Are You Ready for the Most Significant Upgrade in the History of Rhino?
December 10, 20202 min read
We are very happy to announce the new release of Rhino 7.
These are the game changing new features that make this release one of the most significant upgrades in the Rhino history.
SubD is a new geometry type that can create editable, highly accurate shapes. Unlike other geometry types, SubD combines free-form accuracy while still allowing quick editing. SubD objects are highly accurate and can be converted directly to manufacturable solids. You can also convert scan or mesh data into SubD objects, then optionally to NURBS.
Rhino.Inside.Revit is an add-on for Revit that loads Rhino and its plugins (e.g. Grasshopper) into Revit’s memory. Rhino.Inside.Revit provides a set of tools for bridging the gap between Rhino’s free-form modeling and the world of BIM, opening Grasshopper’s rich ecosystem to the Revit environment, enabling completely new design workflows and possibilities.

Quickly create a quad mesh from existing surfaces, solids, meshes, or SubDs—ideal for rendering, animation, CFD, FEA, and reverse-engineering. You can use the robust QuadRemesh algorithm to create a beautiful quad mesh from NURBS geometry or meshes.
The improvements of the presentation tools in Rhino 7 start with a major update to the Rhino Render engine, so the same look from the Raytraced viewport can be rendered without any changes. There's also added support for PBR materials, a LayerBook command, and more…
In Rhino 7, some models will display significantly faster on both Windows and Mac. Several refinements to the Display Modes make them even more eye-popping while you work…
Documentation and Drafting
Modeling is just one part of the design process; you also need to show how to build what is on the screen. In Rhino 7, many parts of the documentation workflow has improved and so have the more graphically-rich illustration tools like transparency and gradient hatches…
Beside adding few Grasshopper components, it 's now even easier to turn your programs into plugins.
Rhino 7 brings major improvements to the free SDKs, with API refinements, better documentation, and some major new features that broaden and deepen the foundations of the geometry development platform.
Rhino 7 includes added workflow improvements like Named Selections, Mold Making tools, a Single-Line font for engraving, and improved interoperation with third-party file formats. Plus, hundreds of bugs have been fixed.
