What makes Rhino 3D so special? The power of the NURBS modeling commands? The affordable price? The strong and supportive community? The kindness and generosity of the McNeel team? Or the powerful set of plugins available to expand the Rhino 3D in every conceivable direction?
These plugins make Rhino 3D the optimal solution for an incredible diversity of vertical markets
I guess the answer is that all of these factors contribute tremendous value to Rhino users. In my opinion what pushes the popularity of Rhino to the next level is the variety and quality of plug-ins. These tools, created by advanced users as well as by professional software developers, make Rhino the optimal solution for an incredible diversity of vertical markets. You can be an architect, jewelry designer, or a shoe designer — just to name a few — and the Rhino "family" has a professional, high quality, affordable solution for you.
The Rhino platform also supports plug-ins intended to improve horizontal features, shared by all Rhino users, such as modeling and rendering. Among these horizontal plug-ins T-Splines and V-Ray are extremely popular.
T-Spline for Rhino is a powerful extension to the modeling engine of Rhino that can simplify the creation of rich and sophisticated shapes while preserving 100% compatibility with the Rhino platform.
V-Ray for Rhino is a fast and powerful rendering system able to produce amazingly photorealistic images of 3D Rhino models.
On June 23, 2009 between 1:30 PM and 2:30 PM EDT you will have the opportunity to see how T-Splines and V-Ray can work together to improve your Rhino 3D. This instructional webinar will feature two exceptional experts:

Fernando Rentas, 3D Visual Artist and V-Ray Trainer (Fernando's profile on RhinoJungle)
