RhinoCity is a plugin for Rhino dedicated to realistic modelling of land and cities in 3D.
Featuring a unique building modeler and extensive automatic texturing capabilities, RhinoCity is the ideal tool to produce high quality, textured 3D data that can be used directly in CityGML format.
RhinoCity allows you to generate buildings, roads, infrastructure, and other urban elements using parametric modeling techniques. It allows you to manipulate and edit city layouts, adjust building heights, apply textures and materials, and perform analyses such as shadow studies, line of sight calculations, and urban density assessments.
AUTOMATIC 3D MODELING
RhinoCity™ produces exact 3D models using a unique and innovative boolean extrusion engine.
By combining geometry (3D polygons) and semantic information, the RhinoCity™ 3D modeler automatically produces a 3D model whose accurancy is the guarantee of :
Exact walls, roofs and footprints surfaces
A 3D model composed of watertight volumes
Optimized 3D data good for 3D analysis and studies : solar, wave propagation, noise, wind...
PRODUCE, EDIT, ANALYZE, TEXTURE
RhinoCity™ allows you to:
Import any file in CityGML format, an official international standard of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). In particular, it can import and render textured 3D models.
Create a 3D model at LOD2 or LOD3 Level Of Detail using an unique and innovating automatic 3D modeler.
Texture your 3D model automatically using vertical and/or oblique aerial images.
Export your textured 3D model in CityGML format.
Gain free access to more and more urban models in CityGML format.
RhinoCity™ allows automatic texturing of your 3D models in just a few clicks !
Oriented images taken from vertical and/or oblique aerial shots are processed fully automatically to extract the textures necessary for the perfect rendering of 3D models.
ANALYSIS AND EDITING OF 3D GEOMETRIES
The quality of 3D data useful for modeling is a decisive factor in the accuracy of the 3D models that will be produced. To guarantee this quality and ensure that the 3D models that will result, RhinoCity™ includes all the tools needed to control and edit your 3D data.
3D Tiles is an open specification designed for streaming heterogenous 3D geospatial content. Submitted to the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) by a team led by Cesium, the OGC has approved the 3D Tiles Specification 1.0 for adoption as Community Standard. RhinoCity™ allows the 3D Tiles export of your 3D textured data!
