More UpgradesThis is an Upgrade to Rhino 5.0 for Win

Upgrade to Rhino 5: Upgrade your old Rhino 1.x, 2.0, 3.0, or 4.0 to Rhino 5.0

Upgrade to Rhino 5.0 From Any Previous Versions is the market leader in industrial design modeling software. Highly complicated shapes can be directly modeled or acquired through 3D digitizers. With its powerful NURBS based engine Upgrade to Rhino 5.0 can create, edit, analyze, and translate curves, surfaces, and solids. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size.
McNeel's Upgrade to Rhino 5.0 also supports polygon meshes and point clouds for a complete coverage of geometric data types. With its unparalleled modeling power McNeel Upgrade to Rhino 5.0 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 in Upgrade to Rhino 5.0

Overview
In Upgrade to Rhino 5.0, McNeel fully embraced Grasshopper - the wildly popular visual programming language - by "baking it in." Grasshopper 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, 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, like Rhino, has become a robust development platform. Grasshopper provides the 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 Upgrade to Rhino 5.0 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'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 Rhino easier to install, license, and configure. There's a great new option to license Rhino using the Cloud Zoo. Please check out the new System Requirements as well.
Make2D
Make2D has been completely rewritten to provide faster, better, cleaner, more customizable results.
Rhino Refinements
Small quirks add up to painful paper cuts over the course of a prolonged modeling session. In Upgrade to Rhino 5.0, McNeel has fixed hundreds of minor bugs and consolidated disparate - but similar - features into single commands, making Rhino much more refined.
Development Platform
Rhino is more than just a modeler. With a rich ecosystem of plugins and an open set of development tools, Rhino is quickly becoming the development platform for those seeking to push the envelope of design. Upgrade to Rhino 5.0 brings major improvements to our free SDKs, with API refinements, better documentation, and more access to Rhino commands from Grasshopper.
Serengeti
McNeel has constantly improving Rhino. Upgrade to Rhino 5.0 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.
