V-Ray Next for Rhino Workstation License is a highly accurate renderer for Rhino, enabling designers to predict and present their designs with the highest level of realism and reduce the need for physical prototypes. V-Ray greatly increases Rhino's ability to handle large scenes and can be used directly within Grasshopper.

V-Ray Next for Rhino is much more than a do-it-all renderer that creates gorgeous images of your designs. It's also a full suite of tools to help you accomplish more in Rhino than ever before. V-Ray Next makes it easier to manage everything in your scene — even the crazy complex ones.

V-Ray Next for Rhino is smart, too. It learns from your scene to make lighting faster. And it can set your camera exposure and white balance automatically. It's fast. V-Ray Next for Rhino is 50% faster overall. GPU rendering is 2x faster. And it's up to 7x faster with the new Adaptive Dome Light. V-Ray Next for Rhino extends what is possible in Grasshopper even further - now you can animate Grasshopper definitions as well as cameras and sunlight, and measure real-world illumination values — all right in Grasshopper.

V-Ray Next for Rhino is compatible with Rhino 5 and Rhino 6. V-Ray for Rhino is supported on Windows only.

Customer Reviews

Based on 12 reviews
Love it!

Love V-Ray! HATE the dongle. You guys need to get rid of that antiquated method of controlling the license.

Great software, Novege = poor service

Novedge didn't put a license on key dongle the sent me as was suppose to be their policy for a commercial license. I floundered for a week wasting time (and $)with different answers from every IT rep, then finally I live chatted with Chaos group in Bulgaria and they said " oh you dont have a license, heres one" and it was fixed. The best I got from Novedge was "once again Sir, I'm sorry Im dealing with user problems all the time, you probably installed it wrong, try re-installing."  Dear BruceWe are very sorry about the delay you experienced. We already refunded the cost of the dongle. We are committed to giving all our customers the best support we can and we'll continue to review and improve our service. Thank you for sending your feedback.-- The Novedge Team

3 weeks, still not working

Not sure how good it is, we've had it for three weeks and it still doesnt work. Problem is Customer Service is out of Country and it takes many days to get a response. Any solution they have suggested hasnt worked, and then we have to wait another few days for the next suggestion. Terrible.


v-ray for rhino is great engine to render models and designs on rhino. Although v-ray is quit sophisticated in terms of its render properties, it produces quit sophisticated images. I would highly recommend using v-ray for rhino over other programs because the images produces are quit facinating in terms of quality and details.

V-ray for Rhino

I love, is perfect. Amazing!
