V-Ray 5 for Rhino 3D
The all-in-one visualization solution for Rhino and Grasshopper.
V-Ray 5 for Rhino is a 3D rendering software that combines real-time and photoreal rendering into one complete suite of visualization tools. From architecture to product design, it’s everything you need to bring your next design project to life.
Visualize in real-time.
New in V-Ray 5, V-Ray Vision gives you a live real-time view as you build your model, apply materials, and light your Rhino and Grasshopper designs. Now you can visualize any project in real-time while you design.
Turn your vision into reality.
With photorealistic lights, cameras, and materials, rendering with V-Ray is as real as it gets. Communicate and collaborate with confidence, knowing that your designs look just right.

Go beyond rendering.
Introducing all-new tools that let you fine-tune and finish your renders without needing an extra app. Composite render layers, make color corrections, and instantly adjust lighting in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer.
Elevate your designs.
Choose from a collection of smart assets — including high-quality models of plants, people, vehicles and furniture — and give your project real-world context. The all-new Chaos® Cosmos asset browser lets you easily place render-ready 3D content right into your Rhino scene.

Straightforward workflow. Powerful functionality.
V-Ray for Grasshopper comes with exclusive components for geometry, lighting, materials, rendering, and animation.
No baking needed
Iterate your designs faster with a live connection between Grasshopper and Rhino—no baking or export required.
Visualize in real-time
Now for the first time, you can visualize your Grasshopper designs in real-time with the new Live Link component for V-Ray Vision.
Give your designs the right look. There are multiple ways to apply materials to your Grasshopper model. You can assign a simple material override, or you can select from a preset, a file, or a project.
See your models in their best light. Simulate any natural, artificial, or image-based lighting condition with a wide range of light types and presets.
The V-Ray Timeline component lets you animate geometry, cameras, and light
Quickly populate your scene with detailed entourage such as plants and trees. With V-Ray Proxies, you can randomly scatter lightweight stand-ins for detailed objects that only show at render time.
Accurately visualize the light levels in your scene with the Lighting Analysis component. This render element can show Luminance and Illuminance measurements as a colored gradient or a grid of values.
V-Ray for Grasshopper includes multiple camera types: physical cameras with controls for aperture, shutter speed, and ISO; orthographic cameras; and stereoscopic 3D cameras.
Easily render simple sections or complex cutaways with the help of the V-Ray Clipper component.
