Rhino 6 for Windows and Mac
Rhino 6 or Rhinoceros (typically abbreviated Rhino, or Rhino3D) is a commercial 3D computer graphics and computer-aided design (CAD) application software developed by Robert McNeel & Associates, an American, privately-held, employee-owned company founded in 1980.
What’s New in Rhino 6? Overview
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.
We’ve 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’s new display pipeline is faster, more stable, and uses features found on modern graphics hardware, like GPU sensitive shaders and memory optimizations.
Licensing & Administration
We have worked hard to make Rhino 6 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 in Rhino 6 has been completely rewritten to provide faster, better, cleaner, more customizable results.
In Rhino 6, we’ve fixed hundreds of minor bugs and consolidated disparate – but similar – features into single commands, making Rhino much more refined.
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.
Rhino 6 brings major improvements to our free SDKs, with API refinements, better documentation, and more access to Rhino commands from Grasshopper.
System Requirements Hardware for Rhino 6:
- 8 GB memory (RAM) or more is recommended.
- 600 MB disk space.
- OpenGL 4.1 capable video card is recommended.
- No more than 63 CPU Cores.
- Multiple-button mouse with scroll wheel is recommended.
- The SpaceNavigator is supported.
Windows 10, 8.1, or 7 or Mac OSX
We’re constantly improving Rhino. Rhino 6 users have access to the Serengeti community and our Work-In-Progress (WIP) builds. The WIP builds are where we are developing future features like SubD support, Grasshopper 2, a new real-time rendering engine, and much more.
