Rhino 6

Rhino3d is one of the most versatile modelling software in the world. It is used by architects, designers, jewellers, engineers, builders and makers, adapting to each one’s needs. Whether you are creating, editing, analysing, documenting, rendering or animating 3d models Rhino3d will bring unparalleled performance at a very competitive pricing.

While handling freeform surfaces in NURBS format, Rhino3d can manage also lines, curves, point clouds and mesh geometry, making it one of the most sought-after software for interoperability today.

Used by architecture studios like Zaha Hadid Architects, MAD Architects, BIG, 3XN, UN Studio all around the worlds, facilitates free form modelling of smooth, organic-like surfaces and streamlines their construction.

Rhino can create, edit, analyse, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS* curves, surfaces, and solids, point clouds, and polygon meshes. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size beyond those of your hardware.

Special features include:

  • Uninhibited free-form 3D modelling tools like those found only in products costing 20 to 50 times more. Model any shape you can imagine.
  • Accuracy needed to design, prototype, engineer, analyze, and manufacture anything from an airplane to jewellery.
  • Compatibility with all your other design, drafting, CAM, engineering, analysis, rendering, animation, and illustration software.
  • Read and repair meshes and extremely challenging IGES 
  • 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. Affordable purchase price. No maintenance fees.

Windows and Mac

Rhino 6 is now available for Windows and Mac. Use your Rhino 6 licence to work on a Mac or on a Windows session. Just sit down at a computer, login to your Rhino account while using the Cloud Zoo and start working. A familiar Rhino interface and almost full functionality is now available to Mac users. Grasshopper is also included and some plugins have support for Mac also.

Presentation and rendering

An improved presentation features in Rhino 6 enables you to communicate better in every stage of design, from conceptual work to final product presentations and animation. A wide range of preset materials, a new rendering engine and OpenGL support for gaming and professional video cards make Rhino the perfect tool to capture, render and present your projects more beautifully.


The world’s foremost parametric modelling software for architects and designers now comes included in Rhino 6. All of your past scripts are fully compatible with Rhino 6, along with some other improvements like: high dpi output, parallel processing, ability to code inside a Grasshopper node.
In the past decade Grasshopper has become a very robust development platform that offers a solid foundation for may incredible third party components ranging from environmental analysis to robotic control.

3d drawing and drafting

Take advantage of new drawing tools that transform your 3d model into 2d representations for documentation and illustration. Customize the appearance and deliver vector format 2d drawings of your 3d vision.


Use a full range of customizable annotations to document your projects with rich text and layout tools. Presenting the process of your project hasn’t been easier in 2d or in 3d visualizations.

Mesh geometry

Edit Mesh geometry with ease. Check mesh integrity, repair, create or modify mesh geometry. Convert NURBS to mesh and prepare geometry for fabrication.


Extend your Rhino functionality with an ecosystem of plugins and an open set of development tools. Now its even easier to find documentation online with guides and API references for advanced programming. Go to Food4Rhino for a full resource of scripts definitions, tutorials, materials or plugins to extend the functionality of your Rhino 3d modeller.
