- NURBS Modeling for Windows
Start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, or only an idea. Rhinoceros
provides the tools to accurately model your designs ready for rendering,
animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing.
Rhino is very popular and many design and manufacturing companies including
Australia's major appliance designers use Rhino.
Freeform Modeling & 3D Scan Data Support
Rhino provides tools similar to that in high-end engineering modeling
programs. The tools allow for highly amorphous shapes to be designed
the computer. This means complex objects from cars to human bodies can
To make 3D computer modelling easier, faster and more accurate, Rhino
supports 3D scanning devices and has a number of features to make use
of 3D scanning
data. The Microscribe 3D digitizing arm is supported directly in Rhino,
and plugins are available to control the Roland PIX scanner as well.
Tools are available to use 3D scan data such as sectioning and surface
patching. The result is a more accurate model in a shorter period of

Rhino is accurate enough to be used in industry for consumer product design,
vehicle design and marine design. Files created in Rhino have been used
to make tools and dies.
A wide range of import and export options allows Rhino to communicate
with most 3D modeling, rendering and prototyping packages in the market
today. There are numerous file formats that can be imported or exported
by Rhino, some of which include IGES / IGS, DXF, STL and 3DS.
Rhino requires a standard Windows based PC. Even ordinary laptops can
run Rhino effectively. No special hardware is required, allowing home
hobbyists to use Rhino as well as professionals.
