Comprehensive 3D modeling software that enables you to create and analyze mathematical representations of three dimensional objects
Rhinoceros is a 3D modeling software for Mac OS X that packs a plethora of efficient tools that will help you create, render, and manage the surfaces that form your 3D objects.
Command driven 3D modeling application that can help you create high-quality designs
The Rhinoceros working environment integrates various drawing tools featuring extensive customization options, but also incorporates a vast collection of commands that can be used to deal with more complex tasks.
For your convenience, Rhinoceros allows you to access these commands through menus or toolbars, but also integrates a simple search bar that makes automatic suggestions. Rhinoceros comes with a default commands set, but you get to define your own via the app’s Preferences.
Analyze the included objects, create annotations, and fully render the 3D model
Rhinoceros combines the NURBS modeler with other analysis tools to help you evaluate, among other things, the distance between different points, the angle between two lines, or the length and the radius of a curve.
To keep all the elements of a model organized, Rhinoceros enables you to organize them into layers, groups, or blocks. In addition, you have the option to integrate text or image annotation and store details about a particular object surface.
You get to preview the result in real time, but Rhinoceros also integrates extended rendering capabilities: you get to add both lighting effects and materials to give a more realistic look to your project.
Powerful 3D design software that packs a plethora of efficient editing and analysis tools
Rhinoceros has everything it needs to help you develop mathematically precise 3D models, but it might prove to be slightly counter intuitive for inexperienced users.
However, the developers provide an extensive documentation, and even video tutorials that will show you how to deal with common tasks.
