download.

Clayoo

It is like modeling by hand: that’s the concept of Clayoo®. Modeling from any geometry: surfaces, solids, meshes or from a sketch. Clayoo is about the ease of pulling, pushing and moving until your model fits your idea. Clayoo feeds the imagination.
Clayoo can also help you in reverse engineering using advanced tools as Retopology, which allows you to create surfaces over digitized objects easily, and convert the object to Nurbs surfaces.
The Clayoo geometry is the perfect start for fabrication of prototypes and molds. Just export the STL file, it automatically generates closed meshes.
