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

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.
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 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.
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.
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 has been completely rewritten to provide faster, better, cleaner, more customizable results.
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.
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.

Edu Proof

Proof of Academic Status


If you are a student with an acceptable form of academic ID at a primary school, secondary school, college, university, or career state-accredited school, you qualify to order a single-user educational license.

Provide your academic ID AND one of the following with your order:

  • Your current class schedule DATED for the current school term
  • Your transcript DATED for the current school term
  • Your tuition bill DATED for the current school term

There is a limit of one license per product, per individual at the Educational price.

The Educational license is for that individual's own use -not to be shared with others, or installed throughout their company.


If you are a member of the faculty or staff with an acceptable form of academic ID at a primary school, secondary school, college, university, or career state-accredited school, you qualify to order a single-user educational license.

Provide one of the following with your order:

  • Your current course schedule DATED for the current school term
  • Faculty/staff pay stub from the current school term


Any government accredited school can order single-user educational licenses or lab licenses on a school purchase order or procurement card.

These licenses can only be run on computers owned by the school.

Sending the Proof

Information regarding where to send your Proof of Educational Status will be automatically e-mailed to you upon receipt of your order. You can also check our Educational Orders FAQ.

I love it

Easy to use, let you design with no restrictions like SolidWorks. More for designers than Engineers.

Rhino 5 Educational version

I find Rhino is easy to learn as opposed to other 3D programs. And I love the unrollsrf tool. And the price is great!

Rhino: so-so; Grasshopper - Phenomenal!

It's all about grasshopper, kangaroo, and galapagos.

As someone used to parametric modelling in Inventor, rhino feels like a significant step backwards. Sure it's got way more useful surface and spline modelling tools, but it just feels klunky and limited. For instance, fillets need to be done in a specific order (large to small) in order to not break your model! Once a small fillet is applied, you'd need to revert to a save prior to the small fillet in order to apply a larger fillet to a touching edge. Lunacy :-(

However, if you model (or import) geometry, and apply interesting things in Grasshopper, there is significant power. Grasshopper has blown my mind. It's not perfect, but it's incredibly powerful, and fairly fast to use. I wish there was better documentation on all the various functions. Perhaps one day soon there will be.

Buy rhino only to get access to grasshopper and it's plugins.

Fast, painless transaction.

Nothing to see here. Back to work. ;)


Great product, Great Price, Great Service.
