Rhino 6 for Windows and Mac is the best industrial design modeling software, architectural design and CAD. Complicated shapes can be directly modeled with Rhino or acquired through 3D digitizers. Thanks to the most powerful NURBS based engine you can create, edit, analyze, and translate curves, surfaces, and solids. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size.

McNeel's Rhinoceros 3D also supports polygon meshes and point clouds for complete coverage of geometric data types. With its unparalleled NURBS modeling power this Software lets you focus on designing, not on cumbersome modeling workarounds.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Uninhibited free-form 3-D modeling tools like those found only in high-end systems. Model any shape you can imagine.
  • Accuracy needed to design, prototype, engineer, analyze, and manufacture anything from an airplane to jewelry.
  • Compatibility with all your other design, drafting, CAM, engineering, analysis, rendering, animation, and illustration software.
  • Read and repair extremely challenging IGES files.
  • Accessible. So easy to learn and use that you can focus on design and visualization without being distracted by the software.
  • Fast, even on an ordinary laptop computer. No special hardware is needed.
  • Development platform for hundreds of specialty 3D products.
  • Affordable. Ordinary hardware. Short learning curve. Priced like other Windows software. No maintenance fees.

What's New

Overview
McNeel fully embraced Grasshopper - the wildly popular visual programming language - by ""baking it in."" Grasshopper 3D is no longer beta; it's a stable development environment. McNeel has also rewritten some features and renovated workflows that needed fundamental overhauls to make them truly productive.
Grasshopper
The long beta period is over: Grasshopper 3D, the world's most beautiful programming language, is now a full-fledged part of Rhino. Used in some of the most ambitious design projects of the past decade, Grasshopper, has become a very robust and widely adopted development platform. Grasshopper provides a solid foundation for many incredible third-party components ranging from environmental analysis to robotic control.
Presentation
Presentation is key: during nearly every phase of design, you need to communicate, getting ""buy-in"" from clients, customers, collaborators, or the public at large. McNeel has improved Rhino with the aim of helping you present your work: be it ""quick and dirty"" or ""high- res glossy."" With major changes to Rendering, Materials, or just plain capturing the viewport, it's now easier and faster to present, discuss, make decisions, and iterate.
Display
Rhino 6 for Windows and Mac's new display pipeline is faster, more stable, and uses features found on modern graphics hardware, like GPU sensitive shaders and memory optimizations. This results in fewer GPU-specific display glitches and more consistent, beautiful, and frequent frames, even with large models. In some conditions, display speed can be up to 300% faster.
Documentation
Modeling is just one part of the design process; you also need to show how to build what is on the screen. McNeel has refined many parts of the documentation workflow, from a completely reworked annotation-style interface to better DWG support and RichText throughout. It's now easier to convey accurately and clearly the what and the how of your design.
Licensing & Administration
McNeel has worked hard to make its software easier to install, license, and configure. There's a great new option to manage your licenses using the Cloud Zoo (see paragraph below).
Make2D
Make2D has been completely rewritten to provide faster, better, cleaner, more customizable results.
Refinements
Small quirks add up to painful paper cuts over the course of a prolonged modeling session. McNeel has fixed hundreds of minor bugs and consolidated disparate - but similar - features into single commands, making Rhino much more refined.
Development Platform
This is more than just a CAD 3D modeler. With a rich ecosystem of plugins and an open set of development tools, i's is quickly becoming the development platform for those seeking to push the envelope of design. It comes with major improvements to the free SDKs, including refinements, better documentation, and improved access to Rhino commands from Grasshopper.
Serengeti
McNeel is constantly improving Rhino. Users have access to the Serengeti Community and our Work-In-Progress (WIP) builds. The WIP builds are where McNeel is developing future features like SubD support, Grasshopper 2, a new real-time rendering engine, and much more.

NOTE: Rhino 6 for Mac does not contain all commands found in Rhino 6 for Windows

Floating Licenses? Cloud Zoo is the answer

Cloud Zoo is a new option: It does not replace the existing license key system or Zoo, you can continue to use them. Cloud Zoo is a cloud-based license management system that:
  • Allows you to use Rhino by logging into the Cloud Zoo using your Rhino Account.
  • Allows you to track and manage your licenses and users.
  • Keeps track of the licenses you own.
  • Manages your licenses across multiple computers and users. (Run anywhere your license allows)
  • Allows you to use Rhino on multiple machines as long as you abide by the license agreement.

Great option for Rhino!

Had no issues whatsoever in purchasing and downloading Rhino 6 for Mac. Customer service was great and fast too when I asked any questions. Glad to have a discounted price for this product while still maintaining all of the regular functions and any upgrades in the future. Have recommended this site to my fellow work buddies as well. Thank you!

Very Affordable & Powerful 3D Modeling Software

Rhinoceros 3D is a very powerful and capable 3D modeling software. In rhinoceros 3D your limitation is your imagination.

Swiss Army Knife of 3D Modeling Software

First, this is a very powerful and affordable 3D modeling software that has amazing compatibility with other software due to the thorough file extension list available for exporting and importing.

Second, I really appreciate the fact that McNeel does not force it's users to repurchase the software every year like other companies choose to do.

As if that wasn't enough to make Rhino appealing, you now have Grasshopper's visual-scripting capability built in.

Overall, it is hard to beat this software if you consider the cost to performance ratio.

Rhino5

Rhino is a super program for generating 3D models. There are things it does well and things it does poorly. I use it in conjuction with RhinoCAM to generate toolpaths. It is powerful and easy to use. When using it to make models to share with other CAD systems, it is not great. As the models get more complex, they get leaky rather than be closed solids, it is painful to fix leaky solids, there is no nice way to do this, and leaky solids won't import into fussy CAD programs (SolidWorks).
